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.

Thankfully, there are several promising movies coming out this week, and they're a great way to distract yourself from the fact that beach visits and hungover work days will quickly become a ghost of your past.

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.

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.
