Film synopsis –
The September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine weighed nearly five pounds, and was the single largest issue of a magazine ever published. This documentary follows the action behind and beyond the pages, featuring the legendary, and iconic, Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour. Alongside, or more often against, her team of editors as they decide what is in and out.
Review – Obviously my expectations for this film were somewhat heightened by the fact I do what I do. So I can perhaps blame that on the fact that.. it didn’t quite deliver. Yes parts were jaw-dropping and the seeing the disappointment of Grace Coddington, a former model who became a creative director after a car accident, as her shoots get dropped is horrible – but completely relatable. In fact.. I see a bit too much of myself in her than I would like to admit. And it isn’t just the fuzzy halo of unruly ginger hair.
I would however recommend the film as it makes you realise that even in the world of journalism things can be a universe apart.
It probably says a lot that it has taken me until the 23rd of the month to get round to posting about the September issue of etc. Saying it has been busy would be an understatement, but as always it all worked out in the end.
In terms of articles I got to write a whole variety like normal, from interviewing Julian Stephens, an award winning Brighton based jewellery designer, to delving into the history of Butlins as it turns 75 this year and there is a amazing exhibition at Pallant House to celebrate.
As ever, once I have decided I will put an article into my Magazine section (at the top) to read the rest of the magazine or to find out more about etc please click HERE.
