Anna Wintour publicly announced her support for Hillary Clinton's campaign bid for the 2016 presidential election at an exhibit called "Oscar de la Renta: American Icon" in Little Rock, Arkansas. There, ODLR's now iconic Hillary pantsuit was on display, naturally. According to the AP, Wintour said, "She always looked entirely appropriate wherever she was and nearly always in Oscar [...] It's anyone's guess what the next chapter will be for this extraordinary woman. I can only hope that all of you here in Little Rock will be celebrating her come November 2016."

The endorsement follows Hillary's pantsuit hit at the CFDA Awards (as well as on Twitter) and Wintour's long-standing support of the politician via the pages of Vogue, whether Hillary likes it or not.
