Every year a record-breaking number of people can‚t wait to get their hands on the September issue of Vogue. The 2007 issue was and remains the biggest ever, weighing over four pounds, reaching an audience of thirteen million people and impacting the $300-billion global fashion industry more than any other single publication. An intimate, funny and surprising look at Anna Wintour and her team of editors as they create this must-have „fashion bible,‰ filmmaker R.J. Cutler explores the untouchable glamour of Vogue to reveal the extraordinarily passionate people at its heart. The documentary takes viewers behind the scenes at Fashion Week, to Europe, on photo shoots and reshoots, and into closed-door staff meetings, bearing witness to an arduous, entertaining, and sometimes emotionally demanding process.
At the eye of this annual fashion hurricane is the two-decade relationship between Wintour and Grace Coddington, incomparable Creative Director and fashion genius. They are perfectly matched for the age-old conflict between creator and curator. Through them, we see close-up the delicate creative chemistry it takes to remain at the top of the ever-changing fashion field.
