Behind the Shades

The dust has settled after the airing of Morley Shafer's highly anticipated interview with Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. It is indisputable that Wintour is an icon, and a mysterious one at that. However, someone was a little less than thrilled...the New York Times fashion critic, Cathy Horyn. Horyn, addresses her qualms on her blog, One the Runway.

"No one would bother disputing the assertion that Wintour is the most powerful person in fashion, and that she exerts her power in a variety of directions, beyond editorial decisions. But what’s the impact of all that power? And, more, what’s the downside? It’s also surprising that CBS didn’t put up a countering view of Wintour’s influence. Grace Coddington and Andre Leon Talley were candid about their boss, saying that she can be intimidating and so forth. But the segment needed outside opinions."
