Women’s Wear Daily Gives Anonymous Vanity Fair Staffers Turf To Trash New Editor’s Fashion Sense

“Jones’ choice of hosiery proved most offensive. She had chosen a pair of tights, not in a neutral black or gray as is common in the halls of Vogue, but a pair covered with illustrated, cartoon foxes. Vogue editor-in-chief and Condé Nast artistic director Anna Wintour fixed one of her trademark stoic glares upon Jones’ hosiery throughout the staff meeting.”

“The plot pinballs on through a frantic night of bad decisions. Few of the characters have the first idea what might be coming next — nor do we, strapped into this feral shaggy dog story the Safdies have set rolling, hurtling towards their brilliant future.”

“Tweeden told Fox News that, horrified as she was, she doesn’t think Franken needs to resign over it. “People make mistakes,” she said. The more we learn about how grotesquely prevalent sexual harassment is, the more I wonder if we can really toss aside every man who has ever crossed a line, and if we do, how many will remain. The feminist Jacobin in me thinks: Who cares?

And it goes both ways. But it’s the equilibre of power that I find so terrifying today, the war of power.”
