Once a year the Metropolitan Museum of Art holds a gala to raise money for the Costume Institute and to unveil the latest fashion exhibition. This year’s exhibit is dedicated to Punk: Chaos to Couture, and will be attended by many A-Lister’s from the fashion and entertainment communities.  As photos hit the web I’ll be posting more entries. Stay tuned….

Anna’s Change of Face.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Anna Wintour has one posture that is photographed day in and day out. If you’re a true Glamour Girl, you know EXATLY which posture that would be: dark shades on (doesn’t matter if it’s day or night), arms crossed, legs crossed and a look that says: “Don’t even think of talking to me!”

Low and behold I came across this lovely photo of Ms. Wintour looking almost happy. I couldn’t help but think: Good for you Anna-it must feel great to have a change of face. You seem almost …(m.m.m.m.m. what’s the word I am looking for here) Ah, yes-Approachable!

Anna Wintour has Gone ECO!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Anna Wintour has gone Eco-“friendly.” Now uttering the word “friendly” in any relative vicinity of Ms. Wintour might be a bit of a stretch….But, I am here to tell you Glamour Girls that Anna has thoroughly embraced the concept of Saving the Earth by using environmentally friendly techniques to make fashion…(Well, at least for the November 2010 issue that is). Now don’t go overboard and envision Anna’s minions weaving straw hats and hemp skirts in some dark corner at Vogue but instead Anna does what she does BEST….she calls on her A-Team of chemically free, violence free, solar powered, gold recycled fashion designers….Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Stella McCartney and Vera Wang (Any of those names ring a bell? Thought So! ) Rest assured- all this “Saving the Earth” comes at a price… (Remember this is Anna at the helm) and honey it isn’t cheap. All the items featured in the November issue run anywhere between $995.00 to $2,995.00.  Hey, Saving the Earth costs. But just think how much friendlier Anna will be while saving the environment…

P.S. Should Anyone catch Anna hugging a tree ..CALL ME!

Anna Wintour is a GIVER!

Posted By: Terri

Check your calendar…Is it Christmas ? I keep scratching my head trying to think of a reason why Anna Wintour would be digging into the Vogue Archives and giving 5 prints with 30 copies each-complete with  stamp and letter of authenticity signed by her “Vogueness” Ms. Wintour, for sale on the uber chic website Net-a-porter.???? 

 Is Anna ill and deciding to be more charitable before her time is up?  Is the downsized economy  hitting magazine sales and subscriptions are suffering?? Was Anna a possible client of Bernie Madoff???  Whatever the reason, these archives are fashionable, glamorous and a true collector item. Log onto www.net-a-porter.com

And to think…  Anna did this for us- so that we may own a  piece of fashion history Thanks Anna..You are such a giver!

Fashion BFF’s?

Posted By: Terri
Category: Humor

Well…well…well…isn’t this interesting? If you read GTGG with any sort of frequency, you know that  I have been pondering the possibility of SJP and Anna Wintour as BFF’s. for quite sometime. In previous posts I  noted numerous observations that would confirm this suspicion…

 Let’s review shall we.

Clue #1: SJP has been featured numerous times on the COVER of Vogue.

Clue. #2: Along with the noted “High Cover Count”-each issue went on to feature a written and beautiful depicted editorial homage to Ms. Parker.

Clue 3: SJP and Anna Wintour have been sited at numerous events-sitting next to each other conversing, exchanging pleasantries and/or in deep conversation.

Coincidence?????

I am definitely watching and keeping count.

Reading Anna Wintour…..Mission Impossible.

Category: Uncategorized

The September Issue opened August 28th in New York, BUT the rest of us in assorted locations like Los Angeles have had to wait until September 11. Finally!! The wait is over.

As much as I am looking forward to seeing the whole back story of putting together Vogue -(the official Fashion Bible)- I must get this pet peeve off my wonder bra’s chest.

Ms. Anna Wintour- Could you please join the rest of us this evening and TAKE OFF your sunglasses? If Sienna Miller can stand the flashing bulbs blinding her, then darling so can you. It might even make you appear to be more approachable…Oh, you don’t like approachable…well then stand behind your “shield of Shades.” and I’ll just try to read your personality from your mood ring.

September 11-The September Issue opens Nationwide!

Movie Alert-The September Issue

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

Vogue Editor in Cheif Anna Wintour

Premiered: January 16th, 2009
U.S. Theatrical Release: August 28th, 2009

The September Issue, directed and produced by R.J. Cutler, tells the story of legendary Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and her larger-than-life team of  servants (I meant editors) creating the issue and ruling the world of fashion.

Cutler doesn’t miss a Manolo Blahnik step in showing how cut throat the world of fashion can be. All I can say is keep your nails sharpend and put Anna on your Christmas card list…this is one woman you don’t want to  tick off.   But I mean that in the nicest way…….
