A FAMINE OF BEAUTY


Samantha and I went to go see The September Issue today. It was just released in Canada (about 2 months after it was released in the US - ugh) and isn't playing in many theaters. Overall review is it was definitely worth the wait. Anna Wintour is beyond fabulous - the fear she inspires, the perfection she demands, the power she yields - The September Issue was a inspired look at the behind-the-scenes development of fashions most influential magazine and it's matriarch. I was surprised by how much Anna revealed in the movie and how much credit was given to others (i.e. Grace Coddington's creative genius was beautifully displayed and her love/hate working relationship with Anna was fascinating to watch). The movie even had moments of comic relief. Samantha and I both agreed that the best part of the movie was Andre Leon Talley's tennis lesson where he showed up with Louis Vuitton luggage (for his water bottles), a Louis Vuitton tennis racket cover, Louis Vuitton towel and vintage diamond tennis watch. If you haven't seen the movie yet, I would highly recommend it!
