Critic Reviews for The September Issue
The frosty Winter is renowned for being something of a human steamroller, but the documentary shows the more interesting character to be her right-hand woman and creative director, Grace Coddington...One for the fashionistas.
Grace, the movie implies, is the genius behind what Vogue really sells, which is romantic aspirational fantasies for women.
While it's fun for fashionholics just to watch a movie in which people say "It's a famine of beauty!" and "The jacket is the new coat," the film becomes more substantial as it narrows its focus to two people: an artist and a curator.
A mesmerizing study of the tension between commerce and creativity.
Coddington, at least, gives us an appreciation of the talent seeing to it that the grandest fashion magazine of them all still sells the dream of glamour with style.
Audience Reviews for The September Issue
It is strangely fascinating to have a close look at the creative process behind the biggest issue of the most influential fashion magazine in the planet and see how one woman's personal opinion can have such an incredible weight and impact on the fashion industry in general.
Kind of interesting, and kind of everything you'd expect it to be. Wanted less of Wintour being bitchy and more of why she was being bitchy.
You're screen will practically frost over from Anna Wintour's icy personality but this is an interesting inside look at the organization of Vogue's big issue.
