Anna Wintour was spotted this week overseeing a decor overhaul at Sarah Jessica Parker’s West Village townhouse in NY before President Obama’s visit.
Wintour, who’s reportedly in the running for the US ambassadorship to Britain was photographed with her daughter Bee Shaffer paying a visit to Parker and Matthew Broderick’s house just as movers were moving furniture in and out to prep for yesterday’s $80,000-per-couple fund-raiser hosted by Wintour and the SJP.
Rumours say that Anna Wintour though SJP’s furniture was a bit ‘tired’shall we say ….“Some of the stuff in the house was shabby chic, and let’s just say, Anna wanted less shabby, and more chic,” the source added.While Wintour was at SJP’s house she was reportedly strolling nearby with her kids and a nanny, staying well out of the way.
After Anna’s work was done, sources said Parker and her brood had to adjust their routines. “They’ve had to live upstairs in the house,” said a source. “It’s not like this is an event at the Trump SoHo — it’s the place where [Parker] feeds her kids.”
Cleaners was spotted scrubbing door handles and windows outside the house. Yesterday, dozens of plump, white roses were delivered along with rental chairs, and a gardener planted mini- ferns out front.
We’d love to have seen before and after pics of that project!
