The September Issue
Documentary / English
A dazzling behind-the-scenes study reveals the personalities behind the world's glossiest magazine.
Anna Wintour is high fashion's coolest and perhaps most powerful player. Her dynamic editorship of American Vogue has seen her mythologised for both her commercial vision and her chilly, inscrutable demeanour. RJ Cutler's irreverent and beautifully observed doc catches all of Wintour's buttoned-up mystique, and gets to the heart of what ruffles it – chiefly Vogue creative director Grace Coddington, a flamboyant foil to the boss' froideur.
#1 / Sunday 28 June, 2009 / 21:41 GMTI loved this documentary - it is fantastic. I am not into fashion at all and found this extremely interesting. Seeing what goes on behind the scenes and seeing how powerful Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington are. It actually made me appreciate the work and beauty that goes into these magazine pictures more than I would have through possible. It's a brilliant documentary and well worth a watch.
