Anna Wintour is not leaving US Vogue any time soon, Condé Nast CEO Bob Sauerberg said in a statement to Women's Wear Daily yesterday, addressing rumors that this year's September issue might be her last.

"Wintour is an incredibly talented and creative leader whose influence is beyond measure," Sauerberg said, adding that the editor-in-chief has agreed to work with him in her roles at the company "indefinitely." Condé Nast shared the statement via tweet:

The statement follows a HuffPost report that the notoriously exacting Wintour had ceded "unprecedented control" of Vogue's September cover to its subject, Beyoncé. The move not only highlights the singer's monumental level of influence but also a potential shift in Vogue policy. Beyoncé’s choice of 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell makes him the first black photographer to shoot the cover in Vogue's 126-year history.

The HuffPost report notes that Wintour has always controlled every facet of the cover shoot, including the outfits.

Wintour has served as Vogue editor-in-chief since 1988 and Condé Nast’s artistic director since 2013.

Will Anna Wintour work at Vogue until the end of time? Place your bets in the comments.
