Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs Tolerate Jimmy Fallon For Fashion’s Night Out

manna Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs Tolerate Jimmy Fallon For Fashion’s Night OutWorlds collided last night as Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote Fashion’s Night Out.

The usually nervous host seemed at ease with the pair as he promoted the event as “this amazing, uh, night out” that features among other things “a crazy-awesome performance by something.”

Fallon also addressed Wintour’s “day job,” picking up the September issue of Vogue and praising it for its heft. “726 pages in one magazine,” he said, dropping it on its desk and extolling its value per pound.  You should see the French version!

“We were meant to talk about Fashion’s Night Out,” Wintour says quietly later.

It’s worth watching if only for the interactions between Jacobs and Fallon.

“So if a celebrity wears your stuff, like a Sofia Coppola, is that like a big break for you?” Fallon asks.

“Well Sofia’s a friend…” Jacobs trails off. “It doesn’t hurt.”

See Jacobs’ response to the question “What is the new black?” below!

The relevant interview occurs around 17:30.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
