Peachy at The Met: Exclusive Interview with Mover and Shaker Anna Wintour in Honor of the New Exhibit American Woman! We love The Met, we love Fashion and we love Anna!!! And we asked her one impossible question...

Today, Peachy Deegan was at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for the unveiling of American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity and she was lucky enough to capture a few moments of Anna Wintour's time to chat.

Peachy Deegan:  How did you enjoy doing the exhibit this year?
Anna Wintour: Well I'm not personally in any way responsible for the exhibition, it's Andrew Bolton who's curator of The Costume Institute.  I'm just here to help support him and work on the party.

Of the different decades in the different rooms that were featured, which did you enjoy the most?
Well I think they're all wonderful.  I think what Shane and Nathan did with the screens and backdrops- is absolutely just extraordinary and each one reflects the archetype personally so I was just thrilled with the whole exhibition.

Of the whole exhibition, if you could pick one gown to wear tonight, which one would you pick and why?
Oh well that's an impossible question to answer they're all wonderful!

How about 5?
Well, one from each room!  (And she smiled.)

Thank you Anna for your graciousness and the opportunity to speak with you!  Thank you to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, who always put on excellent exhibitions, the very best in Manhattan.
