Is Anna Wintour really the “dragon lady”, the “devil”, or the cold-hearted woman as portrayed in The Devil Wears Prada? I liked her as I watched tonight’s 60 Minutes feature on CBS. (I also liked the character played by stylemom Meryl Streep). She too is a mother, who I’m sure has had to make an unfathomable amount of personal sacrifices to be the leading figure in the fashion world for 20 years.
But the real question is this: Why is it that when a man is driven, powerful, tough, and successful at business he is called a mogul, and when a woman displays the same attributes, such as Anna Wintour, she is called “dragon lady” or the “devil”? hmmmmm….watch the 60 minutes interview and you decide – is she a devil?
Watch more video clips and outtakes from the interview, including: Ralph Lauren and Dolce & Gabbana on how the queen of fashion has helped their careers, Anna Wintour’s take on obesity in America, the holy grail of shoes and handbags – Vogue’s accessory closet, and how Anna told Oprah Winfrey to lose weight in 1998, for her Vogue cover shoot as the first African-American celebrity to appear on the cover.
