Anna Wintour was made a dame at Buckingham Palace on Friday by Queen Elizabeth II.

The Vogue editor-in-chief received the honor for her services to the fashion and journalism worlds. Wintour wore her signature Chanel dress and oversized sunglasses.

Wintour told the press what she said to the Queen in their brief exchange.

“I congratulated her on Prince Philip’s service because obviously that’s so remarkable and such an inspiration to us all,” she said.

Wintour was joined at the event by her daughter Bee Shaffer. The 67-year-old fashionista posed for a picture after the ceremony, which her daughter shared on Instagram. “Dame AW,” the caption stated.
