Hilarity of the Moment: Wintour in PCD Show? Don't Think So
André Leon Talley doesn't look very happy or comfortable....That's because he's at L.A Fashion Week, can't leave until tomorrow, is probably sweating his ass off in that crocodile coat he's got on, and must endure it all without his boss and BFF Anna Wintour, who presumably sent him. She's obviously not there because it's L.A. Fashion Week (whatever THAT is), the highlights of which include The Hills' Lauren Conrad's show, which was today, and the Pussycat Dolls' show of their new lingerie line on Thursday. Could you imagine La Wintour in L.A? At a Pussycat Dolls show? Pale and bling-less? Loosening up her buttons, babe? Wearing her sunglasses because she actually needs them?
-"André Leon Talley Does L.A. Fashion Week and Isn't Happy About It," New York Magazine's The Cut
This article from New York Magazine just made me laugh. For those who don't know, L.A. Fashion Week (now marketed as L.A. Fashion Month) started a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, this local fashion event gets eclipsed by the Big Three shows of New York, Milan, and Paris.
It just so happens that Vogue editor-at-large, André Leon Talley, went to the shows. Being the good American that he is, Talley attended for the sake of publicity--to put a little bright light to deserving talents of dear Los Angeles. But as New York Magazine reported, he wasn't very pleased with what he saw. I'm not sure what sort of "disappointments" were thrown at him during the week, but clearly New York's shows were his cup of tea.
But I'm more interested in how Anna Wintour, Vogue's editrix-in-chief, would have handled the situation. Maybe her signature pursing of the lips here, and probably schlumpy looks there. Even more curious, I'd love to see her in the Pussycat Dolls' show. Whoa there hot mama!
