Anna Wintour Named Elective Trustee of Metropolitan Museum of Art

Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue (not that she needs an introduction), was named elective trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday, WWD reports. Wintour has been an honorary trustee of the museum since 1999, and has co-chaired numerous benefits, raising millions of dollars in the process. She will now be a voting member of the board.

Wintour is particularly well-known for her involvement with the Costume Institute Gala, where celebrities go to play really, really expensive dress-up, and get their outfits dissected ad nauseum (Costume Institute outfit analysis has since become its own cottage industry). Last week’s gala bought in $10.4 million.
