Today Queen Elizabeth II made a surprise visit to London Fashion Week, attending a runway show alongside Anna Wintour. She wore a baby blue suit paired with black gloves; she must have left her own sunglasses at home. At Buckingham Palace. Where she lives. Because she is the queen.
Sad news, friends and fellow media rubberneckers: Bravo has canned All That Glitters, their drama about the ’80s-era rise to prominence of Tina Brown and Anna Wintour in the most glorious of Condé Nast glory days.
American Vogue is throwing their own TED conference of sorts in October titled “The Forces of Fashion.” Anna Wintour stresses the event will be “intimate” which isn’t surprising considering tickets cost a whopping $3,000. Wouldn’t want those H&M-clad peasants getting in, would we?
Never question Anna Wintour’s ability to stoop to the highest heights of pettiness when it comes to the Met Gala.
Move over, other babies, because there’s a new boss baby in town. WWD reports the happy news that Anna Wintour’s daughter-in-law Lizzy and son Charlie Shaffer have welcomed a baby named Caroline, a name befitting the future queen of New York. Caroline was born Tuesday, which means she is three days old and already…
Believe it or not—yes.
Today, President-Elect Donald Trump met with top editors at Condé Nast, several of whom have taken extremely adversarial stances against Trump (Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, who coined the term “short-fingered vulgarian,” perhaps most of all), in an off-the-record meeting.
On Tuesday, Condé Nast Chief Executive Bob Sauerberg announced that the media company is dividing into five groups—business, editorial, research, technology, and creative—that will take priority over individual brands, with each group working under one leader (Anna Wintour will continue to serve as artistic director), …
The Clinton campaign, long an ally of New York City’s fashion elite, held a runway show-cum-fundraiser on Tuesday night co-hosted by Anna Wintour, Chelsea Clinton and Huma Abedin. Tickets went from $100 to $25,000 to see, as the New York Times cuttingly phrased it, “what turned out to be a parade of fancy T-shirts.”

Amy Schumer is on the cover of Vogue’s July issue, and the accompanying profile is, in typical Vogue cover story fashion, not great!
Anna “The Boss” Wintour and daughter Bee Shaffer have arrived at the ball. Anna’s wearing Chanel Spring 2016 couture. I’m wearing argyle tights I got at Target like seven years ago. Who wore it better?
The White House Correspondents Dinner over the weekend might have done a fine job for #nerdprom but, apart from Our Lady Michelle Obama, it was just a trial run for the Met Gala, which is the prom that only popular people are invited to, multiplied by a debutante ball. At the Met Gala, you’re not allowed to fuck…
The new Vogue documentary The First Monday in May has premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and Page Six has reported CollegeHumor founder Ricky van Veen to be the mystery Met Ball guest who irked La Wintour in the film’s trailer.
Anna Wintour went on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday night and, like a Chanel-patterned butterfly nudging itself out of its soft cocoon, made herself vulnerable unto the world with one strangely humanizing tale about getting lost in the basement of Madison Square Garden.
Khloe Kardashian appeared on The Late Late Show Tuesday night and was asked for her thoughts on FX’s American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson. After calling it“phenomenal” and saying she was “grateful” for the way her father, Robert Kardashian, was portrayed, Khloe told host James Corden FX got a few of the…
Honestly, if Vogue wants to keep filming documentaries about itself, that is totally fine with me—especially since the trailer for The First Monday in May, a documentary about last year’s Met Ball, portends another juicy, stressful behind-the-scenes saga a la The September Issue.
The latest issue of Vogue includes a spread called “Here’s What Happens When Supermodels Kendall, Gigi, and Karlie Go to Silicon Valley.” As far as I can tell, nothing happens, except maybe Grace Coddington weeping a river of relief 5,000 miles away that she has finally washed her hands of this whole operation.
Was 2015 a good year for diversity in fashion magazines? Is it ever? The needle moves ever so sluggishly toward progression each year, but this wasn’t the best in terms of inclusion. Which is why Vogue insists that it’s on a mission to push forward.
The annual British Fashion Awards took place last night at London’s Coliseum, and it was a flurry of pursed lips, restrained ensembles, and fawning praise for the British fashion “family,” which I am imagining as the kind of family that doesn’t like to give hugs and makes everyone figure out their own dinner.
