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 »

Would You Rather … Dress Like Vintage Wintour Or Johnny Weir?

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.

We were shocked upon seeing this 1992 photo of Anna Wintour in her shiny shirt-skirt getup. We have to wonder which would be less painful: wearing the Vogue editor’s fashion faux pas or something out of Johnny Weir‘s closet? Thing is, we’re not sure there’s much of a difference … Keep reading »

A snap of Anna Wintour in 1992 shows that the editor wasn’t quite in Vogue. Plus, we’re pretty sure we saw that same outfit at American Apparel last week. [Magic Molly] Keep reading »

Quotable: Tim Gunn Saw Anna Wintour Being Carried Down The Stairs

“I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won’t-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna [Wintour] would deign to get on. She wasn’t there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs. The bodyguards had made a fireman’s lock and were racing her from landing to landing. She was sitting on their crossed arms.”

—Tim Gunn of “Project Runway” writes in his new book, Gunn’s Golden Rules, about a run-in with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in 2006. Anna is notoriously elevator-phobic. [NY Post]

Anna Under The Influence

Anna Wintour‘s recent outrage over Miss Lily, a Jamaican restaurant she thinks will bring excessive noise to her West Village neighborhood, has inspired some interesting art. Illustrated Anna looks pretty comfortable with that joint, don’t you think? Check out one more drawing by AleXsandro Palombo (of Anna’s daughter Bee), after the jump… [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Beats Out Anna Wintour As Style Influencer of the Year

Lady Gaga better watch her back. Her recent win in a Time.com poll about the most influential people of 2010 has meant quite a few snubs for other fashion folk. Among them are Michelle Obama coming in at 14 and La Wintour herself all the way down at 122. If we know anything about Anna, though, she’ll be staging a coup and clawing her way to the top. Who would you back in a style cage match? [The Cut] Keep reading »

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 »
