WSJ. Magazine Offers Rare Look at Anna Wintour

You don’t hear much about WSJ., but maybe now, with the magazine getting a rare interview with Anna Wintour for its April issue, that will all change.

The profile explores how the Vogue Editor-in-Chief’s influence is felt beyond the fashion world, along with some of her celebrity friends like Nicole Kidman and Mayor Bloomberg (he paid us to call him a celebrity) discussing what she’s really like.

Deborah Needleman, Editor-in-Chief of WSJ., says that part of what makes  Wintour so interesting is the rarity of a profile such as this. “You have to wonder, how does one person have such a broad influence? She’s basically a global brand.”

Getting Wintour to talk is indeed a great grab by WSJ., especially with her posing for the cover. And she’s even smiling! We think.
