So there we were, just cruising through today's Marc Jacobs Collection sale on infamous discount designer sample sale site Gilt Groupe, when we went too quickly down the page and thought we saw Anna Wintour.
Of course, Anna Wintour wouldn't be caught dead modeling, let alone for a sample sale site, but her doppelganger could. And so, much like Chanel has a Lily Allen-ish mannequin, Gilt has introduced a Wintour woman.
It takes us back to a few years ago when, in Vogue Paris, model Snejana Onopka did a whole spread as Wintour. Those were simpler times, when we weren't being subliminally influenced to dress like an editrix.
