The September Issue

“The September Issue,” R.J. Cutler’s documentary, just hit New York theaters yesterday. The film covers the making of Vogue’s largest issue ever produced- the 2007 September issue featuring Sienna Miller on its cover.

If Anna Wintour is the devil that sits on fashion’s padded shoulders dictating who’s in, who’s out and what we’ll see walking down the runways, then Grace Cottington is the angel forging fantasies of couture and shining a soft light on designer’s masterpieces. The film covers the love/hate relationship, geniuses and nuances of Vogue’s editor Wintour and creative director Cottington. Add a splash of Andre (the Vuitton toting, kimono wearing Andre), a sprig of a wig clad Sienna, shots of Lagerfeld, Thakoon, Testino and more of fashion’s power players and you have the delicious concoction that is the September Issue.

The September Issue releases September 11th in Los Angeles and select cities. Don’t forget to check out Vogue’s current September issue featuring Charlize Theron!
