Serving For the Match: Anna Wintour and Roger Federer


In the shadow of the U.S. Open, which begins on Monday, and New York Spring 2008 Fashion Week, which begins the day after Labor Day, Vogue Editrix Anna Wintour and Men’s Vogue EIC Jay Fielden provided a welcome ”study break” for the harrowed designers in the form of the odds-on favorite to win the competition. Razor-bobbed Anna Wintour, who plays tennis every morning as part of her regimen, served up former Men’s Vogue coverboy Roger Federer last night at the W. From New York’s Daily Intelligencer:

”…Federer was there with his girlfriend, Mirka Vavrinec, but he was Anna Wintour’s man for the night; she took him on her arm and flirtatiously accompanied him around the room, introducing him to friends like Diane Von Furstenberg, Vera Wang, and Oscar de la Renta. We asked Miss Anna about her favorite tennis couture this season. ‘Anything that Roger wears,’ she replied with a girlish giggle.”

Match point.
