Did Wintour Skip Dior Couture or Inauguration?

Say you drew a Venn diagram about people that cared about both Dior Couture spring/summer 2013, which showed this morning in Paris, and the ongoing inaugural festivities in Washington, D.C. We’d venture that Anna Wintour would be in the middle oblong portion, skewing slightly toward Barack Obama. But it turns out corporate interests won out and there she was, front row, next to Hamish and his shitty vintage point-and-shoot, as Raf Simons’s looks walked the runway in France.

Due to the time difference, she probably went to her hotel afterward and spent the evening smirking at the FLOTUS Thom Browne moment on television. Which, for one brief moment, makes her just like the rest of us.
