    The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has named its collection of used clothes—a sort of consignment shop one must pay to enter and where nothing is for sale—after Anna Wintour. A trustee of the Met since 1999, the editor of Vogue, artistic director of Condé Nast, and inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada has over the years raised some $125 million for the museum. Earlier this week, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Anna Wintour Costume Center, Michelle Obama delivered a speech. Never have I read one quite like it. The first lady’s presence at the occasion...

    Unless you live in a cave, or flyover country, you know about Lady M’s grand opening of the Costume Institute's new Anna Wintour wing at Metropolitan Museum of Art.Finally, a little well deserved recognition for the art and science of costumes.This  event will no doubt be commemorated for generations to come; Lady M and Anna managed to forever transform “stinko de mayo” from a Mexican holiday commemorating the Mexican army’s implausible victory over the Frogs in the “Battle of Puebla” in 1862 to a holiday celebrating the nuclear Wintour instead. I hope that’s not racist.Before I begin my official coverage...

    Mr Bryan, a former adviser to Bill Clinton who helped raise funds for Mr Obama's re-election campaign, has owed the money to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) since 2006, according to court filings obtained by The Daily Telegraph from Texas. Mr Bryan, who has been in a relationship with Ms Wintour since 1999, was also pursued for outstanding Texas property taxes, and has had energy companies he owns in the state chided by local authorities for falling behind on their financial filings
  • Anna Wintour: Republicans cool to idea of Vogue editor as UK ambassador

    Republicans have attacked President Barack Obama’s consideration of Anna Wintour as America's next ambassador to Britain, with some claiming that the party’s Senators would move to block her appointment. Obama is believed to have placed Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, on a shortlist of candidates to replace Louis Susman, who this week confirmed he was stepping down as US envoy to the Court of St. James. Conservative critics described the potential appointment of Wintour, whose only political experience is raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for Obama’s re-election campaign, as “ludicrous” and “a non-starter”. …

    On the face of it, Ms Wintour, 63, may not appear a natural candidate for international diplomacy. Her reportedly aloof and demanding personality has earned her the nickname “Nuclear Wintour” and inspired the waspish character played by Meryl Streep in the film The Devil Wears Prada. But according to Bloomberg News, Mr Obama has placed her on his short list to safeguard transatlantic relations at the Court of St James. It would be hard to find a better connected ambassador in the fields of fashion and entertainment than Ms Wintour, who was awarded an OBE for services to British journalism...

    What’s going on here? Does Big Guy really want us to go off the fiscal cliff?  All I know is that I heard Val-Jar explaining that since we WON, he can raise taxes on anybody he darn well feels like. And she reminded him that the Republicans need to be punished…for being Republicans.(snip) Butt never mind that: let’s move on to the real news of the day. Anna Wintour for Ambassador?  President Barack Obama is considering nominating Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, to be either his next ambassador to the U.K. or France, as he looks to reward his...

    LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Anna Wintour is becoming quite the fashionable fixture on President Obama's campaign team this election season. The Vogue editrix hit Chicago on Tuesday - flanked by supermodels Iman and Chanel Iman, designer Rachel Roy and Obama campaign manager Jim Messina - for an evening of haute fund-raising at Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios. Wintour was on hand to preside over the Windy City debut of the "Runway to Win" collection, a line of Obama-themed clothes and accessories by designers like Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Beyoncé & Tina Knowles, Tory Burch, Tracy Reese and Narcisco Rodriguez...

    No, not a joke (at least in the traditional sense). Via The Independent: Last week: film. This week: fashion. Doubling down on a strategy which incites critics as much as it seems to excite supporters, Barack Obama will devote part of yet another busy week to soliciting endorsements and campaign dollars from Americas A-list. The President will attend a series of high-profile fundraisers with key figures from the fashion industry, led by Anna Wintour, the British-born editor of Vogue magazine, who yesterday was tipped as a possible future candidate for US Ambassador to London. Speculative reports suggest that Wintour, 62,...
