These photo of notoriously purse-lipped Anna Wintour laughing and smiling while walking around Milan are making me giddy with glee. It’s like in high school when you work so hard all year to make your stone-faced digital media teacher show any sign of emotion, and after 8 months of effort, you make a random MS Paint animation of your best friend’s leg falling off, and when you present it to the class he cracks a tiny little smile, and you’re like, “Yes! My work here is done,” and then you stop trying in class and end up getting a B-. Or was that just me? Anyway, Anna looks happy and stylish and generally awesome. My work here is done.

There are some things in life that just belong together. For instance: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne. I’ve only been to Walmart once, when I accompanied my then-boyfriend to purchase a Bear Grylls-brand camping knife, but the politically conservative megastore definitely did not strike me as the sort that would have any feasible tie to liberal-leaning publishing goliath and Anna Wintour employer Condé Nast. And yet! Beauty Scoop, Wal-Mart’s 12-page editorial “shopazine,” exists, and it features original pieces from editors of familiar Condé glossies like Allure, Glamour, and Lucky. Keep reading »

Anna Wintour’s Boyfriend Of 13 Years Defends Her Rumored Ambassadorship

“It’s a little bit of male chauvinism … It’s not just Anna — I see powerful women who really get slammed for being too forthright or running their business in a very determined way. If [former GE CEO] Jack Welch were being named as a potential ambassador, people wouldn’t be saying, ‘Oh, but hang on, Jack’s a little strict in the way he runs his companies.’”

Shelby Bryan, telecommunications pioneer, international business executive, venture capitalist (disclaimer, I just copy and pasted that straight off his Wikipedia page), and Anna Wintour‘s longtime boyfriend, doesn’t exactly confirm the rumor of his significant other’s potential ambassadorship, but he stands to defend the idea of it. I’m not surprised that Anna’s partner of 13 years appears to be intelligent, sensible, and savvy to the existence of gender inequality and double standards in the business arena. Because, you know, Nuclear Wintour does not suffer fools, and she certainly does not suffer foolish men. Just one question: does this Mr. Bryan have a son? [Racked]

  • The rumor that Anna Wintour is a candidate for a political ambassadorship in England is just that ― a rumor ― but that tiny detail certainly didn’t stop wig-wearer and professional wackjob Donald Trump from endorsing her. Live. On Fox News. Awkward. [Fashionista]
  • A new survey says that women apply approximately three times the amount of makeup during the holiday season that they do on an average day. I’m not surprised; everyone knows there’s no better time than Christmas and New Years to pile on the glitter eyeshadow. [Daily Mail]
  • Gender-bending model Andrej Pejic gets the Warhol treatment, posing as three of Andy’s favorite Factory girls (Nico, Edie Sedgwick, and Candy Darling, specifically) for Du Jour magazine. Says former Interview editor and Warhol friend Glenn O’Brien, “Andy would have been fascinated by Andrej.” We’re inclined to agree. [Refinery29]

Vogue Forever!

People who say they read Vogue for the articles are missing the point. Vogue is about fashion, fashion, fashion — and the keepers of the fashion pages are the fashion editors. A new HBO documentary, ”In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye,” chronicles Vogue fashion editors past and present. In addition to well-loved Grace Coddington, “In Vogue” features interviews with past editors Babs Simpson, Tonne Goodman, Phyllis Posnick, Jade Hobson, Carlyne Cerf, Polly Mellen and Camilla Nickerson.  We want to know everything about Polly Mellen, who refers to herself as “the spoiled brat of the fashion world.” The documentary airs December 6 on HBO. We’ll be watching!

Anna Writing A Memoir?

Is Anna Wintour writing an autobiography? Read More »

So much has been said about Anna “Nuclear” Wintour, but she doesn’t seem to say much herself. The longtime Vogue editor-in-chief conducts herself just about as privately as it gets, so when rumors flew last summer that she was in the process of writing a memoir, we had our doubts. After all, the woman only gives an interview once in a blue moon (and even then, it’s only in the interest of her magazine), let alone a tell-all book. In a rare move, Wintour took to Telegraph this week to talk everything from her father (the editor of the London Evening Standard newspaper) to her creative director and contemporary Grace Coddington’s new read. But here’s what you really want to know: what does she really look for in a potential hire? The answer might surprise you.

“I look for strong people,” she says of her staff. “I don’t like people who’ll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue, and disagree, and have a point of view that’s reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to the Standard. I try to do that here, too.”
