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!

Chris Colfer on the Whirlwind World of 'Glee'

Chris Colfer as Kurt in 'Glee'If there is any character amongst the kids on 'Glee' that's poised for a breakout, it's Kurt Hummel, mainly because of the confident acting of Chris Colfer.

A self-professed theater nerd, the 19-year-old Colfer has been having a ball playing Kurt; but along with all the fabulousness, he's also been doing a good job of making Kurt a multi-dimensional character in his limited screen time.

Colfer is featured in tonight's episode, 'Home,' where Kurt schemes to get closer to Finn by pairing up his single father Burt (played by Mike O'Malley) and Finn's mother. The results backfire a bit, pointing out yet again the difficulties Kurt has of being the gay, musical-theater-loving son of a guy who's more comfortable talking about Tim Tebow than Stephen Sondheim.

Colfer sat down with me last week to talk about the whirlwind that's been 'Glee's' first year, going to visit Oprah and the White House, if he's afraid of a backlash, and the weirdest place he's seen the paparazzi.

Tina Fey Talks to Vogue About Clothes, Sarah Palin, and Chicken McNuggets

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 15th 2010 4:00PM
VogueVogue is a fashion magazine, so you know that this Tina Fey interview in the new issue is going to focus a lot on clothes, hair, and weight, but that doesn't mean that there isn't a lot of good stuff in it for fans of Fey and '30 Rock.'

What I like most about the interview is that even though she's doing poses in front of the New York City skyline and having people fuss over her clothing and her hair, you still get a strong sense of the nerd girl inside of Fey. In the video diary of the photo shoot (after the jump), Fey talks about how it's funny that the interview for the shoot is being held in the former bathroom of a restaurant, and in the print interview you can tell that while she finds all of it fun, she knows it's pretty silly, too.

She also talks about how she was treated differently by people over her Sarah Palin impersonation when men like Dana Carvey (who did Bush) weren't, and discusses everything from the Emmys to Rosemary Clooney to Chicken McNuggets.

Gushing about Glee

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 19th 2010 3:00PM
Flush from winning the Golden Globe as Best TV Show - Musical or Comedy, Glee creator Ryan Murphy was in a jolly mood when confronted by the media. Can you blame the guy? Glee is definitely the success story of 2009, the little show that could. A smart, sassy high school musical that's become a cultural phenomenon. If I were Ryan Murphy, I'd be singing and dancing and spilling my guts, too. If you prefer being totally surprised and abhor spoilers -- STOP READING NOW.

What You Missed Last Night: Morley Safer is not impressed by the fashion world

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2009 2:44PM
60 MinutesI don't usually write about the world of high fashion, but I was interested in the interview with Anna Wintour on 60 Minutes last night. For one, she's a mysterious women we only hear about from other people. Two, The Devil Wears Prada is on TV every single week and I have to watch it whenever it's on. The best part of this piece is the really funny, sarcastic digs that Morley Safer gets in about this fashion world.

(The video is after the jump because it's one of those videos that plays automatically.)

New America's Next Top Model promo reminds me why I love this show

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 5th 2008 11:25AM
antm cycle 11 promoI love advertisements. Especially since the use of PhotoShop has become so widespread, ads and pictures in magazines have become less and less interested in reality, and more interested in the general idea of what an image is.

For instance, the ad for Cycle 11 of America's Next Top Model featured in the September issue of Vogue doesn't look like a picture of Tyra Banks surrounded by fashionista wannabes, so much as the idea of Tyra Banks surrounded by fashionista wannabes ... as imagined by an unholy union of Pixar artists and caricature-drawing carnies after a 72-hour absinthe and 'shroom binge that featured Jesus Christ Superstar stuck on a loop in the DVD player.

olsens badgley mischkaAshley and Mary-Kate Olsen, a.k.a. "Michelle" on Full House, have transformed themselves into glamour girls. They're the faces of the Badgley Mischka ad campaign. Photos of the twins in expensive gowns will appear in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, and InStyle magazines this Spring. Mark Badgley and James Mischka, creators of the fashion line, said the Olsen twins represent the edgy look they're going for. "They have an amazing sense of fashion and individuality that intrigued us," said the fashion duo in a statement. The New York Times coined their style as "Bobo", or Bohemian Bourgeois, where they pile on a bunch of clothes that don't match, but cost a bundle.
