One week with Anna Wintour costs $42,500
Monday 03 May 2010
A charity auction, offering a one-week internship at US
Vogue, has closed at $42,500 on April 29.
Advertised as "the Opportunity of a Lifetime," and promising that "Just Being Near [editor-in-chief Anna Wintour] Will Make You Chic," the auction opened April 8 and was estimated to fetch $10,000, which already was deemed a vast amount of money by those who reported on it.
Now, this amount has been quadrupled by an up-to-now-unknown bidder, who will also get a few books, a September Issue DVD, a meet-and-greet with Wintour, and a visit to one of the shows at the upcoming New York fashion week.
But no matter how crazy this may sound, at least it's all for a good cause: the proceeds will benefit the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights.
