i’m not saying why and i’m not saying how but last night i was lucky enough to see “the september issue” – the new doco which premiered at sundance on anna wintour and the making of the september issue of american vogue. it was rather entertaining to say the least. the woman known as “nuclear wintour” actually isn’t as hardcore as most would think. she knows her job and she knows what page she’s on (pun intended). surprisingly its a little more candid than i expected actually, complete with diss sessions regarding wintour’s calls on creative edits for the issue in the hallways of conde nast from staffers. the biggest revelation however is that the focus shines not so much on the magazine or wintour per se, but rather grace coddington, the equally icy-vibed, flame haired fashion directrice at vogue who i’ve been observing at the shows in paris for years and have not once seen her crack a smile.
