ANNA Wintour has a sense of humor, but there are limits. The icy Vogue editrix accepted Meryl Streep's invitation to Tuesday's screening of "The Devil Wears Prada" - which she wore - but avoided posing for a photo with Streep, who plays an icy fashion magazine editrix in the film. Wintour bolted from the Paris Theatre with her entourage as soon as the credits rolled, skipping the dinner and charity auction at the St. Regis. Wintour, whose entourage included boyfriend Shelby Bryant, daughter Bee Shaffer, and Dixon and Arianna Boardman, "thought the movie was very funny," said her spokesman, who also said Wintour never planned on staying for dinner. One insider denied Wintour purposely avoided posing with Streep, who had never met Wintour before publicist Peggy Siegal introduced them. "It was so chaotic, we couldn't set up the shot," said our source. In the chaos were Streep's castmates Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci and Bridget Hall, plus News Corp. president Peter Chernin and 20th Century Fox co-chair Tom Rothman. Martha Stewart, in the elevator after ward, said, "Wow! Who ever had a boss like that?" Silence.
Yeah, it's probably all publicity fluff, but this makes me more intrigued to learn more about Miss Wintour. She's so private, yet so coveted. I can't wait for this movie.
I think out of all those infamously wretched bosses (e.g. Donald Trump, Martha Stewart) I'd gladly take Wintour as a boss. I might hate her with all my being but I wouldn't mind doing it at Vogue. Va-Voom!
