The September Issue (2009)
Anna Wintour: I think what i often see it that people are frighteened about fashion. Because it scares them or make them feel insecure they just put it down. On the whole people that may say, the meanny things about our world I think that's usually because they feel, in some ways, excluded or, you know, not a part of 'the cool group' so as a result they just mock it.
Anna Wintour: Just because you like to put on a beautiful Carolina Herrera dress or a pair of J Brand blue jeans instead of something basic from K-Mart it doesn't mean that you're a dumb person.
Anna Wintour: There is something about fashion that can make people really nervous.
Journalist: Many people say that you are an 'Ice Woman'...
Anna Wintour: Well, this week it has been very cold that's all I can say.
André Leon Talley: to Vera Wang: First of all... Its been a very bleak week so far its been bleak streak over here in America ! You know what ? It's the famine of beauty ! Its the famine of beauty ! The famine of beauty honey ! My eyes are *starving* for *beauty*!
Journalist: Is there a way to wear furn this winter ?
Anna Wintour: There is always a way to wear fur. Personally I have it on my back !
Tom Florio: Nobody was wearing fur until Anna put it back on the cover of Vogue, back in the early 90s. And she ignited the entire industry. If we get behind something, it sells.
Anna Wintour: [Speaking about Jennifer Garner] She looks pregnant. We need to fix her.
Sally Singer: [Speaking about Grace Coddington] Grace is without question, the greatest living stylist. There's no one better than Grace. There's no one who can make any photographer take more beautiful, more interesting, more romantic, more just stunningly realized pictures than Grace. There's no one better, period. She comes from the idea that fashion is this world of play and make believe. It's as if someone's gone to the dressing up box and found the most wonderful, personal things, and put them together. But it's beautiful.
