The WWD is reporting that Anna Wintour has redecorated her office to banish all similarities between her office and the office of the Runway editor in the movie, Devil Wears Prada.
“Though Meryl Streep took care to say that she wasn’t basing her “The Devil Wears Prada” performance on Anna Wintour, the film’s production designer made no such distinctions. Side-by-side photos of the Vogue editor-in-chief and Streep’s tyrannical editor in their respective offices yielded a near mirror image, down to the photos on the wall (though Wintour’s is the more cluttered).
Now Wintour has redecorated to erase any similarity, a Vogue spokesman confirmed Wednesday.
“Anna has decided to freshen up her office,” said the spokesman. “After this summer’s film, it ceased to feel personal.”
The film’s production designer, Jess Gonchor, told WWD that he had worked off a photo of Wintour at her desk that he found online. “I had no way to get into Vogue,” he recalled. “I know they wanted nothing to do with it.”
P.S. Have you ever wondered who was the real life “Emily”? Gawker knows.
