Wintour does Letterman.

Wearing Carolina Herrera, an impeccably dressed Anna Wintour removed her trademark shades tonight to go eye to eye with David Letterman and promote The September Issue.

The interview began lightheartedly with a tongue-in-cheek critique of the host's socks, but grew slightly awkward as Letterman alluded to the frivolity of high fashion during the current recession. Despite Letterman's attempts to corner her, Wintour remained composed and cheekily defended the industry, Vogue, and herself against the digs. When Letterman asked what a person whose fashion budget was slashed to $20 by economic hardship might do with the money, Wintour replied; "Well, you could buy lipstick."

While the purported "ice queen" didn't exactly shake her elitist image [wincing more than once at the mention of her upcoming appearance at Macy's Queens during Fashion's Night Out], she managed to come off surprisingly affable, if not a bit mischievous...and not unlike someone you'd like to hang out and talk style with.

As long as you didn't work for her.
