"I need Vogue to be pacy, sharp, and attractive, I'm not inspired by the super-rich or interminably leisured. I need our perusers to be fiery, official ladies, with cash of their own and a wide scope of premiums," she told the London Daily Telegraph. "There is another sort of lady out there. She's keen on business and cash. She doesn't have room schedule-wise to shop any longer. She needs to comprehend what and why and where and how."

We spend our working lives advising individuals which it-sack to convey yet Anna is so over whatever is left of us she doesn't have a satchel. She has a limo.
