Anna Wintour Promises Curvy Models

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News

Lara Stone on Vogue UK's January cover Always one to be on top of the latest fashion movements, Anna Wintour has (finally) vowed to use curvier models in Vogue.

The legendary magazine editor has promised to include larger beauties in upcoming issues of the US fashion bible after the success of their January 2010 cover shot image of 25-year-old model , which she hopes will encourage other publishers to avoid skeletal models.

has always been supportive of healthy models and will continue to be so in the future. And I hope that Lara’s success as a model, even though her image does not fit into the existing norm, will inspire the industry to rethink its current preferences.”

The busty beauty - who has a UK size 8 figure - recently admitted she wishes she wasn’t the only curvaceous model: “I’m different because I am fat. It would be nice if I wasn’t the only person with t*ts and an a**e. If I could have the discipline to be super-skinny I would be. I think of dieting, then I eat pizza. I’m a woman, and every woman wants to be thinner - unfortunately.”

Anna Wintour Feels Sorry For Designers

Anna Wintour with Marc JacobsFirst she proves that she laughs, now Anna Wintour says that she feels sorry for upcoming fashion designers.

The Vogue editor, who is regarded as one of the most influential voices in the fashion world, empathizes with new stylists and designers because the fashion market is currently swamped with impressive talent.

“Now is not an easy time to start as a young designer—unless you are very special and dedicated, and not afraid of hard work.”

The magazine chief says that upcoming designers must question their determination and longevity before committing to a fashion career, as it is growing increasingly difficult to become an established name in the industry.

“Talent is obviously important. But you need someone with personality, too, someone who is willing to listen. A designer really needs to spend five or 10 years learning the craft, learning the business. Sometimes you can get someone who has become a huge star overnight, but it is so rare that it works. Sometimes a lack of understanding, a certain naivety about the business can be refreshing, but it so often doesn’t work. People can get carried away with what is new and young and different, but unless you are someone like Marc Jacobs, you should think long and hard. So many are struggling.”


The September Issue Makes History

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News, Women

The September Issue posterWell, it seems as if Anna Wintour’s Letterman stint paid off.

Opening in six New York City screens this past weekend, The September Issue raked in $240,078. With $40,013 per screen, R.J. Cutler’s Vogue documentary nabbed the second-best per-theater average of any 2009 film and the fifth-best documentary opening in history (right behind Paul Provenza’s The Aristocrats).

With Wintour going so far as waiting in a common line to catch the film, let’s hope that it scores more when it opens in limited screens across the US on September 11.

Anna Wintour Laughs on Letterman

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News, Videos, Women


Watching the Late Night with David Letterman show is not one of my pastimes; however, when I read the news that Anna Wintour (a woman who is rarely seen on television, mind you) was scheduled to appear on the talk show, I had my eyes glued to the tube. As you can tell from the clip, it was not something you’d want to miss.

Despite her efforts at the jokes she was obviously fed, I’m shocked that she looks a bit natural when she laughs. Who knew that it was it possible!

Then again, Marc Jacobs did call Anna motherly.
