No aspect of fashion escapes the sharp eye of “Vogue” queen Anna Wintour, including David Letterman’s socks.
Wintour, taping an appearance Monday on Letterman’s “Late Show,” labeled them “interesting.”
Letterman, who called himself a “dope” who doesn’t know anything about fashion, flashed a view of his gray stockings and invited Wintour to “take a look at those, honey.”
Wintour, making her first appearance on CBS’ “Late Show,” is featured in the new documentary “The September Issue” about production of the 2007 issue that – arriving before the recession – was the biggest in Vogue’s 117-year history.
The magazine editor made light of her image as an imperious and tough boss, but acknowledged that she is direct with her staff.
“Well, I’m very decisive and I try and give very clear direction to the people that I’m working with, and sometimes, unfortunately, they don’t hear the answer that they would like to hear,” Wintour said, according to a CBS transcript.
