There's no question that Anna Wintour is the most influential person in fashion. The legendary America Vogue editor-in-chief hangs with Karl Lagerfeld, can make anyone get a haircut, constantly blows minds, and has even been impersonated by (arguably) the second most influential woman in fashion, Kim Kardashian. Speaking of impersonations, a man named Ryan Raftery plays Wintour in a hit NYC musical, which he's bringing to LA January 16th and January 17th at 8pm.
Taking place at Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Feliz, Ryan Raftery Is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion is a "fierce jukebox biomusical" that highlights a day in the life of the great bobbed one, fueled by "popular music and an astounding measure of creative license." The show even touches on the controversial Kimye cover, which might be worth it alone.
