Critic Reviews for The September Issue
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.
An insider's view of high fashion's ultimate tastemakers proves it's not just for aficionados.
Audience Reviews for The September Issue
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.
this is probably a special interest documentary. i know alot of people feel fashion is frivolous and it is of course. it's a kind of fantasy world that's fairly divorced from reality but for a small and elite crowd, it is a religion. the film shows us the people behind the fashion bible, vogue's september issue, including the ice queen, anna wintour, played by meryl streep in the devil wears prada, her senior editor and former 60's model grace coddington, a true genius of fashion who steals the film from anna, the fabulous andre leon talley, photographers like mario testino and patrick demarchelier at work, various designers, etc. if none of this means anything to u, then u won't care about this film, but as someone who grew up with vogue, inspired by the fashion and especially the wonderful photography, all this was pretty fascinating. i don't read fashion magazines now but this one really opened my eyes as a kid until the edgier elle took over in the 90's
