James Cordon Dresses Like Anna Wintour At National Portrait Gallery

If there’s anything James Corden loves, it’s having a good time making people laugh! From early beginnings in Gavin and Stacy, through Lesbian Vampire Kille… nah let’s forget about that, to The Late Late Show, he has made a career in comedy.

It’s not easy to mock Anna Wintour. She’s a tough cookie that doesn’t give much away. But this was no problem for Corden who turned up to the American Portrait Gala, held Sunday night at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., dressed as the Vogue editor.

“Anna Wintour has not had much impact on my life,” Corden quipped while wearing a long black coat, a pair of identical dark shades, and a blond page-boy wig. “Seriously, I have never felt more powerful than walking backstage dressed like this,” he continued. “It’s incredible. I’m like, ‘Bezos, get me a coffee!’”

Jezz Bezos, the CEO and founder of Amazon, was also in attendance, having been honoured that night.

To the shock of a lot, it became public knowledge last night just show log Corden and Wintour have been friends. Turns out the two have known each other for a decade, as Corden recalled in his speech.

When he made the leap from the UK to the US, Wintour promised he’d have at least one friend in her. See? She’s a big sotfie really.

“I know that people find it odd that we’re friends,” Corden said to a reporter. “Because she’s high fashion and I’m me. But we have a lot of common interests and I love her dearly, and I will always be grateful for the support that she’s given me and my career.”

“I wouldn’t dare say whether you or Meryl did it better,” Wintour later said to Corden, referring to Corden’s Wintour cosplay and Meryl Streep’s performance in The Devil Wears Prada. “But I can say that I’ve never in my life felt so incredibly flattered and yet, at the same time, frightened.”

Ah, to be famous and full of banter! Keep doing you, guys.
