The September Issue documentary review

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

While browsing on the internet, late at night, I suddenly hear pouring rain outside. It sounds soothing and relaxing. I decide to see what’s on Youtube, and I noticed September Issue, which is the documentary about the making of the September issue of Vogue magazine, which is the thickest fashion magazine issue of the year. This documentary was directed by R.J. Cutler. The camera follows Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor and the Creative Director, Grace Coddington, as they attend fittings, staff meetings, photo shoots, and fashion week during nine months. This documentary describes Vogue magazine’s production process for the September Issue.        

I notice that Vogue magazine’s office looks similar to Runway magazine’s office in The Devil Wears Prada.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Meanwhile, Anna and Grace go to Paris, where the meet with Gaultier as well as check out a fashion show. Then, they go to London. Back to Paris, France. They go to Rome for Sienna Miller’s photo shoot, where she wears a blonde bob wig because she is growing out her hair and it looks terrible. It looks like they put up her hair into a bun instead of wearing a wig.

Andre plays tennis, while dressed in designer Louis Vuitton clothes and accessories, as well as a diamond-studded watch.

Designer Thakoon Panichgul and Andre Leon Talley are featured in this documentary.
