Sundance unveils documentary on American Vogue
ShinyStyle's Andrea Kiliany Thatcher writes...
What we wouldn't give to be in the audience at Sundance among the first to see R.J. Cutler's film chronicling the making of the September issue of Vogue magazine. Anna Wintour herself will attend the premiere in a rare show of support for any media exposure of her magazine.
WWD goes so far as to say that the film chronicles the last hurrah of the luxury boom, and hints that footage may include Anna talking about the end of her career.
What else do we want to see?
1. What everyone's wearing, duh.
2. The fashion closet.
3. What Voguettes eat.
4. Anna displaying any of the mannerisms found in The Devil Wears Prada.
Cutler says enigmatically: "My observation with the creativity in the hallways and offices is that Vogue is like the mist. You don't think it's raining and all of a sudden you're soaking wet."
Apparently creative director Grace Coddington wasn't as supportive as Anna.
"She couldn't throw us out of the building because she's not the boss," Cutler recalled. "Anna's the boss and she had invited us in. But she was unhappy to see us. And when Grace is unhappy to see you, that's not the place anyone wants to be. God bless her, she [eventually] gave us a chance."
Other notables you can hope to see include Thakoon Panichgul, Oscar de la Renta, Patrick Demarchelier, Karl Lagerfeld, Nicolas Ghesquière, Jean Paul Gaultier, Stefano Pilati, Phillip Lim and Isabel Toledo.
