Icy Anna Wintour Shades Pitchfork Staff During Layoffs

Former Pitchfork writer Allison Hussey took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to express her discontent with Anna Wintour’s handling of the staff layoffs at music magazine Pitchfork. According to Hussey, Wintour, famed Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, did not remove her sunglasses even while seated indoors at a conference table, delivering the news of imminent job losses. The tweet claimed that the “indecency” displayed by upper management during this time was shocking and appalling.

Pitchfork’s Absorption by GQ

On Thursday, it was announced that Pitchfork would be assimilated into GQ, resulting in staff layoffs. Wintour, in a memo sent per the New York Times, explained that this decision was made after a careful evaluation of Pitchfork’s performance. She further stated that GQ was deemed the best path forward for the brand, ensuring that music coverage could continue to thrive within the company.

Wintour’s reputation as a diva is not new. The renowned fashion editor is frequently seen sporting oversized sunglasses, even indoors. Page Six previously reported an incident in 2022 when Wintour was momentarily taken aback when asked to present her ID at an off-Broadway show in New York City. She has also been accused of causing chaos in the fashion world, such as allegedly wreaking havoc on New York Fashion Week by leaving early to prepare for a Vogue event in London, leaving designers scrambling to complete their collections in advance.

Despite her diva reputation, Wintour has occasionally shown a lighter side. During a cameo appearance in the Broadway show “Gutenberg! The Musical!”, Wintour jokingly referred to herself as “a very famous Broadway producer” before playfully introducing Anne Hathaway as her assistant, referencing Hathaway’s character in “The Devil Wears Prada.” This references Wintour’s role as the inspiration for the novel by Lauren Weisberger, which later became a film starring Hathaway and Meryl Streep.

“The Devil Wears Prada” novel by Lauren Weisberger was based on her experience working as one of Wintour’s assistants at Vogue. The book’s success led to a film adaptation, further perpetuating the public’s fascination with Wintour’s persona.

The recent layoffs at Pitchfork, accompanied by Anna Wintour’s alleged demeanor during the process, have sparked criticism of the fashion editor’s behavior. While Wintour’s reputation as a diva is well-known, she has also shown moments of self-mockery and has remained a prominent figure in the fashion industry. The impact of Wintour’s involvement in “The Devil Wears Prada” continues to be felt, as her character influences public perception of the fashion world and its leaders.
