While most of the talk leading up to fashion week has been about young bloggers and unwelcome celebs, there's one editrix who can bring things back around to more important matters, like one model's hair color.

Anna Wintour apparently made it clear that she is not a fan of Maggie Rizer's pale-on-pale look. The model -- who shot to fame with dyed red locks -- has since gone back to sporting her natural blonde strands.

"Anna said, 'I'd like to see Maggie as a redhead,"" a source told the New York Post.

And what Wintour wants, Wintour gets.

Apparently, New York native Rizer, who currently fronts the Dooney & Bourke campaign, headed to the salon today for a dye job.

"Blond is her natural color, and she really doesn't want to go back to being a redhead. But she felt enormous pressure to do it," the source added.

As for Anna, her power over the industry extends far beyond beauty. Wintour spearheaded the Fashion's Night Out initiative and the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund with an iron resolve.

But perhaps red locks are the way to Anna's heart? No doubt we'll be seeing her at New York Fashion Week wth flame-haired Vogue Creative Director, Grace Coddington.
