There is always talk about US Vogue editors Anna Wintour and Diana Vreeland but nobody ever mentions Grace Mirabella. She is known as one of the nicest Vogue editors of all time, and she's Italian nuff said :)
I find her career to be very inspiring,
Her early career started by working in a family friend's sportswear shop and after college, Mirabella held several junior positions in the retail business. In her early career, she worked at Macy's as an executive trainee and Saks Fifth Avenue, as an assistant to the sales promotion manager.
In the early 1950s Grace Mirabella was hired as an assistant at Vogue, where she soon was promoted to editor. During most of the 1960s, Mirabella held the position as editor in chief Diana Vreeland's associate. Eventually, in 1971, Grace Mirabella was promoted to editor in chief. Mirabella was replaced by Anna Wintour in 1988. In the 1990s, she published her own magazine, Mirabella, with the financial assistance of Rupert Murdoch.
