Quote of the Day: Anna Wintour’s Daughter on Why She’s Not in Fashion

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: News,

Bee Shaffer at this year's Met Gala

"I'm 5ft 5in and I have huge boobs, like I'm not going to wear the same thing as Karlie Kloss... I've never been fashion-forward, I'm not that interested in fashion. I kind of wear the same thing all the time or, I know it's cliched to say, but jeans and T-shirts."

- Bee Shaffer, the daughter of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, explains why she never followed in her mom's footsteps (despite looking fabulous at this year's Met Gala - photo featured above).

Quote of the Day: British ‘Vogue’ Editor on Thin Models

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News,

Alexandra Shulman

"People always say 'Why do you have thin models? That's not what real people look like,' but nobody really wants to see a real person looking like a real person on the cover of Vogue... I think Vogue is a magazine that's about fantasy to some extent and dreams, and an escape from real life... People don't want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free... I get fed up with having to deal with the question of why are models thin, that sort of bores me."

- Alexandra Shulman, editor of Vogue UK, explains why you won't be seeing any real-sized models under her reign of the fashion glossy.

There's no word yet as to where Lanphear will be headed next, although she is rumored to have been called in for an interview at The Wall Street Journal. Then again, a humorous Twitter post from Debbie Needleman perhaps suggests that Lanphear may be headed over to join her at T.
