"Remember what it used to be like? You couldn't exactly be Venus Williams or a Spice Girl and be in capital S Society. You know who opened up society more than anyone? Anna Wintour. She made fashion not about rich people, but about talented people. It isn't a race, it isn't a religion, it is a meritocracy and Anna started giving dinners for people like that, especially The Costume Institute fundraiser every spring." - Isaac Mizrahi, on fashion's historical supporters, to wowOwow.
Isaac Mizrahi Once Emailed Anna Wintour in an Ambien Haze
In a little gem from New York mag's "Party Lines" this week, Isaac Mizrahi responded thusly when asked if he ever drunk texts: My problem is Ambien e-mailing. I once cc'ed Anna Wintour and Peggy Siegal after taking Ambien. I forget what I said but they responded asking, "Are you all right?" That was about five years ago. So no more Ambien emailing for me. Mizrahi's habit of Ambien emailing fashion editors also made it into his cabaret act.
