Talk about a signature style!

We already knew Anna Wintour had a trademark hairdo—the Vogue editor always rocks her sleek bob and bangs—but it turns out the fashionista also has a pair of go-to heels .

One look at photos from her recent trips to New York and London Fashion Week, and it's clear Wintour is wedded to her nude Manolo Blahnik slingbacks.

And, as it turns out, she's been obsessed with them since the '90s.

That's right, back in 1994, Wintour turned to famed shoe designer Manolo Blahnik to create a pair of heels that fit her foot precisely.

In fact, Blahnik used an exact model of the fashion guru's foot to create the slingback so that not so much as a pinky toe is pinched!

And as for that nude hue, Blahnik actually makes Wintour's shoes in two tones that have been custom-matched to suit her skin tone.

Perhaps one shade's for winter Anna and the other is for summer?

Wintour pairs also feature different sized criss-cross straps, including thin spaghetti like ones, as well as sturdier ones for when she needs a stronger support.

And for those of you who want to channel the fashion icon's fab footwear, we doubt you can call on Manolo to mold a heel to your foot, but you may be interested to know that the styles Wintour wears are called the Callasli and the Botti.

But we should warn you that an Anna-size income is probably necessary, as the shoes retail for close to $800, which is enough to make any fashionable girl stumble—slingback or not!
