The Devil Wears Prada comes out on DVD Today

And it's based on this women. Can you guess who own's this scary hand? I think she was the first person to do the "calorie restriction diet".If you're a long time reader of my blog you know I have tried to get a decent photo of Anna Wintour even before the movie made her infamous. In this shot she was attending an Oscar De LaRenta affair for the Queen of Spain. Most guests went in the front door, especially since there were PETA protestors at the side or "VIP" entrance of the Pierre Hotel. No our Miss Anna went right passed them and towards me where I was yelling, "Ms. Wintour may I have a photo", she looked up and smiled, and then saw that I wasn't a paparazzi, as I had my pocket Nikon, made the nastiest face (which I would rather of had than the shot I did get), and turned her head so that I may get the first of the many shots of her bob over the next 15 months. A few months later I tried to shoot her leaving a private party that Mario Testino had, again I was the only photographer there and she refused to pose. Thankfully Drew Barrymore and Gwen Stefani were much more accomodating.
CFDA in JuneThings got a little better this past September at Zac Posen's Fashion Show at Bryant Park. Ms. Wintour and her long suffering husband exited the tents through the "Stage Door". I knew from experience if I wanted a shot of her face I'd better do it from 30 feet or get another "Bob" shot. Since when did magazine editors get bodyguards? Graydon Carter runs around town begging to get noticed with the pile of hair on the top of his head.Then that fateful night two weeks ago at the Verticle Hours opening. I saw her walking my way, I thought this was my chance, I needed a clearing, as she approached I said "Miss Wintour, may I have a shot please", she responded by speeding up and putting her hand over her face. BITCH, I thought, I'll just add this to my collection of bobs. Then the paparazzi gods heard me, a genuine paparazzi with a big lens, flash and battery pack wanted to shoot both Anna and her #11 Social Ranked off-spring http://www.socialiterank.com/?p=670 Bee Schaeffer, and Anna complied as she thought "Now you're talking, this could go in People or something real important!" I love Anna Wintour's bio on the Vogue website: With her razor sharp bob, slim build and sunglasses - which she reportedly wears to shield her eyes from the fashion shows' flashbulbs (more like all the work she's had done on her face) - Anna Wintour is the fashion industry's ultimate icon. Like her image, Wintour's daily regime is legendary. Based in Manhattan, she wakes up at 5.45am every morning, to go to play tennis, before being professionally made-up (professionally is debatable?), coiffed and chauffeured to the offices of American Vogue.Though one of New York's most prolific party throwers, she never stays at any one event for more than the first ten minutes, preferring to be in bed by 10pm. (end of bio) "The DEVIL WEARS PRADA" is really a movie about choices and who you want to be. It poses the question of "do you need to be a ruthless devil to be professionally successful?" One of the things that's also worth mentioning is the question of if Anna Wintour was a man, would people still regard her as the devil? Things were cleverly written and smart resonances can be found littering around in the whole movie. So run out today and pick up a copy of "The DEVIL WEARS PRADA" if you want to satisfy your bitch craving. Starring an Oscar worthy Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.

I read this book about 3 months before the film came out. I wasn't working at the time and I finished in 2 days. Couldn't put it down. I loved the movie. Meryl Streep said she based the character on a few Hollywood Male Execs... I wonder who? Loved the film!

She lied. To Anna Wintour's credit, she went to the private screening with Meryl and Ann Hathaway. Unfortunately I didn't get a shot of Wintour there, and I heard she refused to pose with Meryl.

I just saw the View and Anna Wintour is one of Barbara Walter's 10 most fascinating people this year. The show is on tonight. Good timing for the release of the DVD!

She doesn't even look real! I loved the movie. I thought it was about choices too, but it spoke more to me about not whining about a job and just deal with it already.
