Anna Wintour, often called the one and only figure of power in the New York fashion market with her inglorious influence as the editor of Vogue have been unable to avoid criticism recently, as her ‘hurtful and intolerant’ comments and behaviours in the past toward African-American employees and staffs have resurfaced onto press releases and exposes.
Now, her high school friends and close relations have come up with their own accounts of how Wintour was a mean soul, alienating anyone in her path.
One and only close teen friend back then, Vivienne Lasky, have told the biographer in the making of the bibliography ‘Front Row,’ that the future fashion power was “marked by petty jealousies and extreme cattiness.
” ‘If I disliked anything about Anna when we were kids, it was her rudeness….My mother would say, No civility. ’ She was purportedly ‘harshly critical and sarcastic, and made fun of people who weren’t. Anna really cared about appearances.
She would point out another girl and say, ”My God, look how fat, she is.Look at her face, look at her horrible, curly hair”. ’
And back then Lasky was chubby and had curly hair – and Anna took vicious advantage. Anna, daughter of Charles Wintour, a prominent London newspaper editor, would buy Lasky little gifts of clothing, but everything was meanly too small to fit her, even a ball gown that Lasky could barely fit into, considering Lasky was a bit off the general model standards at the time.
Lasky’s mother have assumed that Wintour ‘purposefully and maliciously to tease and taunt her daughter.
’ And when Anna learned that Vivienne, whose father also was a prominent editor, loved eating thick lamb chops, Anna learned to cook them so ‘she could gloat’ while watching her friend clean her plate.
‘She would just sit there and watch ME eat,’ recalled Lasky.
‘She wouldn’t eat, and she would point out that I was ”pleasantly plump.” ‘I said. ”Well, Anna, I don’t want to be a model,” and she said, wagging her finger, ”You know, Vivienne, WE don’t want to get TOO pudgy.
” Anna, hurting Vivienne’s feelings, would demand, ‘Why don’t you have more self-control?’ ‘My mother says I would come home from those dinners feeling a lack of self-esteem.She said I didn’t come back confident and smiling.
My mother said Anna was malicious.’
