Plum Sykes wrote an article about her for Vogue
W loves her so much they put her on 9 covers @ once
(note: Plum Sykes' articles are by far vogue's best (they're more snarky, gossipy, & interesting than vogue's usuals) and Bergdorf Blondes is by far the literary world's best...okay I think I have to add that that last part isn't totally true because you'll think I'm a total airhead since I already listed vogue as my favorite book in my profile, seriously I don't think I hate listing my favorites because I can't think of any single book/movie/musical genre/color/food that I want to be defined by)
