NEW YORK – What's behind those shades, Anna?

Vogue Editor Anna Wintour is rarely seen without dark glasses at fashion shows. In an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes," airing Sunday, the elusive magazine legend explains why she likes to hide her eyes.

According to Wintour, her signature shades act as "armor." She says if she's enjoying a runway show — or bored out of her mind — nobody will notice.

Indeed, a hush might fall over the crowd should Wintour show emotion. Since becoming Vogue editor more than 20 years ago, Wintour has forged a role as one of the most powerful players in fashion.

At 59, Wintour, who inspired the best-seller "The Devil Wears Prada," plans to hold on to her post.
