Anna Wintour’s Former Right-Hand Man Reveals the Horrible Truth About Her Persona
Short bob, full bangs, and sunglasses – these are reminiscent of the iconic Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who has cemented her image as an aloof and cold-hearted businesswoman no one dares to criticize. That was until her former good friend, Andre Leon Talley, made a shocking revelation about the mysterious fashion guru.
Well, what do you know about the ever-elusive Anna? It is hard to judge by the rumors in the tabloids but it is worth noting that she has been dubbed as Nuclear Wintour because of her stern and stoic façade.
She has a reputation as a ruthless boss and was even likened to Miranda Priestly in attitude. In fact, until now, she is believed to be the inspiration behind the mean-spirited character in The Devil Wears Prada.
According to the grapevine, Meryl Streep’s portrayal of the unforgiving, meticulous boss in the film nailed how Anna is in real life. A rumor has it that an assistant of the 70-year-old journalist goes to her house every morning to show her a copy of a giant book and the mockup of Vogue’s latest issue and to bring her clean outfits and flowers – just like how it was in the film.
While the scene could instantly make you cringe, she did try to clean up her image recently. In the segment Go Ask Anna, guests and viewers get to see a softer side of her.
However, with the former America’s Next Top Model judge’s revelations in his book, The Chiffon Trenches: A Memoir, slated to be released in September, Anna’s new image just vanished. Now, Andre paints her as someone who is not capable of being kind.
Andre went on to take a dig at his former colleague by accusing her of leaving him psychologically and emotionally scarred. The writer informed readers that Anna attacked him at a time he was struggling with his weight.
The chairwoman of the Gala allegedly called Andre to instruct him to go to the gym. After failing to lose weight even though he adhered to a diet wherein he could only eat cabbage, Anna was said to have initiated an intervention for her friend.
Her right-hand man eventually entered the Duke Diet and Fitness Center for rehab. Others would argue that Anna was just looking out for her confidante but Andre was certain that she wasn’t kind.
The issue doesn’t just lie in her comments about his weight. Anna also allegedly kicked him to the curb in 2018, when Andre assumed he was going to interview guests at the Met Gala.
However, he was informed that coverage like that is beneath him. Then, it dawned on him – he was unceremoniously being thrown out of the company.
Even though a lot had happened between them, Andre’s doors remain open to his ex-pal’s apologies.
