Lazaro Hernandez, Anna Wintour, and Jack McCollough
Independent of being Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour’s daughter, Bee Shaffer is kind of like a silent style icon. She doesn’t care about fashion all that much and works in the television industry for Late Night with Seth Meyers. However, when she needs to make an appearance like say… at the Met Gala she’s there. Bee is beautiful and her mother is the only name anyone would ever need to know in the fashion industry. Based off of the character “Miranda” in The Devil Wears Prada, everyone is naturally curious about what it’s like to call the ice queen Mom.
I can’t believe it’s time already for the most fashionable night of the year! It’s crazy to think that a year has already gone by. I feel like I was making the 2013 post just last month. This year’s theme is White Tie and Decorations.
Of course we’re kicking things off with Queen Bey and Jay.

Could it be? Is America ready for a woman to become President? We just might be! Word on the street is that Hillary Clinton is thinking about running in 2016 and she’s already rounding up her troop of supporters – first with Oscar de la Renta and now Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour. Oscar de la Renta announced his bid for her candidacy at the recent CFDA awards while Wintour expressed her praise for Clinton yesterday evening at the opening of the Oscar de la Renta retrospective.
Wintour first praised Clinton for “always look[ing] entirely appropriate wherever she was”–quite the about face from the Vogue editor considering that in her February 2008 editor’s letter she wrote, “I do think Americans have moved on from the power-suit mentality, which served as a bridge for a generation of women to reach boardrooms filled with men”–and went on to not-so-subtly hint at a Clinton presidency. “It’s anyone’s guess what the next chapter will be for this extraordinary woman,” Wintour told the crowd. “I can only hope that all of you here in Little Rock will be celebrating her come November 2016.”

I could not be more excited about this new HBO documentary on the HBIC – the editors of Vogue! The September Issue is one of my favorite movies of all time and I still remember just how powerful it was to learn about the Vogue culture and step into Anna Wintour’s world for 90 minutes. If you haven’t seen it, it is incredible. The last I checked two years ago, it was on Netflix. It probably isn’t there anymore, but if it is – hi – watch it! I can’t promise you that it will be as life changing for you as it was for me, but there are other things that can be appreciated from this R.J. Cutler documentary – like the art and the creation and everything you didn’t know about this industry whether it is in magazines or fashion.
The documentary airs December 6th on HBO. Marking my calendar now.
Growing up, I’ve always lived by this rule that airports were the only acceptable setting for someone to be wearing sweats in public. Sometimes, even that seemed like a stretch. No one wants to be uncomfortable while traveling. You have to take off your shoes. You’re confined to a seat. You’re sitting next to people that you don’t want to be sitting by. The blankets are measly and sometimes they’ve already got some vomit on them. Nice, right?! I’ve had my fair share of bad luck with traveling.
So I can’t blame you if you want to be wearing sweats at the airport, but you should know that there are more appropriate ways of being comfortable while flying. Celebrities do it all the time in your standard tee and jeans outfit so we should all be able to as well.
Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, brought on with her a second outfit to change into as she flew from New York to Los Angeles. When she got on the plane, she was wearing a Louis Vuitton dress, but soon after she had sat down, the editor excused herself to the bathroom and came out wearing jeans and a “cute top.” Sure enough, before the plane landed in Los Angeles, Wintour was back in her Louis Vuitton dress again. This woman is incredible.
