The documentary storms through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors of VOGUE perched with editrix Anna Vintrour and A-team (Grace Coddington, Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley, and many more) and document the step-by-step creation of the 2007 September VOGUE issue; the primetime issue month for VOGUE and most magazines. I noted over 800+ pages in the 2007 September edition in my archive. Can you imagine the vast behind-the-scenes footage R.J. Cutler documented for the aforementioned Fall tome?!!
Before venturing into the menswear expert field, marketing and advertising held my [career] heart. I dissected advertisers and seen the heavy control their ad dollars influenced magazine directions and decisions. VOGUE is completely opposite from other publications when September comes bellowing. Advertisers, ranging from high-glamorous to average denim labels compete for a coveted page in September VOGUE.
To see the behind-the-curtains of a ‘Fashion Bible’ (industry termed) I believe makes this documentary a must-see-must-watch.
