This may not look as good as Manolo Blahnik’s home (partly because it lacks life and actual fashion and mostly because it lacks the vision of the talented photographer), however, do take a look at Anna Wintour’s summer house!
It’s her Long Island property, reworked and redesigned to fit her Vogue-ish Majesty with all the royal comfort and style she deserves! The result is pretty much symmetrical to whatever fashion standard she’s trying to maintain in her Vogue editor offices, as celeb ready and artificially natural as possible. However, it’s Anna Wintour herself who said it best:
“…an 1834 farmhouse, with loads of additions and 12 poky bedrooms. It had a perplexing reception room with difficult, though grand, proportions. It had lawns that tumbled down toward a beautiful-to-the-eye, toxic-to-everything-else river. It had nearly 25 acres of difficult trees in deer-infested woods. It was, as we say at Vogue, challenging.”
um… yes, Anna, the nature is pretty challenging usually. And pretty as it is. But then again, there must be some kind of Photoshop ops for natural environments also. You can have a glimpse at what was before the Summer House of Wintour right after the jump! (tA via NYmag)
