Tim Gunn: I don’t look Anna Wintour in the eyes
I thought: ‘I will never forget this.’” Gunn told us at an A+E Networks bash on Thursday that when Wintour heard about his book, “All hell broke loose…Her office was insisting I print a retraction.”
But, “In the middle of all this, Peter Arnold, then executive director of the CFDA, came to my office and asked, ‘What’s wrong with you? You look awful.’
I told him the story and he said, ‘I was there, I saw it.’” They bravely called Wintour’s office to say there were more witnesses. “Also, I wasn’t maligning her character,” Gunn pointed out. “I was simply making a statement of facts. It didn’t say anything about her as a person…the cause célèbre here was speed.”
Vogue has no comment.
