If anyone knows, it is them: Vogue editor-in-chief reveals the dos and don'ts for the perfect job interview outfit in an interview.
Do you prefer the classic and formal? Or should you jump into a more daring outfit during the job interview and show courage? If anyone has the answer to that question, it's Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. After all, the outfit should be well chosen. And of course there are also a few no-gos that could spoil an actually positive impression. Of course, completely different criteria are important for the dream job. Anna Wintour sees it that way too.
A cloakroom is who you are
"What people should remember when they go to a job interview at Vogue or any other company is that we don't shut down their wardrobe. Your wardrobe isn't going to do the job for you - it is who you are," explains the Vogue boss in the YouTube video series "Go Ask Anna".
"You're not doing anyone a favor by pretending"
"Sometimes you feel like they're wearing clothes that they bought early in the morning or maybe the night before. But not something that in any way fits their personality or who they are." Of course, the editor-in-chief of the most renowned fashion magazine pays special attention to the choice of outfit. For example, the 69-year-old remembers a young man who came to the interview in a dress with a handbag: "I gave him the job straight away. You have to dress for yourself. That goes for any job you might aspire to. I don't think you're doing yourself a favor by faking something."
