the dreadlock rasta was the buffalo soldier... and anna wintour's bf?!

Yes that's right. Anna Wintour fashion editor of Vogue and the fashion "devil" has once dated Bob Marley. Straight from Wikipedia...

"She became a junior fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar in New York in 1975.[22] Her innovative shoots caused conflict with editor Tony Mazzola, and she was fired after nine months, although she has often claimed to have worked there for longer.[25] During that time she was introduced to Bob Marley by one of Bradshaw's friends, and disappeared with him for a week.[26]"

Who knew uptight Anna dated a rastaaa!!! I wonder if her daughter, Bee knows this little secret about her mother's past....

Speaking of editors' spawns, I've just recently discovered a new fascination with the Roitfeld family. Carine, editor-in-chief of French Vogue, has always caught my eye. Her smoky-eyed-just-rolled-out-of-bed-heroin-chic-look fits her really well. Her face is a little rough and wrinkled with signature bushy eyebrows, but somehow she manages to make it look good...always. Her daughter Julia, who by the way graduated from Parsons, has been gifted with the Roitfeld genetics and sense of style. Who looks better...mother (54) or daughter (26)?
