Anna Wintour: 'Sometimes, Geek Can Be Chic' picked up the People's Voice award for fashion at the 15th Annual Webby Awards, held Monday in New York. Rather than sending a representative from the magazine's online division, the award had an unlikely recipient, Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour herself.

Sometimes, geek can be chic.
By attending, Anna was certainly showing her support for the digital world. Perhaps this is a sign to look out for more digital offerings from the fashion mag in the future?
