The Crawford-Gerber Malibu mansion is filled with the wails from Miss Kaia Gerber today, because Anna Wintour has gone and delayed her chances of running the likes of Gigi Hadid off the cover of Vogue for two more years. There’s a push in the fashion community to shy away from using 12-year-olds on stilts in fashion shoots because there are a lot of creeps loitering around set, and it’s strange to expect someone who just finished watching Dora to wear this season’s Balenciaga. Being beautiful will no longer get you out of homeroom and smelly high school gym classes. You’re going to have to wait to graduate before you’re paid to get passive aggressive comments from NYC fashion editors! Continue reading
For months now, we’ve all heard the rumor that Anna Wintour is leaving Condé Nast as artistic director, and Vogue as editor-in-chief after 30 years. Anna was so done at Vogue that she reportedly let Beyoncé fully art direct the cover of the September issue. You could practically hear the intern at Vogue prying Anna’s name off the door. Condé Nast has been denying that Anna is going anywhere ever since the rumor started. And I guess the talk about Beyoncé having control over the September cover has Condé Nast on damage control duty again, because they’ve issued another denial.
Yesterday Condé Nast CEO Bob Sauerberg shot down the Anna Wintour rumors in two tweets:
"…in her role as @voguemagazine editor-in-chief and artistic director of Condé Nast." 2/2
— Condé Nast (@CondeNast) July 31, 2018
This follows British Vogue’s claim that it’s “categorically false” that Anna is leaving and is being replaced by British Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful. So there you have it, don’t get too comfortable, Beyoncé – it’s only your gig for a month, and then it’s back to the beyhive. Because apparently Anna is there for the long-haul. Or at least that’s what I’m taking from Bob’s use of the word “indefinitely.” He could have also said “forever.” There’s something about Anna’s unchanging appearance that leads me to believe she’ll be barking at a staff of cockroaches to bring her the most cutting-edge post-apocalyptic couture long after the world ends.
Unlike some famous people who will, I don’t know – clomp out of the house in disgusting sweaty plastic heels – Beyoncé is very protective of her image and always has to project Beyoncé-levels of perfect. So it should come as no surprise that Beyoncé reportedly pushed Anna Wintour out of the driver’s seat and fully taken the wheel of her rumored upcoming Vogue cover.
There’s been rumors for the past couple of months that Anna Wintour’s time as editor-in-chief of Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast have an expiriation date. It would make sense to me if Anna’s farewell issue featured herself on the cover. But since an emotionless face, cold eyes, and wig-like hair is really more on brand for Department Store Mannequin Monthly, the star of the September issue is reportedly going to be Beyoncé.
The Vogue interns got a brief moment of mercy this year when they found out Anna Wintour wouldn’t be sending them through the wood chipper for seating her next to Pimp Mama Kris. Instead, it’s the 2018 Met Gala co-chair, Amal Clooney, who is making everyone at the Haus of Winter and Tom Ford angrily eat carbs because she didn’t wear a Tom Ford dress on the Met Gala red carpet like they thought she would.

You can always be sure of three things at the Met Gala: some bitches are going to completely disregard the theme, Anna Wintour (pics of her below) will wince her way down the red carpet as though she’s running a list of what interns she’s going to sacrifice for inviting one too many a-Kardashian to her big night, and the Olsen twins will scowl their way down…as though photographers are shouting at them the names of all their straight-to-VHS movies from the 90s. Nobody disappointed last night!
Even though last night’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen arrived looking like their invitation said the theme was “Coachella Hair and Solstice Party Muumuus.” People says Mary-Kate rocked the all-black get-up, which I guess is a nod to a nun’s habit? Ashley’s multicolored fashion is a nod to the divorcee seeking forgiveness from the nun? Or maybe she just got her events confused and was hoping the Sorting Hat would take one look at her and let her join Harry, Hermione, and Ron in Gryffindor?
The pair of Rachel Zoe horcruxes rocked Stephen Webster jewelry, and Vogue notes the boho lewk is actually vintage Paco Rabanne. The twins typically stay out of the limelight, and the Met Gala is usually the one night out of the year they go out in public and try to teach Posh Spice how a veteran is really supposed to serve pained expression to the paparazzi. ‘Til next year’s theme, which is…aw, who cares. The Olsen invitation will still read “Coachella Hair and Solstice Party Muumuus.”
