Anna Wintour to Hillary Clinton: This is America, not Saudi Arabia.
Oh smell her! You simply do not, I repeat, do not, mess with the Queen Bee! Remember how Hillary Rodham Clinton was a NO-SHOW on her Vogue cover shoot last year? Well, here’s something from Anna Wintour herself, printed on the Editor’s letter in Vogue:
"Imagine my amazement, then, when I learned that Hillary Clinton, our only female president hopeful, had decided to steer clear of our pages at this point in her campaign for fear of looking too feminine. The notion that a contemporary woman must look mannish in order to be taken seriously as a seeker of power is frankly dismaying."
"This is America, not Saudi Arabia. It’s also 2008: Margaret Thatcher may have looked terrific in a blue power suit, but that was 20 years ago. I do think Americans have moved on from the power-suit mentality, which served as a bridge for a generation of women to reach boardrooms filled with men. Political campaigns that do not recognize this are making a serious misjudgment."
I wonder who Anna will vote for this year. Obama, anyone?
