The September Issue is now out on DVD. I watched it last night and it is one of the most engaging and fascinating films about the fashion industry I've yet seen. I now have a total girlcrush on Grace Coddington. Her vision will blow you away and her strength and humor come through in every scene.
The film moves at a fast clip, but maintains a coherent narrative, and it's visually stunning. I'm going to have to watch it again, scene by scene with my finger on the pause button just to take in all of the incredible clothes.
One thing I found irritating though, was at the very beginning Anna Wintour says something to the effect of "people who don't like fashion are just resentful at not being one of the cool people." Grr. Some people really just don't care about fashion, the same way some don't care about sports, and that's fine. Chacun a son gout and all that. But if you love fashion, or even just have a fleeting interest, I highly recommend The September Issue.
