Anna Wintour’s, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, uncanny cut-throat business practices made its debut at the The Devil Wears Prada movie. Where some cut their Vogue dreams dry upon viewing the movie, others found an answer to how the legendary fashion bible kept its pristine and tip-top couture shape. Like Chanel, no matter how many years and fashion quirks we endure, Vogue is a timeless luxury must-have. For me, I found a strange fascination with her success and her perfectly blown-dry trademark bob. She saves the world from fashion mediocrity and manages to keep her hair sickly fabulous. She is my hero.
Within the sartorial circle, we hold our breaths all year for the September issue of Vogue to make its public launch. Knowing the September issue of Vogue as the most coveted issue is like knowing the letters of the alphabet. For those who have just learned this today, congratulations you have officially graduated from kindegarten fashion. It is the thickest issue, with the greatest and most-lauded designers in attendance to debut their Fall collections. Fabulous is an understatement. It normally takes me days to meticulously go through the entire book. This September 2009 is no different. Last year I fell in love with the patterned hoisery in the Chanel ads, and this year I am in love with over-the-knee boots, especially the Stella McCartney Pierced Leather OTK boot. So undeniably sexy that my heart skipped a beat when the paged turned.
Making lemonades out of lemons from the blockbuster satire, Vogue decided to make a movie on Ms. Anna Wintour and the making of Vogue Magazine. Aptly titled The September Issue, the movie will take viewers behind the scenes on the making of the legendary magazine which includes fashion shoots and NY Fashion Week. Anna Wintour, my hero. Always finding a way to shine bright in the limelight despite the scrutizining media, she is sheer brilliance.
The movie is currently playing in New York, and will debut in select cities on September 11. I can’t wait!
