    Love the dress and accessories – hate the fur. She poses though and that makes the photo lose a lot…I prefer your photos where the subject looks more natural.

    Oh wow, she actually smile! And from the picture, she does look very slim.
    I love her outfit, mixing prints with fur (yet the result is not too ‘loud’), softer fabric v.s heavier fabric, the contrast is brilliant!
    Oh and of couse, the burgundy tights instead of the overrated Opaque Black tights.

    What a chilly smile under that bob and sun glasses! Cute dress, awful fur and lovely stockings.

    Ok, I really like it. The colors are amazing. BUT, personally, I have never been a fan of open toe shoes with tights.

    Interesting how a Chanel-lke hairdo fits her perfectly. Could anybody picture her with another hair style on?

    i’m sure i must speak for you sart in that the woman sitting next to anna makes this photo interesting. as far as what anna wintour wears? do we care? she’s so boooooring. it’s like she’s made of plaster. it doesn’t matter what she’s wearing, because she never moves and there is no life to her. the photo definately is moving though. it moved me. thank you.

    This is a fantastic pic. If I didn’t know better I’d say it was a proposed poster for the Devil Wears Prada movie. The sychophantic, slightly worried gaze of adoration by the girl on the right plus the wicked cheshire grin of Anna perfectly encapsulates the cliche about her.

    I find Anna Wintour exceptionally chic despite the fact that I almost never like what she’s wearing.

    I guess that’s the essence of chic…

    anna’s brand of fabulousness is what it is. but what I really love is how her colleague – virginia smith – is dressed. I aspire to be that effortlessly chic…I suppose being tall as a tree and having access to all of the collections helps…

    A lovely dress and wonderful burnt wine hoisery but what I really like here is that her lip color is not only excellently chosen for the color scheme but is age and event appropriate, and flattering for her skin tone. It is rare indeed that I see a woman these days and think “Perfect makeup”.

    I love the tights with open toe shoes look. Is that a little smile I see Ms. I never smile cracking just for you Sart? Fabulous.

    I love Anna, but when you compare her to Corinne. . . there is really no competition. Very different styles for sure, but Anna always seems so stiff compared to the easy chic of Corinne. I do love the cheekiness of the red tights with the bronze open-toe sandal, though — takes the pretty-pretty dress up a notch.

    Also, a much overdue congratulations on the Cookie gig and, most importantly, on your darling daughters.

    I read you every day — and I definitely dress more thoughtfully because of it!

    love the burgundy tights. opaque black ones aren’t overrated. they’re just a different choice. but someone’s got to tell wolford to go forth and conquer other colors too.

    would love to see a candid or on the street photo of anna though. the pose and the look on her face ruins the spot-on outfit.

    She looks quite pleased that you are taking her picture – in a “Roitfeld, you don’t win today!” sort of way.

    I think the warm colors really make her stand out in a sea of grey. The dress reminds me of the yellow-flowered Prada dress that was all over the celebs about two years ago. And the hair – a signature is a signature. Her signature works very well for her – in that it is not half as comical as the hair-rolls and head art that other people have become associated with, and in that it hides her face and maintains quite a bit of her all-important inscutability.

    (if this posts more than once, my apologies – it’s acting odd)

    but does her smile extend to her eyes? one can only hope. i noticed the shoes/tights combo right away, if SHE wears it, it MUST be OK, however i don’t see it for me.

    love her hair, the dress, the fur.

    this is a fab photo, she looks amazing in what I think may be prada? she is so beautifully groomed always and the fur is great.
    Anna Wintor is a true inspration and consumate pro at all times and in my view is given such a hard time by the press etc!
    you have got a great shot here as she is she is smiling which makes her look warmer than usual!

    I think she looks terrific. However, though I love tights with open-toe shoes, these shoes are a little too strappy. Also, don’t her highlights look a little too severe?

    Her and Carine Roitfeld have pretty much the same haircut and style. Must be the Vogue influence.

    I’ve recently noticed that looks that seem like they were thrown on and put together ‘easily’ i.e. easy chic is so celebrated, yet looks that are seem put-together are considered as inferior. Why? I have no idea.

    Anna Wintour knows what she’s doing and this picture is proof. We should all give her kudos for giving her gift of fashion to the general public.

    She’s an icon & I don’t like the fur, & I think that the girl sitting next to her- her style resembles Miss Wintour, from top to bottom, even better.

    Nice shot, as always :)
    Lovely dress she’s got on, and she looks amazing for a woman her age, but I’m not sure I like the fur- though that could maybe be because I don’t really like fur..

    Well, the only person who looks better next to Virginia Smith is her BEE-U-TEE-FULL husband Patrick Robinson. Talk about a wonderfully stylish man.

    Incredibly chic, although I don’t like the shoes at all. I read an article about her once – can’t remember where – Vogue or Vanity Fair – and she swore allegiance to three makes/ styles of shoes – the only shoes she’ll ever wear. There were shots of the shoes with the article and I thought they were all awful – a little too school-marm maybe? Anyways, since then, I keep an eye out for her footwear. Unfortunately, as per this photo, she was apparently telling the truth. I think she should branch out.

    Again though, the rest of the look is fabulous. She looks wonderful.

    This photo IS real and captures a moment that otherwise might be missed. The photo works perfectly …Anna’s demure smile of a wise, certain, “if-you-don’t-like-it, f*uck-you/I-got-mine” woman of a certain age (how I love that!); and the undisguised admiration of the young woman next to her, who clearly knows that she is sitting next to THE Goddess. Anna, I love VOGUE. As a woman of a certain age also, VOGUE is the only fashion magazine I still read, and not only because of the fashion. Thank you, Anna, for being the ADULT of the Fashion world and thank you, Sart, for capturing the moment so perfectly!

    Great look, and the strappy-shoe-over-tights works very well. I’ve been doing the tights and open or strappy shoe thing all winter, and *I* think its a winning trend … Even the upcoming season’s “fashion forecasts” seem to extend the tights trend. Yaay!

    There is no standard that she follows. She makes her own, and her look ultimately belongs to one person: herself! That makes her a leader in style. Her singular look comes from being exposed to millions of looks every moment of every day. Jackson Pollock’s splatters may seem to be random, but there is educated intention behind them.

    Hmm, there’s trying too hard and then there’s the (who I’ll only assume) intern’s extreme version of trying too hard with the loving look.

    It all seems very “Westmount.” I guess that’s Montreal’s version of the Hampton’s to Americans.

    Sorry, Sart, there’s something about this set up — but not the photographic skills, of course — that displeases me tremendously. So much so that I can’t begin to appreciate what fashion may be within…although I tried for at least a millisecond. Really.

    Not sure about this look…but her hair is always perfection. What is up with all the NY girls who don’t wear a stitch of makeup? I don’t get it…just a little blush and gloss goes a long way! Maybe they didn’t read the article in the NY Times.

    I’ve never been a fan of wearing stockings with open shoes – I would have never thought she would wear this, not like her. Wonder if she did it on purpose or if she really likes how the combination looks. Overall, she looks good though!

    Sorry to sound doctrinaire, but the fur is so unnecessary. Faux fur would actually be more effective.
