As a recent White House press conference would suggest–you know, that one during which a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney “Has the President seen The Devil Wears Prada?”–people can’t get enough of this Anna Wintour ambassador story. And it’s still going. This rumor’s got legs. Legs in stilettos, people.
A new report in The Hollywood Reporter suggests that Wintour is still in the running for an ambassadorship–the one in France, not the UK.
We don’t hear about Shelby Bryan, Anna Wintour’s bf since 1999, very often.
However, the bespectacled millionaire was pretty forthcoming during a recent interview with the Daily Telegraph, in which he was inevitably asked about the rumors that President Obama is considering Wintour for an ambassador job.
Donald Trump went on Fox News to continue his rumor-based campaign to get Anna Wintour an ambassador job. We don’t think we’ve heard anyone gush this much about Anna Wintour–ever.
Despite their disparate political beliefs and the fact that there is no actual confirmation that Anna Wintour is being considered for an ambassador position, Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to endorse her.
While some outlets mocked the idea of Anna Wintour becoming an ambassador, others (including us) thought she’d make a great ambassador, if she were interested, which she probably isn’t.

So we thought it was worth looking into a bit more. If you thought our super fun and super serious GChat conversations with Current TV’s Jo Piazza would go away after the election, you’re wrong! Aren’t you happy? In this latest installment, we discuss why Anna Wintour would be an awesome ambassador. Should she want the job. Jo thinks she should. Why? Read on.
The Vogue EIC has always denied having any personal political ambitions, but a new report in Bloomberg suggests that, now that Obama has been re-elected, she may have an actual job offer to turn down.
Anna Wintour’s ‘Runway to Win‘ fundraising efforts for Obama–a fashion line sold online featuring everything from scarves to totes to dog collars designed by fashion’s most well-known designers and celebrities–became an easy target for Obama critics.
During the campaign, the Republican party released a video paroadying the MasterCard “Priceless” campaign: “Watching the Obama campaign host a ritzy NYC fashion show while 12 million Americans remain out of work?

Only it worked. Like gangbusters.
18-year-old Peter Brant II may already be fashion royalty and a billionaire in the making–but at the end of the day he still has to answer to his parents: Peter Brant and Stephanie Seymour, who were not exactly amused by their son’s ‘contingency plan’ to ‘Kill Obama haha.‘
