Tim Gunn on Anna Wintour: "We're Arch Enemies"
Posted Tuesday May 13, 2014 5:58 PM GMT
They are two of the most respected names in fashion, yet Tim Gunn and Anna Wintour won't be collaborating any time soon.
The "Project Runway" mentor and the Vogue editor-in-chief have been at odds since Gunn recounted a story about Wintour in his book "Gunn's Golden Rules" back in 2010.
In the book, Gunn discusses his encounter with the fiery editor while she was carried down the stairs at an event to avoid riding the elevator with other people.
After the book was published, the 60-year-old author said, “All hell broke loose. Her office was insisting I print a retraction.”
“Also, I wasn’t maligning her character,” Gunn remarked. “I was simply making a statement of facts."
When asked by reporters about their relationship these days, Tim quipped, "I don’t look her in the eyes, because I will be turned into stone. We’re arch enemies. We’re sparring partners. We’re constantly spitting venom at each other. I am a truth-teller and some other people don’t like to accept responsibility for their actions.”
