Anna Wintour Can’t Face Herself
Anna Wintour has slapped a lot of faces on magazine covers in her 21 years as editor-in-chief of Vogue.
But when it comes to taking a cold, hard look at herself, she doesn’t always like what she sees.
Wintour, 59, was at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Saturday for the premiere of The September Issue, the R.J. Cutler-directed documentary about the inner workings of the magazine. (Cutler and his crew followed Wintour and the Vogue staff over nine months.)
Wintour was quick to admit that she wasn’t terribly comfortable watching herself on the big screen.
“It’s hard to look at yourself when you’re used to being on the other end of the camera,” Wintour told Us Magazine.
Come on, Anna; the pageboy haircut isn’t that goofy!
Wintour was probably most shaken while witnessing her behavior onscreen. The editorial big-wig—who inspired Meryl Streep’s character in 2006’s The Devil Wears Prada—has a reputation for being somewhat imperious.
Though, if the rumors are true that she’s on her way out the door at Vogue, perhaps she can use the coming spare time to engage in a bit of soul-searching and attitude adjustment.
