It might have had some interest if it wasn't years old. The fashions were yesterdays.
And LOUD Andre made it easy for us to turn it off halfway.
Unfortunately it skipped through Paris so any touring interest was lost.
Can there be a more joyless woman on this planet than Anna Wintour? It's only fashion, lady! You are neither splitting an atom or saving the third world from hunger and disease - still, in Anna's world, she behaves like she is. The September Issue is a (carefully orchestrated) revealing look inside the sometime vacuous, high stake industry that is fashion, darling. And it's engaging and fascinating and the characters are watchable. But my one great gripe about this doco is Frosty Wintour herself. She takes herself so seriously, she is completely incapable of feeling some JOY from a career that is clearly fruitful - a driver, endless designer wardrobe, VIP tickets to the hottest blah blah in town - in spite of all this charmed life stuff, she spends most of the film looking like she's working for a warlord in Nicaragua. Unsmiling and joyless. And she's definitely NOT the woman to watch in this doco. Wintour's long time friend and colleague (the chick with flaming red hair) is the one you'll be fascinated by... she gets enormous budgets for her photo shoots and then Wintour cuts them out of the magazine - without consulting her. Watch her stomp around the Vogue office indignant at Wintour's disrespect - but she stays on regardless. The weird and perhaps not so wonderful world of fashion.
This doco on the fashion industry, and more particularly, the icy editor of Vogue, Anna Wintour, is really well made. It kept us engaged and intrigued. We really liked the creative chief Grace. A well spent 90 minutes.
An easy way to kill some time by watching how money can be wasted in magazine production. For someone that is supposed to be so influencial in the fashion industry I noticed that she kept wearing the same necklace & thin brown belt.
loved this documentry, with it's honesty & bitter battle for fashion appreciation, great to see the softer side of anna, who is protrayed as the ice maidian , in her firm but fair directive ability to run the most famous fashion magazine ever published.
The epitome of luscious viewing - queue this film immediately.
Great movie, would hate to work at Vogue.. she seems like a bitch!!! good viewing..
I find it bizarre that Anna is considered to have so much influence. I found her rather boring and a bit "meh". If Meryl Streep's character in Devil Wears Prada is modelled on her, I prefer the fictional one thanks! I did however really like Grace and admired her passion. Only interesting if you really like fashion.
Only watched 1/3 of this movie, I thought it was interesting but basically it is a kind of superficial and banal world. Of course I love fashion, looking at it and buying it - but the goings on for these magazines is just nonsense and over the top. Didn't enjoy it - and makes her look like a controlfreak. Thought her daughters remarks were very telling of her take on the whole world. wouldn't recommend it, unless you want to cringe in your seat.
Great documentary into the life of Anna Winter, Editor In Chief of Vogue magazine. Many women envy her, many despise her. She's classy and has so much control over what goes in the fashion world. Interesting that Meryl Streep got her character so right in the Devil Wears Prada
Didn't enjoy this one bit, only watched a quarter of it, if you are not into the fashion world or vogue magazine you won't like it.
Pretty good film - you don't get a massive insight into Anna Wintour though - more about the process of putting together a big issue of Vogue. Lots of cool people wearing glasses indoors etc etc...
well for any one who likes to think of themself as a bit of a fashion guru, it would be an absolute crime to miss such a fantastic documentary about one of the most influential fashion editors in the world.
loved it!!! Found it very interesting to learn about the process involved in getting an issue of vouge on the stand
It would seem 'The Devil Wears Prada' was on the money in it's portrayal of Anna Wintour - she comes off the same in this doco - even down to the office decor!! Watch everyone quake with fear and bow and scrape when she is around. Really fascinating look into the cut throat world of magazine publishing. Anna runs a tight ship as the harried looks of her staff attend. It is truely ironic that in a world obsessed with beauty, the people working on the magazine look worn out and unkempt - except for Anna of course - she keeps her cool in everything she does - she's so in control! Watch her exchange with Valentino as they discuss tennis elbow - it is one of the few times Anna lets her vunerabilities show! Graet stuff!
Not as insightful as I first thought it was going to be. Still quite interesting to see the workings of the magazine.
Bored to tears! Did not make it even half way through.
Interesting , but it certainly doesn't inspire me to buy it.
Now I understand why I am not remotely interested in the fashion industry.
Not as good as I'd hoped. Slow moving but some highlights include interviews with models and celbs for vogue and behind the scenes with Sienna Miller. I'd only recommend to total fashion lovers/vogue obsessed.
