Lasky on Wintour's days on the nightlife circuit in Swinging London; quoted by Oppenheimer at 51
At some stage in her career, Anna Wintour stopped being Anna Wintour and became "Anna Wintour", at which point, like wings of a stately home, she closed off large sections of her personality to the public.
Anna's not someone who takes you in hand. It's more she throws you in the water and you'll either sink or swim.
Laurie Schechter, a former assistant; Oppenheimer at 192.
[Her] unwavering ability to look as if she lives within the pages of her magazine has a sort of honesty to it, proof that, whatever one thinks about it, the lifestyle peddled by Vogue is at least physically possible.
