Wintour Gets an OBE, Bee Gets a Sykes
Sorry, Glenda Bailey, you're no longer the only New York EIC with an OBE: Anna Wintour was similarly honored by the Queen, for "services to British journalism and British fashion in the US." Like Glenda, the Vogue editor can't assume the title "Dame," although really, how much more bowing and scraping does one person need? Meanwhile, her daughter Bee Shaffer, a Columbia student currently doing a semester at University College London, is reportedly dating Fred Sykes (third item), the younger brother of Anna's former protégée Plum Sykes. Social climbing is evidently in the Sykes' DNA: Plum and her twin sister Lucy both made sure to marry up.
