Last month we presented the trailer for The September Issue, the much anticipated documentary by R.J. Cutler that takes a behind the scenes look at the inner-workings of Vogue magazine and its famed Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.
The film documents the lead-up to the September 2007 issue – weighing in at nearly five pounds (2.25kg), the finished magazine was 840 pages, contained 727 advertisements, and was the largest issue of Vogue to date – kind of a testament to what life was like prior to the recession (ah, memories).
So since the movie is all about Anna and her team it’s only fair she gets to host the opening party right? August 19 will see what is sure to be an extravagant affair – a who’s who of the fashion industry – and will be followed by a private dinner.
Everyone’s speculating on whether Karl Lagerfeld will make the trip over, but word on the street is that Oscar de la Renta will be attending, and you can expect to see appearances by some of Anna’s larger than life co-workers and designer BFFs.
Looking forward to the red carpet pics!
