The highly quotable trailer for RJ Cutler’s documentary The September Issue is out, leading up to the September premiere. The trailer features many familiar faces—Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld, Mario Testino, Grace Coddington, Candy Pratts Price, Coco Rocha, Caroline Trentini—and of course the film’s main focus, the one and only Anna Wintour.
From the trailer, it’s clear that Wintour is not far from her hard-nosed rep. She seems to strike both fear and awe from the likes of designers, stylists and Vogue staffers. Thakoon Panichgul even likens her to “Madonna,” not sure in what context, but they do have ripped arms in common.
One thing I’m definitely looking forward to is seeing more of Vogue‘s creative director Grace Coddington, who comes across as wry and sharp yet very amiable—an excellent counterpoint to Wintour’s daunting presence.
