Anna Wintour started attracting attention well before she moved into the editor's office at Vogue magazine 11 months ago. But now she even steals the spotlight at fashion shows. It happened this spring in New York when Marc Jacobs, the new designer for Perry Ellis, noticed Wintour in the front row at his show, shot an insecure look in her direction and shouted from the runway: "Was it all right?" Heads swiveled toward Wintour, who smiled in characteristic noncommitment, just as she did several days later when Giorgio di Sant' Angelo, another New York fashion maker, knelt down on the runway after his show and kissed her in apparent homage.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may have had a lot of respect for their top-secret Vogue cover shoot, but baby North? Not so much.  Kardashian spilled more behind-the-scenes details of the shoot Tuesday night on "Late Night With Seth Meyers," with the host showing his favorite photo, featuring the whole family, with Kardashian in a Nina Ricci wedding gown and Kanye shirtless, North lying naked on his chest. "North peed on him right at that moment ... ," Kardashian said, "and he was trying to tell me and I couldn't really hear him, and I had to get up and get her, clean her off, clean him off. It's a good memory.

Perhaps nowhere is it more clear that this year is no 2007 than in the new documentary "The September Issue," directed by R.J. Cutler, which goes behind the scenes for the production of the massive 840-page issue of Vogue magazine for September 2007. By focusing on the magazine's longtime editor, the enigmatically imperious Anna Wintour, and her less well-known but no less headstrong creative director, Grace Coddington, the film charts the intersection of art and commerce with a perhaps inadvertent eye for an excess that wasn't to last.

There's buzz that Anna Wintour, the powerful editor of Vogue magazine, is being considered by President Obama for the prestigious post of U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom-- correctly known as ambassador to the Court of St. James's. When White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about this at a news briefing, he wouldn't bite. But it is that time of the postelection season when plum assignments are being bestowed upon supporters, and when ambassadors who got political appointments in Obama's first term are stepping down.

Jerry Oppenheimer is no hagiographer. His unauthorized portraits -- of such celebrities as Martha Stewart, Barbara Walters and Jerry Seinfeld -- don't exactly cast a flattering light. His biographies are filled with juicy, scandalous tidbits, the stuff of which gossip is made. It's no wonder that many of his sources are the anonymous and the disgruntled. If some of the revelations he uncovers seem a bit familiar, well, that doesn't make them any less titillating.

It's a safe bet that when Anna Wintour dropped out of school at age 16, even her nearest and dearest didn't predict much success in her future. Certainly not that the once willful, rebellious teen known for her micro minis, club-hopping and rogue boyfriends would go on to reign as High Priestess of Fashion for 25 years and counting. But Wintour fooled them and became top editor at Vogue magazine and one of the most glamorous and powerful individuals in the world's $160-billion fashion industry.

Poor Miley Cyrus . Apparently, she's been kicked off the cover of December Vogue. Unless you've been, say, trekking for several weeks in Bhutan, you undoubtedly recall her rather infamous performance at the recent MTV Video Music Awards . Her jam with Robin Thicke and that giant foam finger was rather ... lascivious. At the time it seemed she wasn't really worked up about the controversy. Ministry of Gossip columnist Christie D'Zurilla reported her as saying: "Me and Robin, the whole time, said, 'You know we're about to make history right now.'" But it sounds as if Vogue editor Anna Wintour was making a little history herself.

"Girlie heaven!" actress Sienna Miller exclaims, stepping into the Times Square digs of Vogue for her stint as cover girl. "The September Issue," a slight, if often riveting, behind-the-scenes documentary, is equally awed by the office's racks of haute couture. But beyond the cutting-edge froufrou, the film is also a portrait of unapologetic girlie power: smart, talented, competitive women working hard at their jobs, beginning with the famously inscrutable and perfectly coiffed Anna Wintour, the magazine's editor in chief for 20 years.
