Anna Wintour does not approve of matching couple outfits

Anna Wintour does not approve of couples wearing matching outfits in public.

The fashion journalist, who has served as editor-in-chief of U.S. Vogue since 1988, is one of the most important figures in the industry.

But while Wintour has seen many trends come and go, in a video interview for her Go Ask Anna series, she noted that she can't stand it when people make a point of wearing the same clothes.

"Absolutely not," she sighed. "I am not a fan of partner dressing. I think everybody should be completely independent."

Wintour was then asked by another member of the public for her take on sustainable fashion and whether she believed a day will come where we will "shop from our own closets".

Accordingly, she insisted that everyone should carefully consider what they buy - within reason.

"I did hear recently that the great Jane Fonda has given up shopping. But I imagine that she has a very, very large closet to shop from while she remains in Washington (D.C.) demonstrating for climate change. And good for her, what a fantastic thing to be doing with your Fridays," the 70-year-old commented. "But I also think it's important to remember that fashion gives one so much joy and so much sense of optimism. Yes, we should all shop more responsibly, more carefully, thinking about things that really are going to last. But fashion is also about individuality, self-expression and reflecting a moment. I think it's very, very important to remember that."

And as for her New Year's resolution for 2020, Wintour has one main goal.

"I only have one New Year's resolution and that is to do absolutely everything I can to help elect a Democratic candidate for (U.S.) President," she added.
