The allure of Christiane Amanpour has always been intertwined with no-frills attire in sync with the mostly dour and dangerous locales from which she reports. Now comes Amanpour, CNN doyenne of haute couture.
August Harper’s Bazaar includes “Christiane Amanpour’s Headline Style” by Rita Wilson (yes, the actress), a brief foray into high fashion by a reporter whose introduction to most viewers, during the first Gulf War, is probably associated with light trousers and simple shirts with upturned collars. When she later reported in the colder climes of Bosnia, she opted for a green parka with a hood and fake-fur trim. Safari jackets, not Karl Lagerfeld, have been the austere norm.
