This is the trailer of The September Issue, directed by RJ Cutler and covers the making of Vogue’s September 2007 issue (its biggest issue of the year). After watching the two and a half minute montage, I just can’t wait for the movie to be released on Sep 11. This is the real-life Devil Wears Prada!  Anna Wintour is portrayed as fashion’s most powerful force. She is revered and feared by everyone around her, as Thakoon Panichgul proclaims “Anna is like Madonna”. Even Karl Lagerfeld looks nervous as she inspects a new Chanel piece, eventually declaring, “It’s gorgeous.” And Anna delivers the best one-liners. “This type seems so large and pretentious, it looks like it’s for blind people.” She tells Mario Testino about his September 2007 cover mockups with Sienna Miller. At a runthrough with a shrinking Oscar de la Renta, she remarks: “I personally would not put this one in the show. The other things you’ve shown us are more exciting.” Anna also scolds stylist Edward about his work for the magazine: “Where’s the glamour? It’s Vogue, okay? Please, let’s lift it.” No wonder editors have taken to bootlegging elusive screener copies of the film.
