The September Issue

So I just got back from seeing the September Issue, the new documentary about Anna Wintour, and the process of putting out Vogue's September issue. It was amazing, being able to see multiple sides of Anna Wintour's personality. She is a stern byotch when she meets with her staff and designers, and then there is a more maternal side as she interacts with her daughter, who is completely against working at Vogue. This movie reminded me of why I moved to New York to work in the fashion industry. It was amazing to see all the beautiful clothes and photoshoots from a different perspective. You also get to know Grace Coddington, the Creative Director, who keeps battling throughout the movie to keep the different shots from her multiple photo shoots in the issue that Anna keeps taking out. It was comical to see these two in a quiet battle, pushing each other's buttons. And at last Andre Leon Talley, makes an appearance playing tennis in his designer outfit and Louis Vuitton case that carries his fiji water...such a riot...Luvs him! But...It wasn't all that for everyone, since my work bffl fell asleep within the first 30mins of the movie starting...but I blame that on his allergy medicine! lol Go see it, you will be fully entertained if you are even somewhat into fashion. Two thumbs up...B

I was such a cheeseball and took a picture of the's totally heinous, but it's the thought that counts!
