6 Possible Replacements For Anna Wintour If She Leaves Vogue

Though it hasn’t been confirmed, the rumors that President Obama is considering making Anna Wintour an ambassador are getting stronger by the week. If this happens she will have to leave her post at Vogue as Editor in Chief which would be a huge loss for the magazine as well as the fashion industry as a whole. So to help Vogue out (because they would come to us first of course) we came up with a list of great potential new Editors for the legendary publication. Take a look!
The Chief Creative Director for
Vogue would be a natural choice and she is about to have her moment in the sun with her new memoir so it would be good timing. Grace and Anna often butt heads so we would definitely see some changes at Vogue. Basically Grace likes to do really long editorial photo spreads with no celebrities. So the Vogue September issue would literally be 1,000,000 pages featuring that model whose name you don't know.
2.Andre Leon Talley
Oh this would be so fun. I just think he would make the
Vogue work environment a cheerier place. Plus, if he can convince us those hats are in style, that would be awesome. The world needs more hats and more Andre. It astounds me he doesn't have a show on Bravo yet. It just makes no sense.
The former editor of
Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and Talk Magazine should come in, fire a bunch of people who have worked there forever, change everything, put a creepy photo of a person thats been for dead for 10 years on the cover and piss people off and then leave and launch a magazine about rich socialites but insist it speaks to a general audience.
Yes, she is 16 but she has an extremely sophisticated fashion sense and
Vogue is obsessed with youth so it's perfect. For her first issue, she should have all the models do her famous "bitch face." Though I am not sure how that is different from what models usually do in magazines....
Joanna is perhaps the most like Anna (and not just because of her English accent and savvy fashion sense) but because she has improved every magazine she has run for the better. She transformed
Marie Claire into a digital masterpiece and she is now taking on Cosmopolitan.
She has a reputation for being tough, but like Anna she gets results. One of her first editorial meetings at Cosmo sounds a lot like a scene in The Devil Wears Prada. From The Cut:
“Oh, you’re Jessica Knoll,” she says to a young woman in a lace top who writes a great deal for the magazine. “Kate told me you’re a rock star,” she says of her predecessor, Kate White. “But Kate’s gone, so it doesn’t matter now.”
You're probably thinking this is out of left field except Jessica is actual a fashion mastermind with her Jessica Simpson fashion collection.
According to WWD, The Jessica Simpson Collection, has become one of the most successful celebrity fashion lines of all time. It will most likely become the first ever to earn more than a billion dollars in retail sales considering her line brought in a whopping $750,000,000 in retail sales last year alone. Yes, the magazine would have a lot more platform heels, jean shorts and cowboy boots in it but maybe that's okay.
