And Now, Anna Wintour!

The title of this post comes from an audience member who was present for last night’s talk with Anna Wintour and Jonathan Tisch. Anna is gone now, we did not keep her here on display at our Art Gallery for you to ogle. We know how much those not in attendance wanted to see her. People were offering hundreds of dollars for tickets that have been sold out for months, and those waiting in the stand-by line were ready to bribe and beg their way in. One woman waited 2 and a half hours before an anonymous individual walked up to her and handed her a ticket (a miracle!) meant for a friend who had not shown up.

For those who could not attend, New York Magazine’s The Cut live blogged the event on Twitter. Lots of highlights and affection: someone shouted “I love you Anna!” and with that the audience cheered. Those aspiring to work for Conde Nast (publisher of Vogue) should take note: Jonathan Tisch asked Anna what she looks for in employees, to which she replied:

“I hire on instincts. Someone I would want to hang out with, and someone who will disagree with me - not “yes” people. I am looking for people that can offer something that I can’t offer myself.”

For more on last night, we suggest visiting this bloggers recap. You can read about Anna’s opinions on the First Lady, the future of fashion, Bryant Park and her new deal with Mayor Bloomberg to help the retail industry.

And because we can’t resist, here’s one more photo from the evening.
