Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine is seen here dashing out of the W. 39th St. venue where Francisco Costa’s Spring/Summer 2013 Calvin Klein Collection was presented. The infamously harsh Brit stormed out of the show in the middle of the its finale, later claiming that the plainness and boring silhouettes in the show made her “light-headed and nauseous - as though I was about to pass out. It almost felt like a panic attack.” But why the overt physical reaction? “Francisco’s last collections at Calvin have been outstandingly brilliant. This season was, and pardon my French, an absolute piece of shit.”
Wintour was quickly followed by her bodyguard and gaggle of personal assistants who stood behind the exclusively select crowd of attendees. Outside she was seen gasping for air as her entourage tried to shield her from prying paparazzi. “I haven’t seen her get this way since last season’s Alexander McQueen in Paris. It was awful. This is awful,” stated Wintour’s close friend and Vogue Editor-at-Large, Andre Leon Talley. After the McQueen show in Paris last march, Wintour was reported to have thrown up paté all over dear friend Hamish Bowle’s satin trousers.
