In Case You Care: Bee Shaffer Has A Blog, Doesn’t Have A Copy Editor

Bee Shaffer, spawn of Anna Wintour, has launched herself a blog called New York Notebook. In the About section: “Hi I’m Bee Shaffer. You might know me from gossip blogs and others, but let me tell you, you ain’t seen nothing yet. This page is where I write my thoughts and observations about life, fashion, people and other things.” Huh, that’s funny, because hasn’t Miss Shaffer been famously quoted as saying, “I really don’t want to work in fashion.”

OK, whatever, young people are allowed to change their minds any number of times in their life. (God knows we have.) And to her credit, the title “New York Notebook” is really quite catchy. However, you’d think that perhaps the daughter of one of the most famous magazine editors in the world would have learned a thing or two about copy editing (or writing in general, for that matter) before posting her prose for the world to see. Just a few glaring errors that we can’t quite get over, after the jump … Keep reading »

PETA Not The Only Anna WIntour Protesters

This season, Anna Wintour decided to cut her trip to Milan for Fashion Week short, which angered designers hoping to seat the editor at their shows. In retaliation, these protesters, clad in signature Wintour bob wigs and sunglasses, and T-shirts announcing, “I will only stay for 3 days,” took to the streets. Oooh, snap! Betcha Anna wasn’t too amused. [Also, bet she didn't care. -- Editor] [TweetPhoto] Keep reading »

Carey Mulligan Ignores Anna Wintour’s Oscar Advice

While not everyone was crazy about the black and white Vionnet dress Carey Mulligan wore to the BAFTA Awards last weekend, the 24-year-old actress thinks she has everything under control in the wardrobe department. Carey told People StyleWatch she’s not going to follow Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s advice when she’s picking her dress for the Academy Awards.

“Anna said I should wear short for the Oscars. I was like ‘No, that is so not what I had in my head when I was six years old!’”

While it’s surprising that Carey would even consider disobeying the queen of the fashion world, we think it’s notable Anna suggested Carey wear a short dress to a fancy affair. Sure, we’ve seen cocktail dresses at black-tie weddings, but these are the Oscars we’re talking about. It seems our culture has gotten so casual that the rules of formal dressing have been completely thrown out the window.

Do you think short dresses are appropriate for black-tie affairs? [People StyleWatch] Keep reading »
