Gossip: How ‘Vogue’ Staffers Know If They Have Anna Wintour’s Approval; Howard Stern Ready To Quit?

In honor of the Vogue‘s 125th anniversary, the app debuted digital stickers, including bitmoji-style icons of a coffee cup, a pizza, an iPhone and, most importantly, an animated Post-it with Vogue’s most coveted feedback: “AWOK.”

“No writer/editor/stylist/art director ever forgets their first AWOK, which stands for ‘Anna Wintour OK,’” explained Vogue.com’s fashion news director, Chioma Nnadi, of the insider acronym.

Not-so-great feedback from Wintour, including “Keep Trying,” “No,” or what Nnadi describes as the dreaded “See Me,” may be just as memorable for different reasons.

Howard Stern Admits He’s ‘Burned Out’ Two Months After Illness

In a shocking admission, Howard Stern alluded to the idea that his radio days could soon be over!

The Shock Jock — who had David Letterman on his show Wednesday morning — publicly observed retirement had done plenty of good to the former Late Show host.

“When I look at you, I see a man who looks relaxed and younger than when you were even on TV,” Stern expressed to Letterman. “And I fantasize that if I retire I would have this youthful look. I feel a bit burned out.”

Stern asked Letterman if he feels more “relaxed and refreshed” now that he is no longer hosting The Late Show.

“Here’s the thing — everything was alright until I had a birthday,” Letterman replied, adding that turning 70 in April was when he stopped feeling so “relaxed and refreshed…because at 70, what I’ve learned is that old people drop dead.”

At the end of the segment, Stern strangely asked Letterman not to leave because he wanted to tell him something off the air.

“I’m going to turn off the microphones so I can tell you a proper goodbye personally; and I want to tell you something personal that I don’t want to tell you on air. ”
