    Britain's monarch has met a queen of the fashion world, as Vogue editor Anna Wintour was made a Dame Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II.

    Wintour was made a dame — female equivalent of a knight — for services to fashion and journalism in a Buckingham Palace ceremony on Friday.

    The U.K.-born editor arrived wearing her ever-present sunglasses, but removed them before entering the palace ballroom.

    She said afterward that the queen had struggled to find a place to pin the insignia on Wintour's pink belted Chanel outfit.
