Metro Newspaper 'Hires' Anna Wintour to Promote Paper

The New York edition of commuter paper Metro has hired a bunch of Anna Wintour look-a-likes to promote the paper. The Anna's could be spotted this morning in Bryant Park. Full size images here and here.

The models were dressed in head to toe in Chanel-esque suits and shiny brown shoulder length bobs to honor a famous fashion editor and icon.

This was Metro's final bash as Fashion Week drew to a close ending a great week of parties and fashion.
