Vogue's fancy new offices at Condé Nast's new HQ reportedly have an issue that's not glamorous at all. Sources tell Gawker that there's a major rat infestation on Vogue's floors. The rodent problem might delay Vogue's editorial department's move because they are seriously worried the rats might destroy the products in the fashion closet. And Gawker's sources said that Anna Wintour told staffers that they must guarantee that her office doesn't have any rats before she will walk through the door.
