Anna Wintour was awarded this year’s Brand Visionary award at Adweek’s Brand Genius gala.

Her speech, which followed an introduction from PepsiCo’s CEO and chairman Indra Nooyi, praised the work of all of Condé Nast’s titles, including the “explosion of interest around Teen Vogue with its bold, brave, activist voice.” She also took time to honor her mentor, S.I. Newhouse, who helped make the Condé brand into what it is today.

The gala was held at Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York and also honored other brand builders from Instagram, GE, Casper, Adidas and many other companies.
