Fashion Week Primer: The Editors

We all vaguely recognize the big models and can’t help but know who the stylish celebs are sitting front row. But the people who matter most during Fashion Week can be a little trickier to spot. We’re talking, of course, about fashion magazine editors. Check out the big players in our handy-dandy chart after the jump. And don’t worry, some of them aren’t as obvious as you-already-know-who.

Anna Wintour Waits In Line Like A Peasant & “The September Issue” Is Insanely Successful

There are certain things that people like Anna Wintour just do not do. Like eat, sleep or go to the bathroom. Waiting in line is one of these things. It just doesn’t happen. Or so we thought. But Wintour was snapped waiting in line to see “The September Issue” [again] over the weekend. And not only was Madame Wintour waiting in line just like a common peasant, she was also wearing jeans, a t-shirt and flats. [Gawker]

Really, there are so many things wrong with this picture that the mind reels. If she weren’t wearing the signature glasses and a bob so severe that it must be intended to dole out paper-cut-esque injuries to those who get too close, we might think that was a clever impersonator. But, apparently, the movie is well worth the wait and it brought in enough viewers to make it the fifth most successful documentary opening, umm, ever. Have you seen it yet!? Keep reading »

Anna Wintour Melts (A Little) On Letterman


Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was on “The Late Show” last night to promote “The September Issue” and she was everything I expected and more. She trotted out in her signature sunglasses, didn’t let Letterman intimidate her in the slightest, and, perhaps unexpectedly, she was funny! She poked fun at Dave’s socks and sincerely seemed to suggest he buy Thom Browne suits, with their cropped pant leg, so he could show them off, and despite a reputation for being completely unapproachable, she was actually quite self-deprecating. Check out the interview above! Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Anna Wintour Is The New Gloria Steinem

“She’s been doing this for so long, surrounded by men. [...] There’s absolutely a feminist aspect to her. I think a lot of the attacks against her are misogynist. Men in business are totally cutthroat and nobody says bad things about them for it.”

Style Buzz: Grace Comes Clean And “The Beautiful Life” Gets More Gorgeous Guest Stars

  • Grace Coddington creative director of Vogue finally up and comes out with it—sometimes she can’t freakin’ stand Anna. [WWD]
  • AnOther Magazine‘s September issue has four covers: Kate Moss and Katie Holmes, shot by Craig McDean, and Vanessa Paradis and Natalie Portman, shot by none other than Hedi Slimane. [Design Scene] Love how slicked-back hair on Katie and Natalie equals “edgy.”
  • The Sundance Channel is bringing back “Full Frontal Fashion.” [WWD] We kinda sorta missed it.

    Quick Pic: Sienna Miller And Anna Wintour Let Bygones Be Bygones

    Despite the fact that there are entire scenes in “The September Issue” which involve Anna and her cronies criticizing Sienna for being “toothy” (among other flaws) and plotting ways to Photoshop her image for the cover, last night at the premiere they buddied up for a pap shot on the red carpet. Note: Sienna is not flashing her famous grin. [8/19/09, NYC] Keep reading »

    The Queen Of Queens? Anna To Make Awkward Store Appearance

    So, we are already cringing at thoughts of Vogue editor and fashion royal Anna Wintour addressing the masses at Macy’s in the New York borough of Queens, of all places. The collision of these two worlds is guaranteed to be the stuff good reality shows are made of. (Too bad they’re no longer filming the soon-to-be released documentary “The September Issue.”) Wintour will be joined by designer and “Project Runway” host Michael Kors on September 10 at the department store, where the duo will be on hand to showcase fall trends and sign t-shirts for the first 50 folks in line. The appearance kicks off the city-wide launch of Fashion’s Night Out, a multi-day “shopping” event meant to jump-start fall retail sales across the country. [Racked]

    Question is, will Wintour pull a Cintra Wilson and write about how disturbingly “middle-class” Macy’s is in her next editor’s letter? Only time will tell. Keep reading »

    Anna Wintour Will Appear On “Letterman”!

    Frosty Vogue editrix-in-chief Anna Wintour is slated to yuk it up with David Letterman on his late night show. Why would her Highness deign to gift Dave with her presence? To promote “The September Issue,” a new documentary that chronicles Wintour’s preparations for the massive September 2007 issue of Vogue, following the fashion legend as her team of editors brainstorm, style shoots, and meet with designers.

    Could Letterman bring out Wintour’s supposed fun, coquettish side? If he can’t do it, no one can. Set your TiVos for Monday, August 24. [The Cut]

    What Does This Whole “Fashion’s Night Out” Thing Mean Anyway?

    If Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg get their way, there will be no more sale racks to sift through for deals. But it’s a bit more complicated than that, as The Wall Street Journal explains. What is “Fashion’s Night Out”? Keep reading »
