Who knew that walking into a J.Crew store would be the thing to get Anna Wintour to relax? She enjoyed a quick round of charades with Eddie Borgo, Billy Reid and Prabal Gurung last night at the celebration in their honor. Check out our Gallery for more evidence of a smiling and animated Anna having the time of her life! Darling, you deserve it.

John Mayer wins the award for the best Terry Richardson impression of the week—just barely. The singer gives us two thumbs up, but fails to go all the way home and try on Terry's glasses to truly seal the deal. We still applaud his efforts.

We can only imagine what Billy Reid said to Anna Wintour that gave our beloved editrix such a perplexed look. The two met up at J.Crew last night for a party celebrating the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Award winner—and runners-up Prabal Gurung and Eddie Borgo and appear to have a shocking chat. In other Anna activities: Page Six reports that she got quite emotional at Grace Coddington's 70th-birthday party at Indochine last week. Insiders spilled that she choked up giving a speech to her longtime creative director and called her the "heart and the soul of the magazine." Aww. Others who came out to celebrate Grace included Naomi Campbell, Marc Jacobs, Bruce Weber, Helmut Lang, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and totally random...Seth Meyers from SNL. Really?

Billy Reid Brings Back K-Swiss, Considers Donald Trump

Chic headed to Billy Reid's semi-new Bond Street showroom on Monday evening for a little shindig (no pig roast this time!) to celebrate the launch of his new collaboration with K.Swiss. It's always a pleasure to catch up with the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award winner while he's in town from his native Alabama. 

 

Billy Reid and K. Swiss....together at last! How'd this happen?

Honestly, It was selfishl. I had these old pair of K-Swiss tennis shoes that I've had since the eighties. I sent (publicist) Megan Maguire Steele the shoe and said, "Can you call the people at K-Swiss, I want to remake the shoe." One thing led to another, and we redeveloped it. They were very accommodating. Thank goodness I have a new pair of shoes.

 

Anything you don't want to come back?

A hell of a lot. When I was a kid, my mom owned a clothing store, and she used to give me women's shirts to wear. The buttons were on the wrong side. None of my friends recognized it, but I knew. She also gave me a pair of vinyl pants, which were the most uncomfortable thing. I wore them once. 

 

Are you doing a store in the Hamptons?

We're thinking about it, we'd love to. I'd want the store to feel like a home, and that takes time. 

 

What does Billy Reid watch on TV?

My kids watch the Disney Channel. I'm typically watching sports of any kind. 

 

Let's talk politics! What do you think of Donald Trump potentially running for president?

I like anything that shakes it up, but I disagree with a lot of what he has to say. I think there is good in getting people outside of the political process to bring something to the conversation. I don't agree with the conversation he's having, but he is certainly becoming a "politician."

It was only a matter of time before poor, innocent Kate Middleton became the target of a little ribbing. Anne Clark has created a cheeky Tumblr, Kate Middleton For The Win, that captions photos of the future princess "saying" all kinds of bitchy things. Whether you love all this Royalvasion or it bores you silly, the site is anything but common, love.

The May issue of Vogue Paris just hit stands, and Emmanuelle's Alt's issue deux covergirl is none other than rabbit-lovin' Kate Moss. Gisele Bunchden, if you'll remember, graced the April issue. Is it safe to say...no celebrities?!
