What is with all these divas not wanting to walk up a couple flights of stairs?
First it was Naomi Campbell, and now a new story has come out saying Anna Wintour doesn't do them either!
In Tim Gunn's new book Gunn's Golden Rules, the Project Runway mentor describes a time when Vogue's editor-in-chief pulled an even more diva move than Naomi at Peter Som's fashion show in 2006.
"I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won't-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna would deign to get on. She wasn't there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs. The bodyguards had made a fireman's lock and were racing her from landing to landing. She was sitting on their crossed arms.
I ran to the window to see if they would put her down on the sidewalk or carry her to the car like that. They carried her to the car. And I thought: I will never for get this."
Wow. We wish he got a picture of that!
Gunn also spills the deets on Andre Leon Talley's diva-tude behavior at a New York Public Library panel discussion with photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Martha Nelson editor of People.
"When we return to the green room, we see that someone has spread a translucent barber's bib over Andre and he's reclining, his arms at his sides. He's being fed grapes and cubes of cheese one by one, like a bird in a nest."
Of course Vogue is quick to deny both of Tim's claims saying "Tim Gunn has a very vivid imagination. There is no truth to any of this."
Who do U believe???
