Ever since Vogue started their rapid-fire, single-take '73 Questions' video series, we've been wondering when they'd turn the camera on Anna Wintour. And—praise be—that day has finally come. The Vogue EIC starts off by answering some warm-up questions (What time do you wake up? "5am," What's your favorite breakfast? "Starbucks") before getting into our favorite topic—New York City.
Anna prefers downtown to uptown, name-checks the Met as her favorite museum, and, when asked for her thoughts on Brooklyn, responds, "it's the new Silicon Valley." Which can be taken so many ways. Does Anna Wintour think Brooklyn is innovative and idealistic? Or full of socially awkward dudes who pay for their hoodies and infinity scarves in Bitcoin?
