Trailer of the Moment: The September Issue


The impenetrable fortress of fashion has finally been breached! Of course, I am talking about the fashionista's bible: Vogue, and the infamous editrix-in-chief at helm, Anna Wintour.

"The September Issue" is a definite filmography breakthrough since Vogue is reputed to be highly secretive and enigmatic, akin to occults and deviant sects. Could this be the very reason the tagline reads: "Fashion is a religion"? Who knows.

Anyway, this new documentary by R.J. Cutler sheds light on the inner machinations of how Vogue--and in particular, Anna Wintour--influences the fashion industry.

From presiding over upcoming trends; designers; models; latest ins and outs; to her co-workers' outfits, Wintour is portrayed as a dictator who has definite grip on the whole fashion business.

It also shows how demanding the fashion world can be as shown by one psychologically broken assistant, and a frustrated creative director (Grace Coddington!).

But the essence of the film is how creative friction between Wintour and Coddington can create something beautiful and inspiring, namely the September 2007 issue (it's one of my favorite issues).
