The September Issue is a documentary about the making of Vogue’s 2007 September issue. The stars of the documentary are Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief, and Grace Coddington a Creative Director at Vogue. You can catch glimpses of the inspiration for The Devil Wear’s Prada‘s Miranda Priestly character. I wouldn’t say that Anna is cruel, but she is extremely intimidating. Her silent glare and decisive few words make a new designer’s hands shake during a presentation.
Grace is the real star of the film. She is passionate about her work, but she knows how to control her emotions. I think a lot of young people could learn from Grace on how to deal with office politics.
This movie has been in my Netflix Instant queue forever and I am glad I finally watched it. If you like Project Runway, The Devil Wears Prada, or my favorite guilty pleasure show The Rachel Zoe Project, then you will like The September Issue.
Have you seen the film? Did you like it? Or is it still sitting in your queue like mine did forever?
