The fashion world is abuzz with the thought that Vogue editrix Anna Wintour is to be dispatched to the Court of St. James, London, or Paris to become Obama’s new ambassador. Not known for her diplomacy or, if we are to believe The Devil Wears Prada, her people skills, fur loving Ms. Wintour has been the subject of repeated whispers she is about to be bumped from her Vogue lair by the editor of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld. (Page Six dismisses this as nonsense, quoting one anon “fashion source” saying, “I don’t see how you could give it to Carine. She barely speaks English.”) If Wintour is to return to her native London as America’s chicest ambassador, it would put an end to competing rumors that the post is to be filled by Caroline Kennedy, if she doesn’t become a senator, following in the footsteps of her defeatist grandfather, Joe.
