NY mag's fashion blog The Cut ran into the Vogue editrix Wintour at the National Book Awards this week. They politely (we assume!) asked her about the rumors that she might retire. They are (sort of) substantive rumors and it's a question about her job, not her personal life, so you'd think that she'd respond as courteously as she could. Except, no she didn't. She gave 'em the ol' heave-ho:
The Cut: There have been some rumors, and we were wondering if you had plans for retirement. Anna Wintour: I'm so sorry, I think that's an extremely rude question. Leave me alone. The Cut: May we ask what you would do if you did retire? Anna Wintour: No. Just go away. The Cut: Okay, thank you, enjoy your dinner.
