Vogue Editor Doesn’t Rule Out Truss Feature

There’s a glimmer of hope yet that Liz Truss may fulfil her dream of being featured in Vogue, as the editor tells Krishnan Guru-Murthy his attitude is ‘wait and see’ rather than a straight no. During the leadership campaign Nicola Sturgeon told a fringe audience that her only real interaction with Liz Truss had been at the COP26 summit where the future PM only asked her how the First Minister had secured a big feature in the glamourous lifestyle magazine.

That was the main thing she wanted to talk to me about, she wanted to know how she could get into Vogue – and she calls me an attention-seeker…

I said to her they came and asked me. I didn’t really mean to do this, but I said to her it hadn’t actually been my first time in Vogue, it had been my second time.

It looked a little bit as if she’d swallowed a wasp. I’m sure she’ll be in Vogue before too long.”

While editor Edward Enninful didn’t rule out a big Truss interview and photoshoot, there do seem to be some ideological differences between the new PM and the magazine’s editorial line on progressive social attitudes.

KGM: Would you put Liz Truss in Vogue?

EE: Haha, someone asked me that question before. Let’s see how she pans out, how about that.

KGM: That doesn’t tell me much. What do you think of her? 

EE: I’d like to see what she does as a leader… and then we can have this conversation again in six months’ time.

The clock is ticking…

Hat-tip to The Sun for the splash mock-up…

Sturgeon: Truss Asked Me How to Get in Vogue

Nicola Sturgeon has accused Liz Truss of hypocrisy over her claim that the Scottish First Minister is an “attention seeker”. When asked about Liz’s attack during an appearance on Iain Dale’s Fringe show today, Sturgeon insisted she’s only met the Foreign Secretary once – and all Liz wanted was advice on being featured in Vogue. They’re all Pri-Madonnas really…

Sturgeon claimed when she first heard about the war of words she first thought they were a “spoof”. The two leading ladies of politics met just after Sturgeon appeared in the magazine:

“That was the main thing she wanted to talk to me about, she wanted to know how she could get into Vogue – and she calls me an attention-seeker…

I said to her they came and asked me. I didn’t really mean to do this, but I said to her it hadn’t actually been my first time in Vogue, it had been my second time.

It looked a little bit as if she’d swallowed a wasp. I’m sure she’ll be in Vogue before too long.”

Nicola’s one to point the finger of hypocrisy, given she herself called ex-Scottish LibDem leader Willie Rennie a “pathetic attention seeker” during a furious Holyrood rant:

Thay dinnae lik’ it up thaim…

Get the Look: Theresa May’s £225 LK Bennett Dress in Vogue

Theresa May has been photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue, wearing a navy L.K. Bennnet dress. Guido reckons it is the ‘Saskia Sloane’, which you can buy for £225:

“Saskia means business. This Sloane-blue dress is a timeless office-to-evening essential. Its curved seam detailing will flatter the figure, while the capped sleeves and mid-length finish provide the perfect amount of coverage.”

Theresa has an L.K. Bennett discount card which she uses so much she has to declare it in her Register of Interests…

Oh and the top lines from the interview: she says she rows with husband Philip when she wants to watch crime drama NCIS, and says Donald Trump was being a gentleman when he held her hand. Read it here
