Anna Wintour Shades Melania Trump in New Economist Podcast Interview

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!

Anna Wintour is putting politics before fashion. Give me a break Melanie was a fashion model and is gorgeous in all her choices of fashion and Ann Wintour knows that she needs her job that’s why she is a liar and won’t tell you the truth. I have been in Fashion in for over 25 years what a disgrace and I am embarrassed of the Fashion Industry. Stop asking her about First Lady Trump she will never be honest just like here cronies in the party she likes!!!

The bad grammar, bad spelling and totally illogical reasoning in Andrea’s comment is typical of a Trump supporter.

And someone who actually worked in fashion for 25 years would know that it is ANNA Wintour, not ‘ANN’.

You think in stereotypes and seem to be a combative, rude and unpleasant person. She did write “Anna” in the first sentence and “Ann” later in the post was obviously a typo.
Unfortunately Mrs. Obama is a very large muscular person and does not always look good in her clothes. Who does? I could go through picture files online and find plenty of examples for you but it’s really not that important. Those hideous thigh high boots though.
Mrs. Trump can be a little safe and bland in her fashion choices but carries herself like the model she is. The former model, middle aged wife and mother…and current First Lady of the United States.
ANNA has a great haircut and is the most arrogant person alive.
Have a good day then.
