Weight Nazi Anna Wintour Made Oprah Crash Diet for Vogue Cover
Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour was on 60 minutes yesterday and, according to reports, in an unaired portion of the interview the fashion maven revealed that she told media giant (so to speak) Oprah Winfrey to drop 20 pounds before her 1998 Vogue cover.
“It was a very gentle suggestion,” she said, laughing. “I went to Chicago to visit Oprah, and I suggested that it might be an idea that she lose a little bit of weight.”She added: “I said simply that you might feel more comfortable. She was a trooper!”
“She totally welcomed the idea, and she went on a very stringent diet,” Wintour said. “And it was one of our most successful covers ever.”
Later in the interview Wintour goes on b*tch about the weight of people in Minnesota – calling them “little houses” and asserts that people in the U.S. are more concerned over anorexia then obesity (not true). Perhaps Ms. Wintour should be less concerned about Midwest eating habits and more concerned about why after a mere decade Oprah looks relatively the same and she looks like a creature from a Tim Burton flick.
