I must come clean. I hardly read Vanity Fair so can't really comment on Saltzman's work, but I can certainly comment on her style. She is a woman of trademarks, namely that gorgeous mane of hair and her sleek collum dresses. Deceptively simple.
And Tom Ford adores her.
Read How to lose friends and alienate people by Toby Young. She's in it alot and has the great line 'Me , Myself and I' when someone asks her why she wants three very hard to get tickets to a fashion show( for Toby , No less )
Big deal she does the celeb crap. If that's all she does I'd like to see what she's really like when she's actually working on a shoot. I hope she doesn't break a sweat. To me,her title is too novelty to and attaches an unnecessary importance to what she really does at that mag. Because frankly she doesn't do much at all.
On elizabeth's desk is a framed picture of Si Newhouse , who owns Conde Nast , the publishing company which in turn publishes Vanity Fair. In the picture Si is holding a baby. The baby is Elizabeth Saltzman. She points this out to everyone who works at Vanity Fair.
Well,that certainly answers alot of questions. Must be lovely not to have worked hard and struggles to gain success in this business. ick! I can't stand when people are given positions purely on the basis of their status as an elitist. Kind of like the Sykes sisters-they never worked a day but because their family is so well-known(and well off)they were offered their current positions.
And I find the fact that she shows this picture to everyone a wee bit pathetic and desperate...almost as if she wants people to realise how important she really is.
