Anna Wintour threw some expert shade at Melania Trump during a new interview with Anne McElvoy for The Economist’s podcast. When asked if she valued Melania as a fashion ambassador, Wintour chose to extol the virtues of another first lady instead.
“Well, I think First Lady Michelle Obama really was so incredible in every decision she made about fashion,” Wintour said. “She supported young American designers. She supported designers, indeed, from all over the world. She was the best ambassador this country could possibly have in many ways, obviously, way beyond fashion.”
“But she’s not the first lady now,” McElvoy pressed. “So what about the one you’ve got now?”
“To me, [Obama] is the example that I admire,” Wintour replied.
The shade of it all!
