WATCH Anna Wintour reveal all

18 May 2009

Ever since the cameras trailed Anna Wintour around the shows this season, the fashion world's been buzzing about her spill-all documentary for a New York high-brow news programme, 60 Minutes. Would she defy that ‘Nuclear Wintour' label? Would her staff dish on what she's really like to work with? What would the designers say about her? And would her offices really resemble The Devil Wears Prada set? (Short answer, yes). Well, looks like Anna's managed to remain serene and calm despite cameras being pointed at her 24/7, deftly brushing off descriptions of her as ‘Peaches and cream with a touch of arsenic...'  In fact, call us crazy, but we reckon you even see a touch of the insecure, emotional Anna when she talks about failing academically and living in the shadow of her uber-successful and equally ‘chilly' journalist father, Charles Wintour. But her staff tell a different story. ‘She's like a doctor when she's looking at your work,' says André Leon Talley. ‘It's like a medical analysis.' The designers seem to revere her just as much. Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano and Nicolas Ghesquière of Balenciaga talk about Anna's influence on their collections. Anyway, that's enough from us. Make a cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy all 13 minutes of the Anna Wintour interview right here. It's one of the few times you're going to see her without sunglasses, after all...
