Just when we thought Anna Wintour and company were too cool for reality television, it seems Wintour’s baby, Fashion’s Night Out, may become a reality TV show on CBS. Unlike major fashion magazines like Elle and Marie Claire, Vogue has stayed out of the reality show limelight and for good reason. Why dumb down a publication and lose the aura of mystery by letting everyone see you in your element?

The other sponsors of Fashion’s Night Out include CFDA and New York & Co., so maybe this accounts for the reality show spin. Why put so much money into an event to NOT have it pop up on television? A Fashion’s Night Out rep commented, “We are in talks with CBS, but nothing has been confirmed.”
Meanwhile Bravo told Page Six that they would love to work with Vogue. I bet. I can just imagine what Bravo would do a fashion week documentary. Something tells me CBS would give the potential show a very fresh perspective rather than Bravo’s constant dramatic editing.
