Anna Wintour thinks everyone should remember, whether they’re interviewing at Vogue or just anywhere, that we’re not hiring what you wear.
‘Your wardrobe is not going to be doing the job for you, it’s who you are.’
Wintour also says whether there had been a potential candidate to whom she gave a job to ‘on the spot’ for his sense of style.
‘I’ll always remember a young man who came in in a dress and a handbag, and I gave him the job on the spot,’ she says.
‘Dress for yourself!
Wintour says, “believe in a gender-fluid approach to clothing”.
‘I do not believe that men and women should have separate rules,’ she says.
‘I think that if a man chooses to wear a dress, that’s great, and women have certainly been wearing men’s suits for a very long time.’
‘If somebody wants to show men mixed with women or totally a gender-fluid collection and they want to show it in Tokyo in January or June, what difference does it make? Everybody has to follow the path that they feel is right for them.’
