Anna Wintour Speaks On The Powerful Women of Vogue

Filed under: Fashion SmashionAnna WintourVogue

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!

Forbes Names 100 Most Powerful Women In The World

forbes 100 most powerful women

Forbes has compiled a list of the 100 most powerful women in the world, and the results are pretty inneresting.

Michelle Obama is at #1, which should come as no surprise, but GaGa ranks in at a healthy #7! That's right world, Lady GaGa is more important than Sarah Palin (#16) and Elena Kagan (#25).

Towards the middle of the list, there are some more familiar faces, including Sex and The City's Sarah Jessica Parker (#45), Twilight author Stephanie Meyer (#49), and backtracking a bit, we also have Queen Elizabeth II (#41).

It's definitely not REALLY upsetting to us that a legitimate Queen and the star of Sex and The City 2 are both in the forties.

At the end of the list, we've got some ladies of fashion, including Vera Wang (#91) and Donna Karan (#96).

At the VERY end of the list, there's lifestyle guru Martha Stewart at #99, and Dominique Senequier, the Chief Executive at AXA Private Yawn Equity at #100.

What do U think of this list? Anybody who doesn't belong? Anybody who should be there?
