But US Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour, 70, caused a frenzy in the comments section when she posed for an Instagram snap wearing jogging bottoms.
Anna had worn them in a chic fashion for Vogue’s Instagram account, teaming the red bottoms with a striped jumper as she sat at her chic desk to work from home.

Vogue was actually making a very important point with the post which hinted at a need to embrace sustainable fashion going forward in a bid to take better care of the environment.
It read: ‘We need to talk frankly and openly about what fashion is going through, but just as importantly, we need to start imagining what comes next.
‘Please join us. Anna Wintour shares how #VogueGlobalConversations, a four-day event on Zoom that starts tomorrow, came to be, as well as what she’s most looking forward to about it.’
In November, Anna urged consumers to be more mindful of their shopping habits in order to promote sustainability in fashion and not fast fashion.
While speaking to Reuters, she said that in her view, it is more advantageous for shoppers to take better care of their garments and pass them onto others, rather than to get rid of them after a few wears.
She said: ‘I think for all of us it means an attention more on craft, on creativity, and less on the idea of clothes that are instantly disposable, things that you will throw away just after one reading.’
