Very matter of fact question and very matter of fact response and it was, 'Watching Anna Wintour being carried down 5 flights of stairs from a fashion show.'"

There were many calls back and forth and finally, there was a call during which her Director of Communications said, 'I'll have you know Ms. Wintour knows how to work a Manolo.'"
