Anna Wintour accused of pushing ‘American woke values’ on the French edition of the fashion magazine
The French edition of 流行 magazine will reportedly have its “パリ” title dropped from the cover for the first time in 70 年, prompting accusations that Anna Wintour is “crushing the elitist Parisian spirit”.
French newspaper Le Figaro said that Wintour, the global editorial director of the iconic fashion magazine, is pushing “American woke values” onto the publication to boost falling circulation numbers.

According to an editorial written in Le Figaro 今週, the next issue of Vogue Paris will be published on 4 November and will not feature the word “Paris” as part of a streamlining exercise by its parent company, Condé Nast.
