‘The September Issue’ is the highly anticipated documentary movie that takes a look behind the scene of Vogue magazine and its infamous Editor in Chief Anna Wintour. The documentary chronicles the events leading up to the September 2007 issue of Vogue, September being the beginning of the fashion year. Accurately and interestingly depicted in the trailer below, not only does The September Issue gives Vogue readers and fashionistas alike the unique opportunity to see the inner workings of the popular publication, but more importantly it gives them the chance to watch the magnificence that is Anna Wintour beyond perceptions of her behavior depicted in movies such as The Devil Wears Prada.
Directed by R.J. Cutler and recipient of the Excellence in Cinematography Award for a US Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2008, the film takes us behind the scene of fashion weeks, on photo shoots, and in the most sacred of closed door meetings at Vogue. Being slated as the real The Devil Wears Prada, the movie shows us exactly why Anna Wintour is “like Madonna” as designer Thakoon Panichgul says in the trailer with obvious reverence.
With appearances by Anna’s colleagues Andre Leon Talley, and super stylist Grace Coddington The September Issue is loaded with designers, models, and clothes that would put a tear in any fashionistas eyes. R.J. Cutler hit the nail on the head with this one ladies, he offers us a privileged peek into a world many dream of but rarely ever see. I for one, can’t wait!
