We don't know whether Anna Wintour's appearance at the third season premiere of Girls has anything to do with Lena Dunham's rumored Vogue cover, but we do know this: Wintour attended the event wearing one of the distinctive multicolored fur coats seen on the runway at Prada's Spring 2014 show.
Since the collection took its conceptual cues from feminism (designer Miuccia Prada explained the show as her attempt to translate today's "debate about women") and the occasion was about fêteing a show that's preoccupied with women's rights, Wintour's sartorial choice seems like a resonant and thoughtful one.
Wintour isn't the first big fashion influencer to try on one of Prada's latest statement pieces. A week ago, designer Marc Jacobs was spotted wearing a similar fur coat while on vacation in St. Barths, where the temperature hovered near 75℉. Here in New York City the weather is, as The New York Times put it this morning in a front-page headline (on the iPad version), "life-threatening."

As The Telegraph points out, this duplicated coat situation is hardly unprecedented: At a screening of The Great Gatsby last year, Jacobs and Wintour were spotted wearing identical Prada fur jackets.
