Designer Jason Wu Actually Makes Anna Wintour Smile.

At the most feverishly anticipated show of the season, Michelle Obama's favorite designer Jason Wu (she donned his gowns Inauguration night and on Vogue's March cover) sent a slew of models sporting crowns down his Fall/Winter '09 runway. After nursing a barely visible smile throughout the 26-year-old designer's presentation, the toughest name in the business, Vogue editor Ms. Wintour, greeted the show's finale with both a grin and applause. On a separate note, two or three of the infamous editrix's assistants have either quit or been fired in recent weeks and Conde Nast is looking for replacements. Anyone up for channeling Annie Hathaway?
