The fabulous editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, was recently named the 69th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.
But with power and its reputation comes some not so flattering descriptions — especially for women.
So Forbes sat down with the HBIC of Vogue to hear her current thoughts on power, women, and fashion.
On what power means to her:
I don’t think of myself as a powerful person. You know, what does it mean? It means you get a better seat in a restaurant or tickets to a screening or whatever it may be. But it is a wonderful opportunity to be able to help others, and for that I’m extremely grateful.
On her least favorite stereotypes of powerful women:
It’s not so much about powerful women. In some cases, there are stereotypes about women. I often don’t hear men talked about in the same way. It’s more a sexist stereotype than a powerful stereotype.
On Fashion's Night Out:
The stores were thrilled [with the first FNO]. To be honest, we started off thinking it would be just one night, but immediately we were asked to do it again. Some people even wanted us to do it twice a year, and we put our foot down on that. But we decided to anniversary it.
Anna's interview also unveils how she chooses the cover women to represent her magazine every month, what it's been like to have been with Vogue for so long, etc..
Go ahead and watch the interview (above). Like Anna, it's really quite lovely!
