Hell hath frozen over–or some would say. Tough boss or not, Anna Wintour’s participation in the ALS ice bucket challenge, as prompted by daughter Bee Shaffer’s nomination of her Vogue editor mother, confirms my long-time theory that Ms. Wintour is, in fact, a sweetheart.
Surrounded by a gaggle of children in her family, Ms. Wintour’s face cracks a huge anticipatory smile before she’s even had the not one, but two buckets of ice water dumped on her perfectly coiffed head of hair, sunglasses, and sundress. She darts out of view soon after, but not before we see her infamous bob in its un-dry state.
Unsurprisingly, Wintour accepted the challenge and made a donation, and then nominated tennis pro Roger Federer and actor Dominic West. Guys–you have 24 hours.
