Rumors About Anna Wintour, Illustrated

There are tons of rumors about Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour. Illustrator Lisa Hanawalt has documented the ones she’s heard (and a few she probably made up) in a series of hilarious drawings.

Anna Wintour was one of the speakers at Teen Vogue‘s annual “Fashion University” event for teens, which features seminars and panels on the industry and careers.

Tim Gunn Speaks Ill Of Anna Wintour, Enters Witness Protection Program

Tim Gunn‘s new book, Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work, was released today and before you buy a copy, you absolutely must A) read our Q&A with the “Project Runway” guru and B) watch this clip of Tim visiting “Regis & Kelly” this morning. Remember that story about how Tim and a colleague from Parsons saw Anna Wintour being carried down five flights of stairs by her bodyguards after a fashion show? Well, Anna caught wind of it and, damn, she was not happy. Anna‘s director of communications called up Tim and demanded an apology. “For what?” he asked. “For implying that she doesn’t know how to work a Manolo?” Yes, this qualifies as a problem for some people.

Anna Wintour Educates Jimmy Fallon On Fashion’s Night Out: “No Sales!”


Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs stayed up past their bedtimes last night (well, maybe just Anna) to talk about Fashion’s Night Out on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” The best part is when Jimmy asks Anna a bit about FNO, saying, “So the stores stay open and you have, like, sales?” To which Anna responds, “No sales! Full price!” Marc chimes in, “Things are for sale, they’re not on sale.” Classic. It’s at the end when Wintour attempts a weird joke about Fallon, Jacobs, and bananas that we get lost.

That Anna Wintour, She’s Such A Doll!

A job at Vogue? No, thank you. But we would love these two pint-sized dolls of editor Anna Wintour and creative director Grace Coddington. Barneys New York commissioned tiny Anna and Grace to be auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com, beginning August 31st, to benefit the NYC AIDS Fund. The anime-eyed pair took two weeks to make and artist Andrew Yang even trimmed Anna’s bob himself! [NY Times] Keep reading »
