Last night, Vogue editor Anna Wintour stopped by “Late Show with David Letterman” to discuss the upcoming Vogue-centric documentary The September Issue and all the press Wintour has been getting recently in advance of the film.
Wintour was charming, funny and engaging, even making light of Maureen Dowd’s description of her as an alien, among other things:
“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?”
Wintour was endearing, which is nothing less than we would expect. She may be a difficult boss to work for, but that’s just part of what makes her such a fascinating character. We would imagine that she only pulls out the charm when she wants to, which makes us feel like part of an exclusive club. Having been Wintour fans for a while, we love her a little bit more now.
What did you think about her Letterman appearance?
