"been there done that messed around, I'm having fun don't put me down"

Today I enjoyed a cup of coffee and the Elle September issue. Coincidence or not? Yesterday's post was about another September issue: Vogue 2006. Few hours after that was up, Anna Wintour appeared on Letterman. Let's make it one more for the search engines on this subject, shall we?

Oh, Anna! I wish I were that much of a friends with Vogue's Anna Wintour. Brr. The ice queen, a woman who affords wasting significant amounts of cash until the results meet her expectations, is she even human? Well, apparently... yes:

"I read in The New York Times this week that I'm an ice queen, I'm the Sun King, I'm an alien fleeing from District 9 and I'm a dominatrix," she said. "So I reckon that makes me a lukewarm royalty with a whip from out of space. What do you think?"

I am so not going to turn this into a socialite post, but really she was FUNNY. Funny in that way that Victoria Beckham appears to be in videos and on interviews. Funny, nothing you would expect to actually come from none of these ladies. Because it's an unwritten policy here on SFT not to feature public persons or celebrities unless. Just models in fashion ads or editorials. Why? Well, that is easy: because other people's lives, what they do, stop doing, have for breakfast and so on is not-our-business. End of story.

With Anna Wintour though, it's different. That woman embodies fashion. From appearance, trademarks (furs, glasses, haircut), to her job&influence, her entire life MEANS fashion.
Of course, savory words come from The Moment, as per usual. I especially like the next one, and only yesterday I suggested to listen to it: It’s Vogue, O.K.? Please, let’s lift it.”

Also, while everybody on the planet cuts down on... anything possible, so does Vogue, featuring lower-cost clothing items. Lower as an Oscar de la Renta dress can go: under $2,000 (!!!). Surely, Anna will not - I repeat: will not - give up her suite at the Paris Ritz, her chauffeured Mercedes sedans and her entourage of 10 that costs a quarter of a mill. I mean why should she, I don't get it. Would you do it, in her place, if you had to keep up a certain profile and afford it? I don't think so.
Also, admittedly, I did over-listen to this particular La Roux song entitled Bulletproof but I think it fits today's subject like a glove. A highly fashionable glove, that is.

Sweet treats,
