Anna Wintour and Michelle Obama Hug Before Met Gala

Fashion and politics have finally met! Michelle Obama and Anna Wintour gave each other an affectionate hug at a ribbon cutting ceremony that occurred recently. 

The ice queen Wintour displayed a rare capacity for deep feeling and smiled as she embraced the president’s wife. Michelle, who is well past her middle age, made a trip to NYC to honor the grand dame of fashion and all things stylish. 

In the capacity of the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour has a certain responsibility as the upholder of the younger generation’s ideals with reference to clothes and beautiful trends. 

And of course Michelle Obama is a beacon of hope for the youth, minorities and females of America. Her campaign to end obesity is a very brave and bold step in the fight against the epidemic. 

The occasion was the ribbon cutting ceremony of Wintour’s Costume Center. This ceremony was held in morning at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute where 2014 Met Gala was held in evening. Michelle is a fashionable female who has been on the cover of Vogue twice thanks to Anna’s admiration of her. 

Watch the Photo Gallery of the event below.

She acknowledged that she was there that day due to Anna. "I'm so impressed by Anna's contributions, not just to fashion but to this great museum," Mrs. Obama said, referencing Wintour's work with the Met Gala. "This center is for anyone who cares about fashion and how it impacts our culture and our history."

Michelle wore a green ensemble that lent grace and poise to her demeanor. She spoke of how Wintour’s passion for fashion had led to the formation of this museum for cultural greatness in the form of beautiful clothes and stylish trends. 

Michelle Obama also said that Wintour will always remain a part of America’s heritage. Wintour meanwhile wore a Chanel dress and said in an outspoken manner that Mrs. Obama absolutely loved all things fashion-worthy and was not afraid of new stuff like some people in Washington. 

Anna Wintour said, "Mrs. Obama loves fashion. She isn't, like some people in Washington, frightened of it. She believes, as we do at Vogue, that to be an independent, working woman doesn't mean that you have to walk around with a brown paper bag on."

She also said that to be a free working woman didn’t necessarily mean that you had to be dull in matters of clothing. The event created a dent in the day-to-day affairs and showed that the government is not always up to its repressive ways.
