Anna Wintour Just Broke Her Own Fashion Rule at the White House State Dinner

Political events in D.C. don’t usually draw a crowd of well-dressed celebrities, but tonight certainly seemed to be the exception. The White House hosted a state dinner in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron’s official visit and it proved to be the ultimate convergence of Hollywood and the Hill. Anna Wintour wore a vintage Chanel look from 1983, which came complete with built-in necklaces, belts, and bracelets. Interestingly, Wintour seems to have broken her own fashion rule. Amy Odell was quick to reference Wintour’s interview from 2019 in which she had some choice words about everyone’s favorite color: “Don’t wear all black,” Wintour had said. “It seems too gloomy as if one’s going to a funeral.” While the embellishments on the black gown certainly livened things up, it’s highly unusual to see Wintour in anything but colorful prints, so this was a rare sighting indeed. Scroll down to see her outfit and what other celebrities wore to the event. On Anna Wintour: Vintage Chanel S/S 83 dressOn First Lady Dr. Jill Biden: Oscar de la Renta custom dress; On First Lady Brigitte Macron: Louis Vuitton dressOn Violet Affleck: Carolina Herrera dress; On Jennifer Garner: Ralph Lauren dressOn Chrissy Teigen: On Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Monique Lhuillier dress; Tyler Ellis clutchOn Ariana DeBose: Tony Ward dressOn Gabriela Hearst: Gabriela Hearst S/S 23 dressNext, Margot Robbie wore a hair bow on the red carpet so I found an $8 Amazon dupe.
