The September Issue
I FINALLY saw The September Issue last weekend, when it was featured on A&E. I meant to see this movie when it first came out, but I never got around to it. For fashion lovers, this movie is a must!
I thought it would focus heavily on Anna Wintour, which it did. But the star of this film was the amazing and talented Grace Coddington, Vogue's Creative Queen. (that should be her title). Amazing woman and stunning to boot. She was a former model in her youth and retired from modeling after surviving a car accident. She styles the models for the breathtaking pictorials and her vision and creativity are second to none.
Of course, Anna Wintour was very intense, but also fascinating to watch. She is villanized in the media, but all I saw was a no nonsense, hard-working woman. (Still I don't know if I could work for her).
If you're like me and didn't catch this movie when it first came out, check when they're replaying it on A&E. The best scene was Andre Leon Talley's tennis session and his Louis Vuitton "tennis" accessories because you really can't place tennis without an LV towel around your neck.
