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 Americas Fund, which supports emerging young designers. To win Wintour’s discerning approval is akin to being granted the keys to the fashion kingdom, and what she says absolutely goes on the pages of Vogue and beyond. So, we thought we’d take a moment to examine Wintour’s personal sartorial musings. How does the Queen of All Clothing actually dress? What can we learn from her style rules?

Michelle Williams Has All The Company She Needs On Her Bedside Table

“Relationships have always seemed mysterious, and therefore worth exploring. I’m single, so it’s still kind of a mystery—a worthwhile mystery, one that I want to be on the scent of. … I’m not lonely, and I think that has a lot to do with what’s on my bedside table rather than what’s in my bed.”

– Michelle Williams talks to Vogue about dating, particularly in the aftermath of Heath Ledger’s death, and being content with being alone. I love this quote, particularly her allusion to books keeping her company. I can so relate to that. Stories can oftentimes be the best company. [E! Online] Keep reading »

Michelle Williams As Marilyn Monroe On The Cover Of Vogue

Michelle Williams plays Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming flick, “My Week With Marilyn,” and so Vogue naturally had her pose in character for their October issue. “I’d go to bed every night with a stack of books next to me,” she says, explaining how she prepared for the role. “I’d fall asleep to movies of her. It was like when you were a kid and you’d put a book under your pillow hoping you’d get it by osmosis.” Wow, I have to say that Michelle does look so much like Marilyn between the hair, the lips, the body, and the stance. However, does anyone else find that the overwhelming resemblance in those areas makes her normally gorgeous eyes and nose feel disconcertingly off? [Vogue]

Carine Roitfeld Thinks Borrowing Clothes Is In Bad Taste

“I think it’s terrible to wear borrowed clothes. I don’t think it’s chic. A couple of years ago, Azzedine Alaïa loaned me a coat that I wore to New York. It was photographed a lot, and everyone wanted to buy it afterward. When I went to return it, Azzedine said, ‘No, you keep it. There’s nothing less chic than a woman who borrows clothes.’”

–Ex French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld in V magazine, on her distaste for borrowing clothing. Whatever. I don’t care whether it’s chic or not; it’s certainly much cheaper. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

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 Anna Wintour on the spoils of power. Wintour also noted that though her powerful position may garner better restaurant seats, she’s also had to deal with cruel portrayals because of her position. Though when pressed, she refused to point to any specific examples (“The Devil Wears Prada,” we’re looking at you.) [Forbes] Keep reading »

Guess Who Got The Coveted September Cover Of Vogue?

September is a big month for magazines — it’s traditionally when the largest (i.e. heaviest!) issues come out, packing in the most advertising pages and helping to pad the bankroll for the rest of the year. Vogue‘s September issue is so major that it even had a documentary made about it. Last year, Halle Berry graced the cover; so who is it this year? Why, it’s the Great Kate! Kate Moss dishes on her new nuptials to Kills frontman Jamie Hince. While, yes, she is a supermodel, it’s nice to see someone over the age of 22 on the cover of a major fashion magazine.
