Tim Gunn: Fashion Diva Anna Wintour Made Employees Carry Her Around (VIDEO)

Tim Gunn: Fashion Diva Anna Wintour Made Employees Carry Her Around'Project Runway' host Tim Gunn appeared on the latest 'Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). While speaking with Jon Stewart, Gunn dished about some of the stranger things he's seen in the fashion world. This included an occasion when 'Vogue' editor Anna Wintour -- the rumored inspiration for the evil boss in 'The Devil Wears Prada' -- had her employees carry her down five flights of stairs.

Gunn witnessed this event at a fashion show in 2006. Wintour was wearing very high heels, and didn't feel like walking around in them anymore. Rather than, say, taking the elevator like a common person -- or even descending the stairs herself, she made her bodyguards lift her in their arms, and carry her from landing to landing, down to the ground floor. The absurdity didn't end there. According to Gunn, Ms. Wintour then had her employees carry her out to her car!

Tim said he wasn't trying to be mean when telling this; rather, he was just relating what he saw with his own eyes. (Although he was mad that Anna tried to get him to lie and retract the story.) But Jon Stewart was less okay with this extremely diva-ish behavior. "I would accept [this from Ms. Wintour]," he said, "if she was hooked up to an iron lung." Zing! Take that, Anna! And really ... though we've all had bad bosses in our lives, being forced to carry your boss because she didn't feel like walking sounds amazingly awful.
