Hello there 🙂
Anna Wintour's influence on the fashion industry is undeniable. As editor-in-chief of Fashion In the US, over the last 30 years, Wintour has decided which trends deserve to grace the pages of their famous magazine and which should fall by the wayside. In some circles, Anna's opinion means everything, and the receipt of the coveted "AWOK" seal of approval can make or break a career.
Given that Anna's word counts so much, it would be logical to assume that people would be reluctant to contradict their advice, especially when it comes to fashion. Whether it's a black head-to-toe or blending patterns with unbridled flair, we've found some examples of celebrities who have (possibly unintentionally) violated Wintour's fashion rules and managed to prove that Rules are really made to be broken.
Whether intended or not, this is an ode to the risk takers of Hollywood who have proven that it's okay to play according to your own style rules. Scroll down to see how four times celebrities have successfully violated Anna Wintour's rules of fashion.
One of Wintour's best-known fashion bids is to avoid wearing head to toe in black. In a recent section of the Go Ask Anna video series, Wintour was asked how she could spice up a completely black outfit, and she simply replied, "Do not wear everything black – it seems too dark and like going to a funeral. "
Despite the fact that Wintour often wears patterns himself, the Editrix warns that people should be very careful when it comes to it Mix Prints or patterns, in particular those of us that may be of lesser stature. "When mixing patterns, you should be very careful," said Wintour in a Go Ask Anna video. "You have to be very confident and usually pretty tall, otherwise you can look a little busy."
Even though she has not said it in so many words, Anna Wintour does not seem to be a fan of neon colors or fluorescent tones. In a Snapchat video to celebrate the US Open, Wintour warned the participants of the tennis event, "Do not forget to wear your sunglasses.especially if the male players insist on wearing those ugly fluorescent colors. "
In a separate video, Wintour also told Taylor Swift that neon-leopard leggings are the trend she never wanted.
Like Neon, Wintour did not exactly denounce sequins, even though she does not have very positive feelings about them. When asked what to wear for a Black Tie event, Wintour said, "Do not wear a boring sequin dress or a debutante dress just because you feel like you should."
In another video, she described the mainstay of fish-tailed sequin dresses as something we've seen "5000 times."
