WINTOUR’S PALACE JAUNT: Anna Wintour made a trip back to her hometown of London last week, when she collected her OBE, or Officer of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire honor, from Buckingham Palace.

After Wintour received the OBE, which she pinned to the pale blue Chanel suit she wore with Manolo Blahnik boots, she told reporters at the palace that many of her American colleagues weren’t quite sure what the award represents.
