Does Tim Gunn seem like a liar to you? One to make up wild stories about diva behavior? Not to me, either. Tim is set to release a book that he wrote with the help of a NY Post writer. Of course, The Post has some excerpts, and if the book is anything like the excerpt, this should be great!!
Talking about Anna Wintour, Gunn said, "I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won't-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna would deign to get on. She wasn't there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs. The bodyguards had made a fireman's lock and were racing her from landing to landing. She was sitting on their crossed arms."
Surely though when they got to the bottom of the stairs though, Anna would walk to the car. Right? "I ran to the window to see if they would put her down on the sidewalk or carry her to the car like that. They carried her to the car. And I thought: I will never forget this."
Who were these people carrying Anna? Do they get paid to do this for her? Because that seems like something that would be tough to quantify on a resume.
He also took a dig at Andre Leon Talley's divaness. "When we return to the green room, we see that someone has spread a translucent barber's bib over Andre and he's reclining, his arms at his sides. He's being fed grapes and cubes of cheese one by one, like a bird in a nest."
I can totally see Andre doing that. Probably learned it from Tyra Banks.
When The Post called Vogue for a comment they said that Tim has a vivid imagination and none of this happened. Uh huh.
