The Utterances Of, And About, Anna WintourS

The 60 Minutes profile on Vogue editor Anna Wintour runs this Sunday. The publicity push is underway! We've learned who gets quoted in the upcoming segment—everyone else is screwed and unimportant:

The Quoted Ones:
Andre Leon Talley – Editor at Large.
Grace Coddington – Creative Director.
Designers: Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, Nicholas Ghesquiere.
And Bernard Arnault, Chairman of LVMH.

If you thought you might be quoted, but you're not on this list: Sorry. Take heart, though. There's much more to learn about Anna in the last two days!

  • Anna reveals why she wears sunglasses: "I can sit in a show and if I am bored out of my mind, nobody will notice . . . At this point, they have become, really, armor." That's thoroughly unsurprising.
  • Anna gave a public interview at the 92nd St. Y this week which cause fashionistas to pass out in paroxysms of overwhelmedness just by its mere existence! PETA protested her for being a fur-wearing murderess, but she totally shrugged it off to the delight of the crowd!
  • Here's a fairly complete transcript of the the interview. Let's pull out one interesting bit, shall we?
    Q: You've said it's time to move on from a job when you get too angry. Are you getting to the point where you're thinking about other options?
    A: Well, mostly I'm thinking about the next day. I think that I have the best job in the entire world. To be honest, I don't think I'd be very good at anything else!
    Anna I think you would be a great schoolmarm or foreign policy analyst so don't give up, ever!

Here's the preview clip of her 60 Minutes appearance. In which she is in charge:
