Venerable Vogue editor Anna Wintour is celebrating the engagement of her daughter, Late Night with Seth Myers segment producer Bee Shaffer, to film and music-video director Francesco Carrozzini. He is the son of former Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani, who died in December following a year-long illness.
Before she passed away, Wintour vowed to pass on a watch Sozzani had given her as a gift to Carrozzini, 34, and 29-year-old Shaffer’s first-born daughter one day, as a celebration of their decades-long family friendship.
The private couple have been publicly linked since last fall, when they attended a screening of Carrozzini’s documentary on his mother, called Franca: Chaos & Creation. No details about the engagement or wedding plans have been revealed.
