Exclusive: Is Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour Shopping a Memoir?

Could Vogue's EIC be writing a memoir?

The Devil Wears Prada indeed!  Rumors are circulating that fashion maven and notorious ice queen Anna Wintour is shopping a memoir to potential publishers.  One can only imagine the dishing on celebs she could do. Known for her love of fur and her distaste for fat people, perhaps we will get to hear from the icon herself what she really thinks of her peers and the fashion world at large.

Manor born to the world of publishing, Anna is the eldest daughter to Charles Wintour, former editor of London's Evening Standard.  Anna took over as head of Vogue in 1988 and has steered the fashion ship through rough and calm waters, and continues to remain the focus of many a designer's nightmares and dreams. 

Meryl Streep's character in The Devil Wear Prada, Miranda Priestly, is widely accepted as a loose depiction of Wintour.  The film is based on the novel by the same name written by a former assistant to Wintour, Lauren Weisberger.  The Priestly/Wintour character is presented as demanding, cold, cruel and withering to subordinates. In other words, the worst boss you can imagine. Then again, she's British, so you can't discount that influence.

A Wintour memoir would certainly be a best-seller and an interesting read.  Watch this space for more details...
