Anna Wintour Is an O.G. Fashion Troll

Anna Wintour did something a little unusual last week at the White House state dinner: she reached deep into her no doubt capacious closet, and fished out a Chanel haute couture gown she last publicly wore three years ago. To another high-profile event — the Met Ball, which she organizes. That was far from the Vogue editor-in-chief's first incursion into the normal-person practice of outfit repeating. In fact, she's been doing it for years. Often she repeats an outfit several times in one season, but sometimes her repeats are a little more ambitious. Why, just last month, Wintour wore a five-year-old dress to an event for the Human Rights Campaign. Why would someone who receives a rumored annual clothing budget of $200,000 as part of her compensation package from Condé Nast bother outfit-repeating? Fucking Christ, people, she's Anna Wintour. She can wear whatever the hell she wants. If she never wants to take off her favorite Prada snakeskin coat ever, ever, ever again, she doesn't have to. Besides, I bet she really enjoys trolling us all.

Anna Wintour's most frequently repeated accessory by far, however, is her favorite pair of shoes, which she wears with all manner of outfits, practically year-round. Her taupe leather low-heeled Manolo Blahnik sandals have been a ubiquitous part of her wardrobe for nearly two decades. Last year, Blahnik told the press he has made several personalized lasts of Wintour's feet just so she can re-order these sandals. Center photo: September 14, 2006.
