How to Respond to Interview questions, Deliver a Slight, and Still Come Off Graceful

Case Study 1: Simply ignore it

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour appeared to throw subtle shade at Melania Trump when she was asked about the first lady’s style, but turned the conversation to former FLOTUS Michelle Obama instead.

In a new episode of “The Economist asks” podcast released on Friday, host Anne McElvoy asked Wintour if she “valued” the fact that Trump wore several British-inspired outfits during her husband President Donald Trump’s state visit to the United Kingdom in June.

Wintour sidestepped the question and made it all about Obama:

I think first lady Michelle Obama really was so incredible in every decision she made about fashion. She supported young American designers. She supported designers, indeed, from all over the world. She was the best ambassador that this country could possibly have in many ways, obviously, way beyond fashion.

“But she’s not the first lady now,” McElvoy responded. “So what about the one that you’ve got now?”

“To me, she (Obama) is the example that I admire,” Wintour replied.

1. Prof. Morrison wasn't having it, "You can't understand how powerfully racist that question is."
