Anna Wintour introduced the idea of celebrities on the cover of Vogue and continues the tradition with supermodel Sienna Miller on the 2007 cover. Sienna does a glamorous photo shoot in Rome. Meanwhile, other shoots are going on in Paris that are truly beautiful.
Wintour is known as being very opinionated. So, much of the documentary follows the creative process of her staff presenting clothing lines, photos, and ideas to her, only to have them shot down.
In the end, the September issue makes it to press, 100 pages larger than ever in Vogue history.
SEPTEMBER ISSUE is a compelling documentary for those who follow fashion and look forward to the annual September issue of Vogue. The camera crew diligently follows the creative process. It’s fascinating to see what all must go in to create the magazine.
However, for those who don’t follow fashion, it does on a bit too long. Also, there is some brief foul language. Otherwise, the movie has very little objectionable comment and is an insightful look into the fashion world.
