Happy 61st birthday, Jeanne Beker!

The Canadian fashion icon, known for her ground-breaking work on 'Fashion Television,' celebrated the milestone on March 19 amid Toronto Fashion Week and surrounded, it seems, by fashionable friends (such as Canada's Anna Wintour, Lisa Tant).

Beker seemed flattered by all the well-wishes, saying in a Tweet:


Jeanne Beker
Overwhelmed by all the beautiful birthday wishes! Definitely feeling the love. So much appreciated!

Beker is famous for making fashion accessible to the rest of us, and has conducted many interviews with designers, models and editors at the top of their game.

Some of her best moments come when she's not doing interviews at all, such as the time when she almost got trampled by reporters who were rushing to talk to Prince at the Chanel show or the time when she slammed Madonna's movie "Body of Evidence."
