Could Vogue editrix Anna Wintour soon be holding a new title?
Rumor has it we may be calling her U.S. Ambassador Wintour following her dedicated support of President Obama's reelection campaign.
More after the jump!
"As part of a second-term shakeup of his diplomatic corps, President Obama is considering the appointment of Vogue editor-in-chief and major campaign donor Anna Wintour
as U.S. ambassador to Great Britain or France.
The news, which has been confirmed by ABC News, was first reported by Bloomberg News' Hans Nichols, who said Wintour, 63, is among a handful of top Obama financiers interested in the posts, which have become choice presidential rewards for elite political supporters.
Vogue spokeswoman Megan Salt would not confirm whether Wintour has been approached about a diplomatic job, or whether she'd consider it, telling ABC News that Wintour is 'very happy with her current job.'
Obama is also said to be eyeing campaign finance chairman Matthew Barzun and investment banker Marc Lasry for diplomatic appointments, according to Bloomberg.
All three figures - Wintour, Barzun and Lasry - are Obama bundlers, each raising more than $500,000 for his 2012 re-election bid, according to estimates provided by the Obama campaign.
Rumors of an official post for Wintour have swirled for months, following her high-profile role in hosting star-studded Obama fundraising events and pushing a grassroots campaign fundraising contest.
Wintour, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and designer Tom Ford hosted a $15,000-per-plate fundraiser for Obama in London Sept. 19, according to an invitation obtained by the Sunlight Foundation.
She also co-hosted a $40,000-per-plate fundraising dinner at the New York City home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker in June and a $35,800-a-head event at the Connecticut home of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in August. Obama attended both events."
What do you think, Instincters? Would you support an Anna Wintour appointment? Or should stick with striking terror into the world of fashion?
