Kate Upton, Wearing Actual Clothes, In Vogue Magazine

Inveterate bikini model and Florida girl Kate Upton was shot for this month's Vogue (the one with Emma Stone on the cover) in actual clothes. And as she is wont to tell you, it was a very strange experience. “I’m from Florida, where your whole wardrobe is flip-flops, cutoffs and bikinis," said Upton of the experience. Anna…

The Kim Kardashian Vogue Cover Is Here

I'm sure Anna Wintour is having a nasty hissy fit that her brand would deign to be associated with the likes of Kimmy Kardashian, but nevertheless, here it is, the L'Uomo Vogue cover featuring the perhaps maybe Ms. Future Kanye West. Because Vogue is cheeky like that, they've done the cover paparazzi style. [Vogue]…

Anna Wintour Finally Speaks Out About Vogue’s Asma al-Assad Profile

"Like many at that time, we were hopeful that the Assad regime would be open to a more progressive society. Subsequent to our interview, as the terrible events of the past year and a half unfolded in Syria, it became clear that its priorities and values were completely at odds with those of Vogue. The…

Anna Wintour For UK Ambassador?

Rumor has it Vogue editor Anna Wintour is being considered by President Obama for an ambassadorship to the UK as a "thank you" for her support. It's probably bullshit, though. [Styleite] Zac Efron and Lily Collins are dunzo. Quick, scoop him up fast, ladies! [US Weekly] Could there possibly be anything juicy in an unauthorized…

Anna Wintour Shills For Barack Obama

It's perhaps no surprise that the fashion world would come out in support of a more liberal presidential candidate. But what is shocking is that the normally quite demure Vogue editor Anna Wintour would deign to make a campaign video on behalf of one. But yet here is Ms. Wintour, openly praising and supporting Barack…

Kim Kardashian (Sort Of) Lands Her First Vogue Spread

The latest installment in the Kim Kardashian vs. Anna Wintour saga leaves a puzzling taste in the mouths of fashionistas everywhere. A week has passed since rumors first began to fly that Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue (and consequential arbiter of all things en vogue), is not only not a card-carrying member of the Kardashian fa…

What’s Beef? Apparently, Anna Wintour And Kim Kardashian Have It

Today in Things That Are Not At All Surprising: the queen of American fashion and the queen of American television are not gal pals. Rumor has it that the reason Kanye West turned up solo to the Met Ball on Monday night (and looked très bitter the entire evening) was that ladyfriend Kim Kardashian wa…

Stephen Colbert Begs Anna Wintour Not To Suck Him Into “Her Gay World”

Anna Wintour expressed a rare bit of enthusiasm on last night's "Colbert Report" in discussing President Obama's support of gay marriage. "I am thrilled," Wintour managed to get out with a smile, even. "There were tears in the office at Vogue today. I think it's a long overdue endorsement. And oh, they also discussed the…

The Fashion Flock Comes Out In Support Of Barack Obama

As if we need any more reason to believe that our President is as hip as they come: Obama's throwing a party in his hometown, and all the biggest fashion folks are invited. Back in February, the POTUS introduced Runway To Win, a fundraising effort featuring reasonably priced Barack-branded clothing and accessories with proceeds going…

Anna Wintour Wears Sunglasses Inside Because She Can

Last week, Anna Wintour attended a luncheon at the State Department in honor of Prime Minister David Cameron, and like any visitor to a prestigious event at a serious government building, she rocked a pair of dark shades inside. I'm a little surprised she wasn't arrested for such a blatant display of fierceness, but I'm…

Taylor Swift And Her Very Large Hat Cover “Vogue”

I love me some Taylor Swift, but honestly, I never thought she was the Vogue type. Tay-Tay is more suburban mall than bombshell and all those princess dresses are not exactly fashion-forward. But lo and behold, here she is on the February 2012 issue of Vogue with straightened hair and a big-ass wide-brimmed hat. Taylor look…

Anna Wintour Says Women Are Unfairly Criticized For Loving Fashion

"When women are in positions of power, and they’re featured in a women’s magazine like Vogue … they tend to be incredibly unfairly criticized. It’s an incredibly old-fashioned approach. Just because you’re in a position of power, and you look good and you enjoy fashion — does that mean you’re an idiot, or that it’…

What We Can Learn From Anna Wintour

When it comes to fashion, Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour is probably the most powerful woman in the world. It's not just that she commands the pages of one of the most-loved fashion mags, or that she conceived and developed Fashion's Night Out, it's that she oversees the Council of Fashion Designer of America…

Strange Bedfellows: Who’s Sitting With Whom At Fashion Week

Look at this picture and tell me this isn't one of the best things you've ever seen. Nicki Minaj making small talk with Vogue's Anna Wintour. Can you even imagine what they're chatting about? Nicki's probably all, "Lady, I like your floral situation," while Anna sits by, quietly horrified by Nicki's loud craft store-inspired get-up. Keep clicking for more…

Anna Wintour Doesn’t Think She’s Powerful

"I don’t think of myself as a powerful person. You know, what does it mean? It means you get a better seat in a restaurant or tickets to a screening or whatever it may be. But it is a wonderful opportunity to be able to help others, and for that I’m extremely grateful." --Vogue editor…

Morning Quickies: Is Anna Wintour Writing A Memoir? & Megan Fox “In Tears” Over Shia Hookup

Anna Wintour of Vogue is allegedly scratching out a memoir, although her rep denies it. I'm still holding out hope for the Grace Coddington memoir. [New York Post] "The Simpsons" invited Prince William and Kate Middleton to lend their voices to an episode during their visit to L.A.. Even though they got a personalized letter…

Anna Wintour Goes Geek At Webby Awards

Last night, internet-eratti gathered in New York for the 15th Annual Webby Awards, the event honoring the biggest movers and shakers on the web. To keep things streamlined, the event has instituted a policy calling for five word acceptance speeches. My favorite of the night? Anna Wintour, who said, "Sometimes geek can be chic." A…

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.
