Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, is the latest star/victim of the magazine’s ”73 Things” interview series. The normally private and icy editor-in-chief seems cool with poking fun at herself, so maybe she’s human after all! Spoiler alert: she actually approves of Brooklyn, admires the gladiator-like quality of tennis players (which she clearly channels), and throws some trademark shade when a model brings up her least-favorite fashion word. Oh yeah, and all those rumors about her? They’re true. [Fashionista]
The fashion world is up in arms at the rumor the Anna Wintour is considering Sarah Jessica Parker to take her place as the next editor-in-chief of Vogue. Sometimes I confuse SJP with her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw. They’re both New York fixtures and total fashionistas, which is why it would make perfect sense for SJP to succeed Anna Wintour and run the magazine. Well, it sort of would, if we ignore the fact that she has no editorial experience that I know of and that there are Vogue employees who have been with the company for decades and toiled their way up to an opportunity like that through years of hard work.

Lena Dunham is just about as divisive a celebrity as they come. As seemingly harmless as she is, there’s still a faction of people, young and old, who cannot stand her. Seriously, with the way some armchair critics react to Dunham, you would think she straight-up murdered someone’s grandma’s puppy. But one thing that’s inarguable, even amongst the haterz, is that since “Girls” first premiered in early 2012, Lena Dunham has been eeeeeeverywhere: she’s won Golden Globes, she’s opened the Emmys, she’s coordinated nail art with Zooey Deschanel, she’s scored a $3.7 million book deal, she’s milked a cow in a NYC street (and we still don’t know why). Throughout all this, Dunham has by and large been pigeonholed as the “average girl,” the “relatable girl,” even (and still!!) as the “fat girl.” We wonder, how would a rumored Vogue cover affect that?

“No, no, no. I was just into my magazines and the drawings. I had a very strict upbringing, almost puritanical. I lived there all the way through college. I was in my grandmother’s house, and I respected that! [I] had very gay experiences, yes, I swear on my grandmother’s grave that I never slept with a single designer in my life. Never, ever desired, never was asked, never was approached, never, ever bought, in my entire career. Never. Not one. Skinny or fat. Never.”
– Vogue editor and muumuu-wearer extraordinaire Andre Leon Talley, who rejects the label “gay,” says that he’s fallen in love twice, both times with women (and neither of them Anna Wintour). As for his relationship with Wintour, Talley says “I wouldn’t have stayed at Vogue as long as I did without Anna being there. She was my biggest ally. There could not have been another way.” And also: “Ms. Wintour has had her bob since she was in her 20s. I have never seen her hair pulled back. Never. Not even at tennis.” [Vanity Fair]
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held this past Saturday. Traditionally meant to be a dinner held for members of the press covering the administration, of late, the annual dinner has morphed into a glamorous celeb-filled kind of thing. I mean, Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian went last year, guys! But seriously, the Correspondents’ Dinner is the one time of year that politicos and the press corps mingle and imbibe in a no-stress, yelling-free environment.
We’ve grouped the evening’s attendees based on the colors they wore — navy, green and red were all strong contenders along with basic black and white. And we want to know: Who do you think wore it best? Start voting after the jump! Keep reading »
