DADDY'S GIRL Weiss Before her Monday night cameo on The Hills (and select sightings of her bossily sauntering through Fashion Week in Manhattan), who the hell had ever heard of Teen Vogue "super-intern" Emily Weiss? Now, thanks to her snooty reality-TV (and possibly real-life) persona, we can't get enough of her. The wealthy 21-year-old from Wilton, Connecticut, captivated us from the moment she swanned in on The Hills to help the show's intern-star, Lauren Conrad, plan a business dinner and dropped knowledge of chinoiserie and rare peonies.
While we expect a certain level of pretense from fashion editors, an intern so fluent in couture snobbery boggles the mind. Furthermore, we cannot remember a Condé Nast intern in recent history who has been allowed to speak to the press, appear in a magazine spread, and pose in national photo ops with top fashion editors. Well, Bee Shaffer aside. (For the record, Teen Vogue wouldn't let Weiss speak to Radar when we called for comment.)
Something is up with Emily Weiss. And we intend to get to the bottom of it. After the jump, a rundown of what we know so far about the pampered, oh-so-strenuous life of the latest Teen Vogue drone.
