People scared of and/or rejected by Anna Wintour in the trailer of 'The September Issue': Thakoon Panichgul, Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld, Grace Coddington, Mario Testino and Edward Enninful. And that's in a brief two-and-a-half minutes of footage.
Director RJ Cutler's upcoming documentary seems to be a sort of real-life 'The Devil Wears Prada' that chronicles the making of Vogue's September 2007 issue, its largest ever. Text on the Sienna Miller cover is too large ("It looks like it's for blind people," says Wintour), a de la Renta runway look is not "exciting"...the people this editor has to deal with!
Wintour is said to have members of her staff patrolling Facebook for feedback about the movie, and with screener copies hard to come by, even major editors and designers are hosting secret global watch parties. When the film comes out Sept. 11, we'll be watching with our own September issues in hand.
