Glamour’s newly appointed editor-in-chief Samantha Barry isn’t quite ready to discuss her future plans for the title, but was more than happy to answer some random question for us over the weekend at the Jonathan Simkhai show. We also asked our new front row fave to clear up one of the more amusing rumors spreading around Condé HQ.
How do you like your pizza?
Pepperoni, jalapeño, extra spicy.
Who was your childhood crush?
We used to watch a lot of Australian soaps in Ireland, and there was an actor Dieter Brummer from Home and Away that I liked or Damon Albarn from Blur.
Have you ever met a leprechaun?
No, but I’m looking for my pot of gold!
Do people in New York have trouble understanding your accent?
I would like to think not, except when I try to say things with “th.” This, that, and those are where we usually get into trouble.
What’s the last thing you liked on Instagram?
Probably something food-related, to be honest.
What food accounts do you like?
I’m a very big fan [of accounts] that have steak or cheese.
What time do you go to bed?
Eleven or midnight. I’m an early riser! I usually get up by 5 or 5:30am.
What are you doing in the morning?
I’m working — my brain is at its best!
Do you watch any morning shows?
All of them. I watch CNN, Morning Joe, The Today Show, GMA. I flick between them all. And NPR!
Have you ever read a harlequin novel?
No! That’s not my style.
What’s your favorite street in New York?
I love any street in the West Village.
There’s a rumor that Anna Wintour is your godmother!
That’s absolutely ludicrous and hilarious. If it is true, I’ve missed out on 36 years of presents!
