It’s an impressive feat for anyone, let alone a woman balancing this with life as a new mom! Recently though, Marissa caused even more of a stir… posing for the September issue of Vogue magazine. Considered a somewhat controversial move for such a high profile CEO, everyone from Wall Street traders to High Street darlings have been weighing in.
Her recent Vogue interview is accompanied by a polished, high fashion photo (above) featuring Marissa reclining on a lounge bed, perfectly coiffed from head to toe and sporting a tablet picturing her own face. A debate ensued the world over, raising the question – is this inappropriate for one of the world’s most influential business identities?
I personally think it’s fantastic, delivering a message that you can be incredibly smart and impeccably stylish, you can embrace your femininity and still be a strong, powerful leader. However, it was also interesting to hear my boyfriend Chris’s thoughts – he believed that it isn’t an appropriate move for someone of her stature, “she should be focused on running a business and not modelling in a magazine”.
As you probably know, I do appreciate a good debate – a sharing of the minds if you will. So I’d love to know your thoughts… do you think Marissa’s Vogue feature is fabulous or a business faux pas?
