WATCH: Selita Ebanks On Being ‘Dismissed’ By Anna Wintour
Selita Ebanks is totally having her moment right now. “Runaway” is the greatest thing since sliced bread (or something else really awesome), and she has rap’s most fashionable star on her arm. Things weren’t always so peachy for Selita though. She recently told MTV‘s Sway that she was dissed by Anna Wintour when she was a teenager.
She was called into the Vogue offices after completing a cover shoot for Teen Vogue, and traveled from her Staten Island high school to Condé Nast HQ during a snowstorm. Wearing corduroys, a plaid shirt and a pair of Tims, Selita did not impress the infamous ice queen.
I walk into the office, I got maybe two steps into the room, and I look and it’s amazing Ms. Anna Wintour. She goes [mimes a wave] and dismisses me.
Anna is the worst sometimes. Selita’s cover never ran, and she hasn’t shot for Vogue since. Whatever. Team Selita!
