What are we thankful for today? The Telegraph's interview "Beneath the Bob" with Anna Wintour (we're not making that title up)! A few highlights from the glowing profile include...

"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." -on her Vogue team.

"I'm just there to do my job, and the celebrity factor is not something I think about." -on fame.

"Fashion today is available to everybody in a way that it's never been before: you've got every designer you've ever heard of working for H&M or Target. That's fantastic." 

"One doesn't want fashion to look ridiculous, silly, or out of step with the times - but you do want designers that make you think, that make you look at fashion differently. That's how fashion changes. If it doesn't change, it's not looking forward. And that's important to me."

"New York is a city for people who want to work. And I love that it is a city where everyone is from somewhere else - so you are not judged by your accent, who your dad was, or any of that Englishness." - on living in New York.

"Nor," she adds: "will I ever write a book." - on the chances that she'll be writing an autobiography someday.
