Anna Wintour has been awarded one of the United Kingdom’s highest accolades. As WWD reports, the iconic Vogue editor-in-chief has received the honorable designation of DBE — Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire — from Queen Elizabeth. Wintour attended a Buckingham Palace ceremony to receive the DBE, which rewards exemplary contributions to the arts, culture and sciences.

In an offical statement, a spokesperson for the British government’s Cabinet Office had nothing but praise for the 67-year-old. “Anna Wintour has been a tireless advocate for established and emerging designers. In the U.K. alone, she has promoted the careers of such talents as Sarah Burton, John Galliano, Christopher Bailey, Erdem Moralioglu and Christopher Kane.”

Previously, Wintour received the OBE — Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire — honor back in 2008. This new designation is the Queen’s Cabinet Office and its committee’s way of recognizing Wintour’s continued pursuit of the highest forms of success and acclaim in her field.
