Ho ho ho. Even though Miss Wintour has a muck-raking tell-all book and film (The Devil Wears Prada) devoted to her, not to mention the somewhat more flattering documentary The September Issue to boost her personal mythology, we all know that you’re no one in showbiz until you’ve had a few drag queens organize a lookalike contest based on you.
Which is why we got quite excited when we saw these pics. Then we read the story which deflated us a teeny bit. Yep. Protesters took to the Piazza Oberdan in Milan prior to the Gucci runway show, wearing wigs, sunglasses and t-shirts that said “I Will Only Stay 3 Days” in order to display their dissatisfaction at La Wintour's Milan mini-break. Although it entertained the assembled press and buyers, we're over this story. It won’t make any difference girls. And those wigs aren’t even the right length. Come on.
This Drag Queen Wintour-off is so obvious, we are wondering why no one has done it before. Somebody get us the number for Jodie Harsh (and a reservation at Bistroteque). Now that would be a gallery of photos we'd love to see on Grazia Daily...
