That was all the Daily Mail were really interested in when they secured an interview with the writer of the bestselling novel "The Devil Wears Prada". Based on Weisberger's short career at Vogue under the watchful eye of Anna Wintour, we learn about the real goings on in those Vogue offices. Although the author has a new book out, it is "The Devil Wears Prada" that still grabs the attention of many and indeed made Weisberger her famous self of today. As Weisberger recalls at Vogue:
'I knew I was tall and thin, but I was short and fat there. Where I differed from [Devil Wears Prada protagonist Andy Sachs] was that I 'never got to raid the closet because I never had time, although the other girls did and they wore the most fabulous things to parties. And I never went to Paris. French Vogue provided Anna with assistants when she was over there."
It seems that it's all change for New York Fashion Week this season, and we're not just talking about the change in venue. Lincoln Centre's new fashion director Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has certainly made her mark - at the beginning of this year she announced that fashion week gate-crashers would be a thing of the past, and she's stuck to her word.
According to IMG, roughly 80 per cent of the designers showing this season are jumping on board with Winston Wolkoff's plan to send out bar-coded invitations, meaning guests will be able to check themselves in and find their seats using kiosks at the venue. The implications of the coded system have been put in force to ensure a smoother, more efficient admittance for guests, however it will also wipe out any gate-crashers, as well as allowing publicists to detect no-shows, enabling them to fill any empty seats.
Alongside her plans for technologically advanced admittance, Winston Wolkoff has revealed that she aims to make Lincoln Centre's devotion to fashion a year round thought, rather than just season to season. "I want to see fashion on par with all of the other cultural activities here - the ballet, the opera," she told the Wall Street Journal. "I really do think that it's going to be very important that fashion at Lincoln Centre becomes a year-round initiative."
Be sure to save a space in your diaries on the 14th of September, as CBS - the only television network Vogue trust within their secretive offices - will be airing a documentary on the making of this years Fashion's Night Out. A few short clips, including Anna and her team organising the event - which is to include the largest public fashion show ever - have been released, however we'll have to wait just over three weeks to see the full goings on.
In the meantime, catch footage of possibly the only time all international Vogue editors will sit in the same room, sans runway; Anna revealing the reasoning behind the fashion show; and how feathers (yes, feathers), are set to be a huge trend for this season. Unfortunately for Miss Wintour's British fans, the videos are only available Stateside, however our fashionable friends over the pond can view the clips here.
They only got married last month but Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr already have something else to celebrate. After her model friends and husband started speculation that the pair were expecting their first child, the model confirmed that she is four months pregnant in the September issue of Vogue Spain.
"Yes, I am pregnant. Four months along," she told the magazine. The recent confirmation was likely the result of her growing bump appearing becoming apparent."I remember on one occasion in the early days [of my pregnancy] when it was still too soon to say anything, and I had a dreadful time at one job," referring to morning sickness.

I feel like I'm constantly writing about rumours that Kate Moss and Jamie Hince are engaged and here I am again. The couple sparked speculation that they got married after they were spotted wearing rings on their wedding fingers at the annual horse race, the Palio.
Moss sported a diamong ring while The Kills singer sported a simple silver ring while in Italy, where the pair have been on holiday for the past two weeks, leading many to speculate that they tied the knot while there."Kate and Jamie are closer than ever," a friend of the couple told The Daily Mail. "They aren't married yet but it is very much a case of 'watch this space'".
Madonna has always been known as the original "Material Girl" with her smash-hit record still remembered and played today. Launching her own clothes line for young teenagers at Macys meant having to come up with a name. Material Girl came about as the collection's pieces are inspired from that era of the singer's life and seemed a suitable idea at the time.
However, company L.A Triumph INC are suing Madge over this, claiming that they have been marketing and making millions off their own Material Girl clothing line since 1997. The company has demanded that Madonna must give them all the profits from the Macy's line, which is worth millions already. Lets hope that she can buy her way out of this one, after all if she is to change the name to another of her songs circa 1980's, were thinking that "Like A Virgin" won't go down too well with the mother's buying the clothes for their young daughters.
