This tweet was posted first thing this morning….and it got some people buzzing:
Editorial job opening of the year (I correct: of the decade) coming up soon. Stay tuned. #vogue— Wolfgang Blau (@wblau) July 10, 2018
Here’s the follow-up:

Was he trolling? Yes, sort of. This is what ended up happening:
I wish I was qualified for that job.
It was a good half-troll though, non? Because of the timing:
Back in April, Page Six broke the news that Anna Wintour would step down from Vogue after her daughter Bee Schaffer’s wedding. I was reminded of this a few weeks ago after re-watching The Devil Wears Prada – remember, Miranda Priestly namechecks Page Six in the movie. When Page Six’s report about Anna first came out, Condé Nast emphatically denied it. Bee just got married on Saturday.
So we are still standing by to see if Page Six was actually right.
We’re on standby all day, actually. As I’m writing this, we’re waiting for the flypast at Buckingham Palace to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force. The Queen and other senior members of the royal family are expected on the balcony including the Cambridges and the Sussexes. Prince Harry and Royal Meghan will then make their way to Ireland. France plays Belgium this afternoon. Serena’s about to play on centre court this morning. I’m so f-cking nervous, which is an idiotic thing to say as I’m staring at my laptop eating Oreo cereal (DID YOU EVEN KNOW THIS WAS A THING?!), comfortably blogging on the dining table. Yes, I am working from home today. Yes, as noted yesterday, her previous Wimbledon wins this year came while I was at work. Yes, I am superstitious as f-ck. But no, my superstitious ass has no impact on the performance of the Greatest Of All Time… (whispers)… right?
That said, what we are no longer standing by for: they’ve been rescued! All of twelve of the boys trapped in that cave in Thailand, and their coach, are out!
Yours in gossip,
