What do you think of when we say ‘Anna Wintour’? Her fierce bob? Unrivalled fashion clout? M.A.S.S.I.V.E sun glasses? Well, now one of the most respected fashion editors in the world can add another string to her bow: gay rights campaigner.
Wintour spoke out in May in favour of marriage equality, joining a host of notable New Yorkers which included Barbara Bush and Mayor Michael Bloomberg in recording a testimonial for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
In her own words: “As far as I’m concerned, having the right to say ‘I Do’ is as fundamental as the right to vote,” Her ‘straight talking’ has led to the HRC giving her the Ally for Equality award, to be given out at an awards ceremony on February 4.
Next question: what will she wear? Something similar to these outfits, we imagine.
