Legendary Vogue US editor Anna Wintour has been bestowed the Legion d’Honneur by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, no less, at a ceremony at the Elysee Palace last week that was attended by cheering glitterati. Wintour was awarded a Chevalier (Knight) of the Order, an honor established by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802 and the highest order of decoration in France. Wearing hot-off-the-runway Chanel Couture, Anna accepted her pin in front of an audience that included Bernard Arnault, Karl Lagerfeld, Stefano Pilati, Donatella Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Alber Elbaz, Franca Sozzani, and Riccardo Tisci.
