The September Issue
Today I went with a friend to see the new documentary 'The September Issue', i was drooling the entire time. Although Anna Wintour was already my idol she has been joined by the phenomonal creative director Grace Coddington. Grace is an absolute genius and probably the most passionate person in the whole film, Welsh romantic and fabulous Grace dresses demurely in mainly black and yet I have never seen anyone with a more creative and beautiful vision.
Many critics are saying that Grace stole the film from Anna. That Anna was again portrayed as the tyrant, but in my eyes it's reality not as 'gawker' said a stop on Anna's 'Make-People-Like-Me-Before-My-Contracts-Up-Tour 2009' instead i feel its Anna's attempt to show the real her even if it IS similair to the character portrayed by Streep in the blockbuster 'The Devil Wears Prada'. I have gained even MORE admiration for Anna snce seing this documentary but also immense respect for Grace and a fabulous behind the scenes glimpse on what a Creative Director does (my dream is to artistc/creative director and stylist for photo shoots). Anyone who has not caught the film MUST do so especially while it's still in cinemas - those clothes on the big screen are phenomonal.
