Anna Wintour, Behind The Shades

I just saw the long awaited interview with the elusive Anna Wintour on 60 Minutes, with lots of quotable quotes from Nuclear Wintour herself! Like her or not, there is no denying she holds court in the world of fashion, where she is both praised and vilified.

"I've heard that Miranda Priestly is just a teddy bear compared to Anna Wintour," Safer said.

"It was entertainment. It was not a true rendition of what happens within this magazine," she replied.

"I understand that. But where people made comparisons with you - that coldness, that Anna must not be spoken to when she's on the elevator," Safer pointed out.

"Oh yeah. I heard that. You're not allowed to get in the elevator with me," Wintour said laughing.

"Well, you can get on, but just keep your mouth shut. Is that true?" Safer asked, laughing.

"That’s an exaggeration. I guess in response, I can only say that. I have so many people here, Morley, that have worked with me for 15, 20 years, and, you know, if I'm such a bitch, they must they must really be a glutton for punishment because they’re still here," Wintour said.
