Under ‘cover’:

I suppose one positive thing that can be said about Sunday’s ‘Fashions of the Times’, (other than its healthy size) is that they thankfully didn’t choose Sarah Jessica Parker to grace the cover. The August cover of Vogue featuring the Sex and the City star was one of the worst yet. She may be entertaining, and a fashion plate, but she does not belong on the cover of Vogue, in my opinion.

And though they did use pop tart, Britney Spears (ugh!), at least she was rendered unrecognizable thanks to hair, make-up, styling, and black and white photography courtesy Ellen von Unwerth. That said, do you mean to tell me they couldn’t do any ‘better’ for their ’60th anniversary issue’?

Is Anna Anorexic?

And speaking of the Sunday New York Times, in the “Possessed” column of the ‘Style’ section, there was an article about the desk in Anna Wintour’s office. I kept searching for evidence that she actually eats those hamburgers and fatty, sugary confections I’m always reading about. Is it her, or her P.R. person who wants us to believe she is not anorexic? It seems that every time a newspaper records spotting her (with our without Shelby Bryan) they are relating it to what she’s eating, and it’s always a calorie laden snack. Her beautifully bare boned, skinny desk bore no witness to anything remotely resembling that sort of thing. In any event, her office looked like one would expect it to look- neat, slim, elegant, ‘perfect’- just like her fashion persona.
