The beauty of what Apple does at Apple is that they're not on trend; they are classic.
I am very lucky in my team. They sit opposite me, and I get to see them every day sitting there staring at the seating chart, not doing much. It is almost like a chess game.
I look for strong people. I don't like people who'll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue and disagree and have a point of view that's reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to 'The Standard.'
We all have a role to play in creating safe environments where everyone can be free to work without fear.
It would be ridiculous to ignore the speed and possibilities of the digital landscape.
Previous first ladies seemed to feel the need to wear a sort of uniform, whereas Michelle Obama likes fashion and is very comfortable in fashion. She's happy to mix high and low, and she loves emerging designers. That will do nothing but good for our industry.
It's important for young women and men coming out of the fashion schools to think seriously before starting their own collections.
The Fashion Fund celebrates the real passion that underlies the fashion business, not the frothy world of glamour and celebrity that so often surrounds it.
Fashion's not about looking back. It's always about looking forward.
Certainly we have made mistakes, but you try and learn from your mistakes. And the most important thing is always to move forward and, I think, empower people to do their best, and to lead. I think people respect that and work better under those circumstances.
Finding your way doesn't mean surviving, just as pleasing an audience doesn't mean twisting your editorial around search engine optimization and Facebook algorithms.
It is important always to have really original talent. There are lots of good designers that make attractive clothes and make women look beautiful. But at the same time, one doesn't want to lose the idea that there is someone out there who can change the way you look at fashion.
I'm always looking for a cover subject that reflects the magazine, an interest in fashion, in culture, in society. We're trying to bring the world into the pages of 'Vogue.' We do that by tapping into the zeitgeists with our cover subjects.
Mental health is an area where people are embarrassed. They don't want to talk about it because somehow they feel they're a failure as a parent or, you know, they're embarrassed for their child or they want to protect their child, lots of very good reasons, but mental health, I feel, is something that you have to talk about.
By the time I came to the States, I really understood how a magazine works. I came to 'Vogue' as creative director, and three years later I went back to London to be editor in chief of British 'Vogue.'
Even if you aren't sure of yourself, pretend that you are... most people prevaricate.
I think of young Chinese women today as being incredibly modern and are taking a lot from Western style and tailoring.
Of course there were times, particularly when you travel, when it's very tough to leave the kids, particularly when they were very young. I would try to take them with me when I could just so they could experience and see a little bit of what a work day involved.
I don't think in today's world you can go too far. However you may feel about social media or the Internet or selfies, it's part of how we all live today. 'Vogue' needs to understand and reflect that.
I think we're living, in terms of media, in a very democratic age, but I think that we still look at everything through the lens of 'Vogue' and through our own point of view.
I'm horribly hands-on, I'm afraid. I like to read every caption.
I don't feel that Chinese designers have reached the level of prominence that European or American designers have, but we've noticed in fashion schools in the U.S. and in England and we've seen how much the makeup of the students in the classes have changed there in the last five to 10 years.
Everyone should get sacked at least once. It forces you to look at yourself... It is important to have setbacks, because that is the reality of life. Perfection doesn't exist.
To me, fashion is ceaselessly fascinating because it is an expression of self.
I like having young assistants in my office; they have energy, and I spend time with them to make sure they understand what we're doing. By investing in them, I'm investing in the magazine. All over 'Vogue,' 'Teen Vogue,' and 'Men's Vogue,' there are people who have been through not only my office but also many other offices at 'Vogue.'
If one comes across sometimes as being cold or brusque, it's simply because I'm striving for the best.
Traditionally, those that work in fashion have always had the point of view that items made by hand have their own aura and are something special.
I went to Wimbledon before I could walk. It's just been a lifelong passion.
The notion that a contemporary woman must look mannish in order to be taken seriously as a seeker of power is frankly dismaying. This is America, not Saudi Arabia.
It would be ridiculous to ignore the speed and possibilities of the digital landscape - you absolutely need to have fast-moving news online, but if you want to build a large audience over time, you absolutely have to take a risk on the big challenging stuff.
Western design houses have been exploring China in terms of investment for well over a decade.
I'm very driven by what I do. I am certainly very competitive. I like people who represent the best at what they do, and if that turns you into a perfectionist, then maybe I am.
I surround myself with a talented group of people that are opinionated and interesting. I try to remain very open to what others have to say.
I think it's very important for children to understand that women work and that it's fulfilling, and it doesn't mean that they love you any less or care about you any less.
It is so important for designers not to run scared, and not to be too worried about what's safe and what's commercial.
I never pay any attention. I'm sure it's not such a good way to be, but I don't really follow market research.
Things change. You walk on the street and get a Starbucks, and things have changed by the time you come back to the office.
There's barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian-Wests haven't been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world's spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.
Of course it would be wonderful for Hillary Clinton to be the first female president, but I think she would be the first to say that she wouldn't want people to vote for her just because she's a woman.
I think it would be incredible for this country if we could have our first woman president.
I don't understand that if you look wonderful, does that make you less important, less powerful, less serious?
We're all used to hearing the word 'authentic' a little too often these days, but in Senator Gillibrand's case, it's entirely accurate.
In the fact that 'Vogue' is someone that can help guide enormous audiences through this fascinating world, I would like to think we are as influential and actually are now reaching so many more people than we ever dreamt of back in the Fifties or the Sixties.
After a series of jobs that I prefer not to recall, I was hired in the early eighties as fashion editor of 'New York' magazine.
Fashion, which often seems to be on a path to be bigger, more Instagram-ready, can also achieve its best through sincerity.
