At Least Anna Wintour Has a Healthy Self-Image: Dominatrix Alien Ice Queen

Did you see Anna Wintour on David Letterman last night? It was amazing, because the Vogue editor smiled. And because while she walked on to the stage with her signature sunglasses, she removed them as a courtesy to the late night host. Why should you care about this woman?

Because while she may rule the women’s fashion world, she can single-handedly make a gay male fashion designer’s career. See: Zac Posen. (And she plugged Thom Browne.) Not to mention all the photographers, stylists, and make-up artists her magazine requires to produce a single issue — who are, of course, all gay.

Wintour, currently starring in the apropos The September Issue, comes off less villain-y with Letterman than she does in gossip columns. But you know there’s a soul-eating entity behind that frail, external layer.
