What began as conspiratorial whispers has become semi-confirmed speculation that Anna Wintour will get her U.S. Ambassadorship. I’m sopping this rumor up like gravy on a biscuit. Forget The Devil Wears Prada, Jerry Oppenheimer’s Front Row: Anna Wintour: What Lies Beneath the Chic Exterior of Vogue’s Editor in Chief is the Anna Wintour biography. If you have read this book, then Wintour’s hunger for this high-profile political appointment won’t come as any surprise to you whatsoever. Bitch is hongray for prestige. No doubt Anna hustled for Obama this year. Wintour uncharacteristically humbled herself and curried favor with the President. She used her contacts and power to fill a room with generous political contributors. Anna allegedly tormented the shit out Sarah Jessica Parker until that $40,000 a plate fundraiser met her uncompromising standards. Why is this appointment so potentially exciting? It means someone will replace Anna at Vogue! Here’s hoping the new editor-in-chief can resuscitate a pulse to the lifeless, heartless, humorless, out-of-touch mag. Please Obama, send her to The U.K., or better yet – France. You owe us this one.
