Not unexpected really but the Sheldonian suddenly swelled with wannabe Anne Hathaways (‘The Devil Wears Pravda”) for Alexandra Shulman.
Shulman, in case you didn’t know, has been editor-in-chief of British Vogue for the last 25 years so inevitably the composition of her audience was willowy young daughters accompanied by less willowy mothers keen to see their offspring aspire to similarly giddy heights.
And talking of ‘giddy heights’, even the Sheldonian’s upper most tiers were packed with fashionistas
Reassuring then that Shulman was able to admit that while not personally obsessed by scrubbing up to Anna Wintour standards every day (the doyenne of Vogue editors), ‘I can pull it out of the hat if I really need to…’.
Incidentally, worthy of mention in despatches is Sali Hughes, the beauty journalist and broadcaster whose task it was to interview Shulman - classy job.
