Anna Wintour's Wig?






















Photo by S.O. Fasrus: London Fashion Week, after party, 19/02/2019

please do not stare or glare at Anna's hair
which doesn't change a bit from day to day
her big dark glasses such an assuring sight

high priestesses of fashion, know what's right
and Vogue's not Vogue without her, so they say
so do not stare or glare at Anna's hair

like Andy Warhol, wigs have served her right
though classic brunette, never bleached or grey
her big dark glasses such an assuring sight

our fashion leaders dare not look a fright
the head of Vogue, her image must not stray
so do not stare or glare at Anna's hair

stern-faced, there's Anna, Dame and leading light
at London Fashion Week, two seats away
her big dark glasses such an assuring sight

the Editor of Vogue just knows what's right
so turn a blind eye, seem to look away -
her big dark glasses such an assuring sight -
and please don't glare or stare at Anna's hair
