Anna Wintour Being Considered as Ambassador to U.K. or France

Anna Wintour loves politics, and politics love her back. Well, at least President Barack Obama does. According to Ad Age, Obama might name Wintour the next ambassador to the United Kingdom or France. This, we suppose, is what you get for raising a boat load of money for the two-term president.

Naturally some are skeptical of Wintour’s ability to be a capable ambassador. Susan Johnson, the president of the American Foreign Service Association, told Ad Age that the Vogue editor was “clearly an intelligent, energetic, capable, attractive, elegant person,” but “having experience in the practice of diplomacy and international relations is really a great advantage.”

We bet Johnson wouldn’t say that to Wintour’s face.
