Tim Gunn’s on The Daily Show right now, charming Jon Stewart and the audience, retelling the now-famous Anna Wintour story. It’s a favourite: here’s a version of the same story he told Reeg and Kelly today (thanks to Jezebel).
Originally from the NY Post:
“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.”
I am ordering my copy of Gunn’s Golden Rules right now. It’s the closest I’ll probably come to hugging the man.
