Anna is above all, because she is not just a mere fashion journalist. She single-handedly holds the pulse of fashion: she talks to Arnault and Miuccia at the same time, she decides what will be in departments stores and what will be eliminated. She is not just 'talking' about fashion and style in general: she makes it relevant and reach actual people. It is not just journalism she covers and cares about - it is also the business and sales.
Horyn's job is not that. She just analyzes fashion within the parameters of fashion and style at large. The most she can afford to do is to be analitical and cerebral in her approach. Same is true with Menkes. While the work of a regular editor is not necessarily what Anna does, she is obviously a true exception. She cannot just say Tisci was horrid: she has to think about her relationship with LVMH and department stores as well. But she may reject his looks and eliminate them from Vogue for that season and that would send the justified and appropriate message to the designer, head-honcho and to the rest of the fashion elite.
That's what she did to Yves, Alaia, and many others. Anyways, there are very few steps these contemporary Parisian designers take without her approval and consent, since as we all know, she 'visits' these designers before the fashion week and give her
Horyn obviously doesn't have that influence or allure about her. Not even Carine.
