"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.

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.
