Vogue editor Anna Wintour and author Margaret Drabble were accorded some of the highest honors in the Queen's Birthday List made public today.
Drabble was made a dame, the equivalent of a knight.
Wintour, editor-in-chief of the U.S. edition of Vogue, was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, or OBE. A London native, she is among the most influential figures in fashion.
"I am totally thrilled at this recognition, particularly since it coincides with my 20th anniversary as editor of American Vogue," Wintour said Friday.
Richard Rogers, the architect of Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5, was made a Companion of Honor, an award limited to 65 living people including theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, former Prime Minister Sir John Major and dramatist Harold Pinter.
