The September Issue


Last night I watched "The September Issue". I only knew it was about Vogue and Anna Wintour, but I didn't know what to expect. I thought it was a history of Vogue with actors, but it's actually a behind the scenes documentary about the magazine. The only knowledge of the fashion magazine world I had before this film was "Ugly Betty".

I learned so much about the fashion industry, magazine publishing, Anna Wintour and Vogue. I never knew the September issue of Vogue was the fashion guideline for the year. September marks a time for change. Thank goodness I started cleaning out my closet this past weekend.

Anna Wintour is Vogue. But, you also learn a little bit about others who work there. It's all very interesting. I am now quite envious of these people who work at Vogue. What a glamorous job? They impact what we choose to put on our bodies. That's powerful!

Anna's daughter's perspective of the fashion industry is quite intriguing.

If you like fashion and you're interested in the behind the scenes of a fashion magazine, I would recommend watching this movie. Husbands and boyfriends probably won't like it, but get your girlfriends together and enjoy!

I loved this movie! I even got my boyfriend to see it in the theater with me and he didn't hate it.

I thought it was interesting to hear her comment on how her siblings find her career amusing (translation = pathetic) and the rest of the fashion world thinks she Godly. I thought her creative director, Grace was pretty funny too. Good show...now I want to see it again!
