Anna Wintour reveals Meghan Markle is making her consider changing her signature look

She’s famously hard to impress, especially when it comes to her sartorial choices.

But Anna Wintour, 69, has been particularly taken by the Duchess of Sussex, calling her ‘an inspiration’.

Speaking to former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown, 65,  at the 2019 Women in the World summit in New York the editor-in-chief of Vogue said: ‘She’s really bringing modernity to the royal family in a way that is inspiring’.

‘I think the image that I have in my mind… the Duchess of Sussex walking down the aisle by herself, that to me was representative of a modern woman.’

Continuing to praise the former actress, 37, Anna, who was wearing a leopard print maxi dress continued and shielded her face in sunglasses said:  ‘When she went on that trip to Australia and New Zealand, she was very respectful in choosing a lot of unknown Australian designers to wear, which was great,’ 

‘But I think, more importantly, she’s really bringing modernity to the royal family in a way that is inspiring’ she continued. 

Anna, who is famous for her signature style of black sunglasses, a tea-length dress and statement necklace added that she’s considering changing up her ‘uniform’ thanks to the royal’s bold style choices.

When Tina asked her how she ‘arrived’ at her look, and whether or not a uniform is the best solution for a working woman, Anna said it was ‘an entirely personal decision’.

‘It’s probably an easier decision to wear the same thing every day and not have to be concerned’ she continued.

‘I’ve been thinking a lot about suits recently so… thank you to the Duchess of Sussex!’

But Meghan wasn’t the only royal the journalist praised.

She also recalled her lunch with Harry’s late mother Princess Diana, just six weeks before her death in August 1997. 

With Tina, Anna met at the Princess of Wales at the Four Seasons in New York, where she donned a mint green Chanel suit.

‘She looked incredible first of all. That was the most important thing and she looked fantastic’ the Vogue editor said. ‘I heard that she spent a lot of time deciding what to wear to that particular lunch.    

‘I think that the part of her popularity was that Princess Diana really was so good with the media and was so in tune with them and welcomed them rather than standing back.

‘In a way, she was certainly the first person in the royal family to understand the benefits of that.’
