Yesterday while shopping with one of my friends, she mentioned an interview with Anna Wintour that she spotted on Style.com. I was encouraged to view it and last night before bed I did just that. I’m going to start this by saying I am not a big Vogue reader. I know, it’s blasphemy coming from a fashion journalism student. Since Kimye graced the cover, I have not purchased a Vogue and I don’t plan to in the near future. But, watching this video reminded me of how much I admire Anna and how truly funny and endearing she can be.
Not only do the questions come from the mystery man behind the camera, but also her assistants, office workers and also a few famous names. Both supermodel Karlie Kloss and designer Oscar de la Renta made cameos. We also get a quick tour of the Vogue offices while Anna continues through her day. Here are some of my favorite questions and answers:
Interviewer: “Can you write down the one word you wish the fashion industry would stop using?”
Anna holds up a piece of paper with “Journey!!” written across.
Interviewer: If you had to name your absolute biggest fear, what would it be?
Karlie Kloss: Vintage or new?
Karlie Kloss: What would you never ever wear?
Anna: Head to toe black.
Employee: Whats the first thing you notice about someone?
Anna: Their smile.
Interviewer: Whats a book you wish you had written?
Anna: War and Peace.
Employee: What’s the best part of your job?
Anna: The people.
Inerviewer: Favorite dessert?
Anna: Coffee Ice Cream.
Interviewer: Whats the least true rumor about you?
Anna: They’re all true.
