Doesn't Glamour do this roughly every year? They always throw in a service member, and they always give the age like that means anything, rather than pay grade or time in service. "Public Affairs Specialist" tells you nothing. At 39, she could be anything from a private to a field-grade officer. (I guess it's possible to be a general at that age, but you'd probably have to be both super high speed and combat arms.) Sorry, not y'all's fault. I'm just kvetching.

That's not really fair... it depends very much on who the designer is.

Wow, I'm (cough cough) over 25 and wish I made 90K annually at something I love. I like knowing that they're compensated fairly well, esp. the handbag designer.

I agree. Design doesn't always make that much. That being said, Kara Whitten is a fabulous designer. I own 2 clutches and a wallet that I adore. Very cool.
