Anna Wintour Was Pranked By Ukranian Journalist

The reign of terror put upon the worlds of entertainment and fashion continues. For his latest stunt, Ukrainian media personality Vitalii Sediuk ambushed Anna Wintour during Paris Fashion Week. The prank occurred on Oct. 5 outside the Chanel fashion show as the Vogue editor was on her way out. A huge crowd of news crews, photographers, and fellow fashionistas witnessed Sediuk jump the barricade and approach an unsuspecting Wintour.

"Anna, will you take me on the cover of Vogue?" Sediuk asked before Wintour's bodyguards hauled him away from her. Perhaps like Wintour at that surreal moment, you might be wondering: Who is Vitalii Sediuk? The "journalist" is notorious for crashing major events all over the world, from movie premieres, to runway shows, and even the Grammy Awards. In recent years, Sediuk has pulled this type of inappropriate and truly unfunny prank on several A-list stars.

Sediuk has targeted big name stars for several years in a series of stunts pulled from Sascha Baron Cohen's Borat handbook — minus the celeb's permission. In May 2014, Sediuk crawled under America Ferrara's dress at the Cannes Film Festival. A few days later, he attacked Brad Pitt during the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent. He reportedly faced four charges including assault and battery following the incident. Unfortunately, that was neither his first nor his last attempt at pulling a fast one over celebrities.

Watch the video below of Sediuk ambushing Anna Wintour at Paris Fashion Week (happens around the 4:50 mark).

Aside from getting Wintour, here are some of Sediuk's most recent fashion-related shenanigans:

Miranda Kerr

Just two days after the Chanel show, Sediuk planted a kiss on Miranda Kerr at the Louis Vuitton show. Not. Cool.


At last year's PFW, the fashion crowd got an eyeful after Sediuk photobombed Ciara while wearing a gold shirt and black thong outside Valentino.

Kim Kardashian

While arriving to the Balmain show last year, the prankster tackled Kim Kardashian as she made her way inside.

Prabal Gurung

Wearing a gold crown and not much else, Sediuk went streaking down the runway during the designer's fall 2014 presentation at New York Fashion Week. No one but Sediuk knows who his next target is, but everyone's wishing he'll just stop this nonsense altogether.
