A Brief Look at WSJ. Magazine’s Anna Wintour Profile

That Anna Wintour profile in WSJ. FishbowlNY told you about a couple days ago is now available online, and it doesn’t disappoint. As we mentioned, it’s jam packed with celebrities talking about how much they love the fashion icon.

There’s Justin Timberlake getting deep (“she understands fashion is a state of mind”), Roger Federer stating that he’d work for her, Michael Bloomberg agreeing to all things Wintour (“She’s not a person you want to say no to”), and S.I. Newhouse proclaiming Vogue Condé Nast’s most profitable magazine.

Indeed, the piece offers plenty of praise for Wintour. However, if there’s a topic the writer and even Wintour can’t boast about, it’s Posh, Baby, Ginger, Scary and Sporty. “I’m not terribly proud of putting the Spice Girls on the cover,” she admits at one point.

No matter what you think of her, at least she knows that.
