At last night's Pratt talk, Anna Wintour had all sorts of polite, mildly undermining things to say about laptop-toting hacks like us: "We love as much coverage of fashion as possible. We don't care at all where it comes from, and we embrace bloggers and video and social networking, and anyone that's talking about fashion is a good thing. And we now have our own website that incorporates all of that. But I think what's interesting to us with this new phenomenon that 'everyone's a fashion editor, everyone's a fashion writer' is that all of that actually helps Vogue, because we have access and the understanding of fashion that, forgive me, but maybe some bloggers and some of the newcomers to this world have a little bit less experience of, but as I said, the more the merrier. We embrace it." If she had to leave Vogue, though, blogging would not be her first choice of career: She'd "like to run the Tennis Channel." [The Cut]
