last week I watched The September Issue, honestly I was expecting something else, something slightly better, I mean we were expecting to see things gets canceled and changed last minute esp. at Vogue, some panic, drama, late deadlines, we kind of expected all of this, but nothing was too shocking or unusual. The movie showed a slightly softer side of Anna, maybe not in a direct way, but because we always see her very serious, and doesn't wanna talk, but watching her talking to the camera, smiling , makes you think, after all she is a human, and she has a soft, nice side.
from some of the scenes in the movie, you can see how influential and powerful Anna is, talking to department stores CEO's , checking collections before they are displayed, there is one scene with Stefano Pilati while she was checking his collection, it was obvious she didn't really like it and how he looked terrified! it was nice to see that, designers always look and sound very tough and confident, but not so much infront of Anna, also the snobbish editors I ran into in Paris and how they behave infront of her! :) It was also nice to see how she supports young designers ( Thakoon in the movie), and how if she believes in someone, she can easily boost their business, with probably a single page in the magazine.
Last night I was flipping through the Oct. issue, and looking at the editorials, or the interviews, makes you think how did they end up with this, how many other pictures they took, why did they pick up those pictures, and everything it makes you go through the whole movie again but with the material in hands.
here is a trailer of the movie incase you didn't see it yet, and if you've seen it, let me know what do you think!
