Vera Wang used to be a competitive figure skater. And she was also up for EIC for US Vogue in 1987… but Anna Wintour got the post. :)
When I found out that Nicki Minaj was featured in US Vogue March 2012… WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED? After all, she was sitting next to Anna five months ago in Carolina Herrera S/S 2012. By the sound of the editorial’s title ‘True Colors’, it must be a color explosion!!!
“You can make a film in Hollywood without Steven Spielberg’s blessing, and you can publish software in Silicon Valley without Bill Gates’s blessing, but it’s pretty clear to me you can’t succeed in the fashion industry without Anna Wintour’s blessing.”

Adele has one of the most wonderful and unique voices in the music business today. I was very happy when she won ‘Best New Artist’ in the Grammy Awards three years ago (styled no other than Anna Wintour herself!!!) as it was the heyday of my ‘Chasing Pavements’ phase. Plus points for having this body image that doesn’t distract from her musicality and artistry (simply put, not a skinny bitch!).
I love the comment in YouTube which has the most number of thumbs-up:
I’m a long haired, self confessed apathetic metalhead in a relationship with the girl of my dreams! yet this song still hit me right into the heart…. Why I’m listening to this, as said metalhead, is unclear, but WOW! ‘nuff said!
Music really knows no boundaries. If it hits you, it hits you; no matter how phenotypically different you are from whatever the song or the singer’s image is. =D
