Anna-Wintour-Bee-FEATURE

Two Vogue editors/mothers have been doing some serious match making.

It seems match-making, as well as mules, were on the agenda for Vogue’s October issue.

Anna Wintour’s glamourous daughter, Bee Shaffer is reportedly dating the dashing son of Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani – a match made in fashion heaven!

Francesco Carrozzini, who has directed music videos for the likes of Lenny Kravitz and Beyoncé, has just previewed his documentary on his Editor-in-Chief mother, called Franca: Chaos & Creation.

Bee was spotted at the New York screening of the film last week, along with her own mother who hosted the event. You can just imagine Franca and Anna plotting around the seating plan!

A fashion insider told Page Six: “Apparently, Bee and Francesco have been together for a while.”

Francesco, 34, has previously had an on-and-off again relationship with singer Lana Del Rey. And Bee, 29, has been linked to another well-known son, entertainment and sports reporter Ben Lyons, whose father is film critic Jeffrey Lyons.

Francesco’s New York townhouse shares a private garden in the famous MacDougal-Sullivan Gardens Historic District where Anna Wintour also has her home.

Just in September, Francesco reminisced about growing up in the private gardens, saying: “You could go across the garden to your friends’ house in a way that’s so, so rare in New York.”

We can almost picture Bee and Francesco’s first date in the garden, she wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress and he an Armani suit. Divine!

Other garden neighbours include Anna’s close friend and famed Australian film director Baz Luhrmann, who was also at last week’s screening of Franca: Chaos & Creation.

Oh to live in that backyard!
