Amy Schumer as Anna Wintour

Schumer (Vogue's July cover star) isn't the only one in Hollywood to impersonate the queen bee of fashion.

Amy Schumer covers Vogue's July issue, looking red hot in a strapless ruched dress by Dolce & Gabbana. To accompany her first-ever cover for the fashion bible, the comedian also filmed a nearly four-minute sketch in which she's seen swapping roles with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Hilarity ensues as Schumer tries (and fails) to prove she can easily handle Wintour's job when she's unable to differentiate between two identical sweaters. Meanwhile, Wintour shows she's a natural on stage at New York's Comedy Cellar (there's even a mic drop at the end!).

Schumer is only the latest star to parody the infamous Wintour. Check out all the other times actors, comedians — and even a cartoon — have impersonated the ruler of fashion. 

Maya Rudolph on Maya & Marty

Beyond the accurate voice impression, Rudolph shows us a side of Wintour that we have yet to see — one that enjoys stealing hot sauce packets and hosting editorial meetings at Han's Deli Bodega.

Ryan Raftery

The actor behind the one-man musical "Ryan Raftery is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion" gives us a taste of what we could expect from Wintour if she ever pursued a Broadway career.

Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada

Though the Oscar-winning actress created her own interpretation of icy cold, intimidating Miranda Priestly, many have believed that the character was based on Wintour.

Edna Mode in The Incredibles

It's not hard to see why fans would interpret designer Edna Mode in the Pixar animated film as the Vogue EIC, given her classic bob, blunt bangs and strong personality.
