Since I am a lazy, bad blogger, I neglected to mention I was lucky enough to join K as her date for a screening of The September Issue as part of Discovery Channel’s Silver Docs Documentary Film Festival about a week ago. Though it’s gotten mixed reviews, I quite enjoyed it. I thought it portrayed the fashion business for what it is: competitive, beautiful, elitist, expensive, artistic, and frustrating at times. I thought R.J. Cutler did a fabulous job of pulling the real stories out of the people that dominate the fashion universe that is Vogue – Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour’s love/hate relationship, insight into the origins of Anna’s icy exterior, Grace’s fierce creative vision, the almost frightening extent to which Anna’s influence extends over the fashion industry, and various sartorial celebs’ downright comical eccentricities (Andre Leon Talley and Mario Testino do not disappoint). I encourage you all to see it as soon as it comes out August 28!
