Anna Wintour talks Karl Lagerfeld, the story of the Met Gala, philanthropy and more

On the latest episode of the Table For Two with Bruce Bozzi podcast, the legendary hospitality figure is joined by Anna Wintour for lunch at adored West Village eatery Via Carota. Admitting she’s “more of a breakfast person” and doesn’t usually leave One World Trade for lunch as it’s in an isolating neighborhood—plus why leave that spectacular view—it was a rare and intimate interview with the Vogue doyenne spoke candidly about everything from the birth of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund post-9/11, why fundraising for HIV/AIDS initiatives is so close to her heart, and how the Met Gala has taken on a life of its own over the last 25 years with her at the helm—particularly since the public interest in the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition in 2011. “The Met was because of Oscar De La Renta, who was my great friend,” she explained to Bozzi, adding that the funds raised on the First Monday of May is the only fundraising event to sustain the Costume Institute year-round. “They called me a million years ago and said would you ever consider helping the Costume Institute. I had been aware of The Met and the work they did when I was first living in New York and was a junior editor at New York Magazine. I remember going to The Met…and being awed by what Mrs. Vreeland had done, it was the most glamorous event I was ever at. I couldn’t afford to go to the dinner! I was just at the cocktails with (late colleague) Henry Post. When Oscar called me, there was no leadership….it was not a grand plan, I just did it because if Oscar called you always said yes. I was very naive. I didn’t realize what I was stepping into.”
