Well, it seems as if Anna Wintour’s Letterman stint paid off. Opening in six New York City screens this past weekend, The September Issue raked in $240,078. With $40,013 per screen, R.J.

With Wintour going so far as waiting in a common line to catch the film, let’s hope that it …

Fashion Police: Avril Lavigne’s Anti-Prom

Despite running into some possible marital problems, celebrity perfumer and fashion designer Avril Lavigne turned heads in the Hamptons.
