Anna Wintour is hopeful top fashion designer Phoebe Philo will make a comeback this year.

During an interview for her Go Ask Anna video series, the U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief was asked by a member of the public about which fashion stars she would like to see more of in 2020.

Accordingly, Wintour shared that she is excited to see what former Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz comes up with when he releases his new venture in collaboration with bosses at Richemont, and is keeping an eye on Philo too.

"I would also love, love to see the great Phoebe Philo back on the runway or back in our lives in some way," she said. "But I have absolutely no insider information if that is going to happen."

Philo, 47, previously garnered critical acclaim during her stints as creative director of Chloe from 2001 until 2006 and as the head designer of Celine from 2008 to 2018.

Elsewhere in the chat, Wintour insisted that she won't be getting her own Instagram account anytime soon, and divulged that she has been catching up on some very stylish TV shows recently.

"I love The Crown. It always looks magnificent, not only in terms of the wardrobe choices, but the entire production values are so amazing. I love the make-up in Euphoria," the 70-year-old stated. "I also heard a lot about a show called The Eddy which I believe is set in Paris and is meant to be an update on Sex and the City and I am therefore very, very hopeful that this might be a TV show that can get fashion right."

The Eddy, created by La La Land's Damien Chazelle, will consist of eight episodes and stream on Netflix. A release date hasn't been announced.
