Want to work at Vogue? These are the FOUR things Anna will look for

There has been an awful lot made of working with the fashion industry’s most influential woman. The Devil Wears Prada for one, and countless articles have been written which seek to outline exactly what it takes to land every fashion girl’s dream job at Vogue.

One writer even offered up her real-life interview with the legendary editor Anna Wintour as evidence that it can be done. Granted, it may be a little trickier than you might wish, but it can be done. Amy Odell noted that Anna is actually "shy" rather than frosty.

The walk from the door of the office to her desk though, can be just as cringe as you imagine: "Just long enough for her to stare you down, judge your outfit and make you feel embarrassed about being in her presence."

You just have to make sure you are wearing the right label and the right season firstly, because Anna knows these things, obviously.

There a few other things she has mentioned over the years regarding what she looks for in her favourite employees…

 

1) Have an opinion

"I look for strong people. I don't like people who will say yes to everything I bring up. I want people who can argue and disagree and have a point of view."

2) Ambition

"I'm very good at delegating – people work much better when they have a real sense of responsibility."

3) Enjoy a good show

"I really think you have to go out and see things – screenings, theatre, exhibitions."

4) Embrace colour

Also, unlike many others in the fashion industry Anna does not appreciate all-black everything. She has famously said in the past "[I'd never wear] head-to-toe-black."
