In his new book Gunn's Golden Rules, Project Runway's Tim Gunn shares an anecdote about the famous Vogue editor-in-chief and how she left a 2006 Peter Som show, being carried by bodyguards of course:
"I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won't-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna would deign to get on. She wasn't there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs. The bodyguards had made a fireman's lock and were racing her from landing to landing. She was sitting on their crossed arms.. I ran to the window to see if they would put her down on the sidewalk or carry her to the car like that. They carried her to the car. And I thought: I will never forget this."And neither will we. Luckily after The September Issue let us in to the heart of Vogue the world saw a different side of Anna (The Devil Wears Prada painted an interesting image of the editor) and to be frank, it's going to take a lot more than this to shock fashion devotees or make us love her any less.
