Wintour Out

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

That ambassadorial appointment that Anna Wintour definitely, definitely didn't want isn't going to her anyway: The Times reports that the ambassador to Britain job, which she was gunning for depending on who you ask, will most likely fall to Matthew Barzun, a tech exec who headed the president's national fund-raising operation. France is still up for grabs but the editrix "is no longer seeking the appointment." [NYTimes]
