Anna Wintour Reveals What You Should Wear to a Job Interview

First impressions are important, no matter what anyone says. When getting ready for a job interview, it can be extremely stressful to pick an outfit that will leave a good impression.

Fortunately, long-time editor of Vogue, Anna Wintour, recently revealed what to where to a job interview.

“It’s so interesting to me how people dress when they come in for interviews,” Wintour said her video series called, Go Ask Anna.

📣Speaking exclusively to CNN's Christiane Amanpour in New York, Wintour expressed optimism about the changing media landscape she now finds herself in. "I think we're so fortunate today to have so many different channels in which to speak to our audiences," she said. "If you go back to when I was a young girl growing up in Britain, and (when) I went for my first job, it was considered a great thing if we reached an audience of 90,000 people with a monthly magazine. Now we have, I believe, 22 million followers on Instagram alone at Vogue US. So we are talking to men and women all over the world … in so many different ways (and) in a way that we couldn't possibly have imagined even 10 years ago, 15 years ago." Wintour was speaking the day after Condé Nast appointed Roger Lynch, former CEO of the music streaming service Pandora, as its first global chief executive. The news came less than six months after the publisher announced that it would merge Condé Nast International (headquartered in London) with Condé Nast (the US arm), a restructuring that also saw the company's CEO, Bob Sauerberg, step down. Rumors around Wintour's potential exit predate the latest upheavals — and they swirled again last summer. Wagging tongues were once again silenced by Sauerberg's insistence that Vogue's editor-in-chief would stay on "indefinitely." "Anna Wintour is an incredibly talented and creative leader whose influence is beyond measure," Sauerberg's statement read. "She is integral to the future of our company's transformation and has agreed to work with me indefinitely in her role as editor-in-chief, Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast."

“Sometimes you feel they’re wearing clothes that they just bought that morning, or maybe the night before, and not something that in any way suits their personality and who they are. I think what everyone should remember, whether they’re interviewing at Vogueor indeed anywhere, that we’re not hiring your wardrobe. Your wardrobe is not going to be doing the job for you — it’s who you are.”

Wintour added that she once hired a guy who came to an interview wearing a dress and a handbag, just because he didn’t pretend to be someone he wasn’t.

Next time you go to an interview, wear something you love and feel comfortable in.
