It Is Now The Time of Year When We All Get Excited About Fashion’s Night Out

Anna Wintour may be shy, but this week she spent over an hour talking with summer interns at Condé Nast. According to Memo Pad, she was “enlightening the youth” but also recruiting volunteers to help with kick-off events for her September 10th Fashion’s Night Out.

Page Six reports today that Ms. Wintour’s retail-boosting fall fashion event will have no fewer than two spots on television. CBS will be airing a one-hour special about the event at the beginning of the following week, and CW has also worked the event into an episode of Gossip Girl, featuring a cameo by Vogue editor Hamish Bowles. We like to imagine Mr. Bowles arguing with Andre Leon Talley over this honor. Mr. Bowles no doubt reminded Mr. Talley that he already has America’s Next Top Model and Taxi TV.
