("Well why yes, Mr. President, I will take that job. Tell Michelle I said, 'Hello.'" Yes, that is how Iimagined the conversation was between Barack and Anna.)Washington, D.C. - As if the White House isn't already chic enough (thanks to the First Lady and you too Mr. President), President Barack Obama appointed Anna Wintour to be part of the Committee on the Arts and Humanities. The Vogue editor in chief joins 24 other members on board, including actors Sarah Jessica Parker, Forest Whitaker, Edward Norton, musician Yo-Yo Ma, and Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Senator John Kerry. The committee was organized to "advise President Obama on how to expand the role of the arts in society." Adding Anna to the list, of course, comes to no surprise since she has shown her support for the Obama family during the 2008 presidential campaign. She cohosted a fund-raiser to honor Michelle Obama and featured Michelle on the cover of Vogue. [Story: WWD]Kristina Bustos
