Anna Wintour has been confirmed by two unidentified people as a likely candidate to serve as a United States ambassador in England.

The British-born editor of US Vogue has been the subject of political rumours since supporting America's President Barack Obama in his electoral campaign earlier this year.

British newspaper The Daily Mail now reports two people have come forward to confirm Obama is considering appointing Wintour as the next ambassador to England.

The 63-year-old helped raise millions for Obama's re-election bid, and ambassadorships to friendly countries are often a thank-you gift to top fundraisers after a tough campaign.

Among Wintour's money-raising efforts were lavish star-studded dinners and designer goods featuring Obama's face, made by her many contacts in the fashion industry.

Wintour is known for her straight-talking attitude, which has seen her dubbed "nuclear Wintour".

So far Wintour's representatives have dismissed any ambassadorship claims as "rumours" and insisted she will maintain her position at Vogue.
