Quote of the Day

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.
-Anna Wintour to The Cut via Girl With A Satchel

What is fascinating to me about this quote is the way that Wintour positions herself/fashion vs. bloggers- note how many times she uses the word 'we', as if Vogue are the gatekeepers of fashion. And the calm assumption that style blogging automatically benefits Vogue.
