On the eve of the Met Costume Institute's new exhibit honoring Miuccia Prada and the late Elsa Schiaparelli, one Miss Anna Wintour visited The Colbert Report presumably to prove that she is, in fact, a human being with feelings and emotions. At the tail end of her 6-minute visit, the Vogue editrix not only agreed to - gasp! - wear sweatpants, but to wear them to Long John Silver's to lose herself in a pile of batter-fried shrimp WHILE ON A DATE WITH STEPHEN COLBERT. Here's how it all went down:
Colbert: Is there ever a time when you can not care about fashion? Do you ever say to yourself, "to hell with this," and just put on a pair of zebra-striped sweatpants, and go to Long John Silver's and just lose yourself in a pile of batter-fried shrimp? Wintour: Well, I haven't done it recently, but maybe now you suggest it, I should try it? Colbert: Perhaps you and I — Wintour: Together! Colbert: Could go, you know, bobbing for French fries! Wintour: Why not? Why not! It's a date!
