Anna Wintour doesn’t have time for that archaic stereotype that women can’t both be smart and love fashion.
Speaking with Business of Fashion, the Vogue editor-in-chief touched on an interview in December where Fox News host Tucker Carlson told Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca she should stick with writing about “thigh-high boots” instead of wading into politics.
“There is unfortunately a world that still exists that dismisses fashion as being a little bit frivolous and [assumes that] the people who work in it are not so smart,” Wintour said. “There is still unfortunately a shrinking [group], and usually men, frankly, and old-fashioned men, that think that way and see us that way and you know, you can’t let it worry you. It’s annoying but it doesn’t stop any of us,” she added.
Wintour also discussed Edward Enninful’s appointment as British Vogue‘s editor-in-chief. Enninful is only the second man to helm a major international edition of the magazine. “We are in a gender-fluid generation,” Wintour said.
