Omg! Your chance to breathe Anna Wintour's air!

Oh, hand-fan your face, girlfriend! The legend that is Anna Wintour has created an "opportunity" to meet her at American Vogue on the 12th floor of 4 Times Square, NY. You don't just swan in for ritual humiliation, natch. First, you must make a bid for the chance in an online charity auction - here's the link - and the price to beat as I write is $12,000.

I'm surprised that only 16 bids have been placed; the deadline is April 29 - plenty of time to butter up daddy for the dosh or whatever. Aside from meeting Anna you get to do unpaid intern work at the magazine - y'know, do the coffee runs, push clothes racks and watch Grace Coddington pull faces behind Anna's back. All cash goes to the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, but more important, "Just Being Near Her [Anna] Will Make You Chic," as organisers Charity Buzz put it.

How common.

Grace Coddington is truly chic. Anna is a botoxed, stretched Pamela Anderson version of what real style and fashion are about. Like saying Victoria Beckham is the new Jackie O. And Anna Nuclear Winter, comes a point dahling when a woman of a certain age just shouldn't wear cute little cardis. Even if they are Chanel.

In The September Issue, Anna's creped skin is very evident. She also squints after Grace departs her office in one scene. I wonder why.

Truly vile woman. She squints because she can't bear the light emanating off the magnificent Grace. I would pay NOT to breathe her hair.

You missed the best bit: "The experience would be tailored to the interests and skills of the auction winner."
