Earlier this week, I tweeted this from New York City:
“ANNA effing WINTOUR. That’s who we chatted with briefly yesterday at The Met. No word of a lie. Epic!!”
Well, here’s the photographic evidence. I was completely starstruck during our brief encounter, but managed to respond coherently when Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, asked me how I was (just dandy!), whether I’d enjoyed the Savage Beauty exhibition (OMG, yes), and whether I work in fashion (no, I…blog).
Andrew Bolton, the curator of the exhibit was on hand as well, and both were signing copies of Savage Beauty, the Alexander McQueen exhibition catalogue. In fact, that’s T’s copy he’s signing in the photo below.
By the time T and I had gotten through the exhibit and had our books signed, we’d been at The Met for over 7 hours, mostly in line-ups and lacking any food or drink. But it was all worth it!
