If you think Madonna is going to great lengths to suck the youth out of unsuspecting souls, Anna Wintour is having a peak “Hold my beer” moment. Sure, there are plenty of stodgy editors who have jumped ship at Conde Nast, but Anna just keeps gaining power. Her latest strategy is a video series For Vogue where she answers questions from peasants, er, readers. The latest chapter had someone asking Anna what she thought about the Kardashians and their style. Surprisingly, Anna didn’t show how she felt by opening the window to her office and jumping out of it.
HuffPo says that Anna mainly took the question as an opportunity to ignore the fashion aspect and fawn over how Kris Jenner and her “creative genius” was able to build an empire out of jack shit. As for fashion, well, let’s just see Exhibit A:
Anna held that photo up, barfed in the vintage Chanel trash can she keeps by her desk, and then barked at an intern to clean it up and pick up her Starbucks in five minutes or else she would be fired. I’m only kidding. It was three minutes. Actually, Anna responded to the question with this:
“You have to admire how they have created an empire through their personalities and the creative genius of their mother. And … how … they live the way they do. I can’t possibly understand or fathom living so much in the public eye, but obviously it works.”
I’m pretty sure Kim Kardashian would actually become a nun to get on the cover of Vogue again, so that shady-ass “how…they live the way they do” has got to sting! Also, snaps for Anna being able to keep a straight face, and I’m sure it was a reminder to her to never take those damn sunglasses off because her eyes were likely rolling all the way to New Jersey when she fielded that question. Anna finally got around to admitting that Kim at least no longer looks like Kitson threw up on her when she goes out:
“Kim, of all of them, have possibly changed the most. I personally admire the way that she has become a little bit more minimal, in the way that she’s dressing ― a lit bit more covered.”
I guess Anna blocked out the terrifying recent memory of this (so did we all):
She also talked about how Kendall Jenner is at least a legit model and shows interest only in modeling compared to her fame-ho sisters. Anna then compared Kendall to Linda Evangelista, and I don’t know who spontaneously combusted first: Anna for somehow being able to pay someone a compliment, Kendall at being compared to THEE Linda Evangelista, or poor Linda for being compared to someone Naomi Campbell appears ready to cut down with her laser eyes.
