Editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour appeared on The Colbert Report last night to promote the Met's Costume Institute exhibit "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations." Wintour held her own as she discussed a range of topics with Stephen Colbert, including President Obama's endorsement of gay marriage, her thoughts on Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli, and potentially bobbing for french fries with the Comedy Central host. Highlights from her appearance:

Thoughts on the President backing gay marriage:
"I think it was a long-overdue endorsement and we’re glad that he’s come forward, finally."

On clothing and how it reflects the culture of a given time period:
"If you look at a great fashion picture say of the sixties it tells you just as much about what was going on in the world as a headline in the New York Times. Fashion is self expression."

On The Devil Wears Prada:
Stephen: I don’t really trust Prada. My understanding is the devil wears Prada, and this is a Christian nation, madame!
Anna: That movie was so last year. I mean, we've gone way beyond that movie.
