In addition to her blunt and dark, darkening sunglasses, Anna Wintour has a uniform when it comes to her daily clothes.
The editor in chief of the Vogue holds on to clothing in fit and flare and body-skimming sheaths, mainly by her favorite brands Chanel and Prada. But thanks to Meghan Markle and her parade of colors, that can all be about to change.
During a sit-down conversation at the annual Women in the World summit in New York on Friday morning, Tina Brown asked Wintour how she developed her distinctive uniform and whether a uniform is the best solution for working women. “I think that’s a very personal decision … It’s probably an easier decision to wear the same thing every day and not to worry,” Wintour mused.
However, she admitted, “Maybe it’s a bit boring and time to change. I’ve been thinking a lot about suits lately, so … thanks to the Duchess of Sussex!”
“It is clear that her style is fantastic,” Wintour continued. “When she traveled to Australia and New Zealand, she was very respectful in choosing a lot of unknown Australian designers to wear, which was great. But I think that, more importantly, she really brought modernity to the royal family in a way that is inspiring. “
The admiration of the Condé Nast for Markle’s clothing is quite surprising, given that she hardly ever wears pants. In fact, the last time she was seen in a pair was probably in 2011 when she attended the Sony Ericsson Open in Florida with straight-leg jeans and dark jeans.
Brown, speaking to all of us, said in regard to Wintour’s possible reinvention of small art: “I want to see that.”
