Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, the most powerful woman -- or possibly person -- in the entire fashion industry, has come out and publically supported Barack Obama. She's also often covered the great taste of First Lady Michelle Obama in Vogue magazine, and this has got conversative (to say the least) radio host Glenn Beck -- who, we all know, really knows his fashion -- fightin' mad.
Beck made some controversial remarks about Wintour on his radio show as a result of her political inclinations -- since we doubt her penchant for fur coats got him ticked off. Beck, bringing up 20th Century Fox's The Devil Wears Prada, said Wintour "was the devil part. She was the person who was actually in the movie treating her co-workers like garbage, waiting on her every whim. She is what [Obama] says capitalists are like all the time. She is everything she says the Republicans are, and she's an Obama supporter."
She's the character "the devil" is based on? No, really?! That's quite a discovery, Glenn! Even Wintour came out and owned up to that several years ago.
But then Beck went on to make fun of her British accent, saying, "She's not from a foreign country."
Really, Glenn? She grew up in England, her father was a major British film producer, and she didn't arrive in the U.S. until she became an editor at New York Magazine in the late '80s.
Don't you love a guy with high ratings who never even bothers to check his facts? Somehow, we have a feeling a Beck Vogue spread is coming -- and it won't be pretty.
