Say hello to Dame Anna Wintour!

Fresh off her co-chair duties at the Met Gala in New York City, the Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue received the highly prestigious title for her services and influence to fashion and journalism from Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace in London, England, on Friday.

The queen looked equally fab, chic in a long-sleeved, turquoise dress and black pumps. Wintour respectfully removed her sunglasses shortly before entering the palace to speak with the 91-year-old royal.
