It looks like the odds are in favor of Anna Wintour nabbing that covetable UK Ambassador position after all.
Paddy Power, Ireland’s oldest and most successful book-making site, is laying odds on the diplomatic lineup, and Anna Wintour has emerged as the second most likely candidate for the job. The online betting site puts gives her a 6/4 chance of landing the job.
Other familiar names to make the list? The increasingly political Sarah Jessica Parker and movie mogul Harvey Weinstein–though the numbers aren’t exactly in their favor. Both were given a paltry 500/1 chance in getting the position. (But hey, America does love an underdog right?)
The clear frontrunner, however, is American businessman Matthew Barzun, who is known both for his work at CNET Networks and as a volunteer on the Obama campaign, and who held the position of Swedish Ambassador from 2009 to 2011.
He might be the safest bet, but personally, we’re putting our money on Wintour.
