      ‘The September Issue’ is a feature length, fly-on-the-wall documentary about the making of the September 2007 issue of Vogue Magazine. This would be of interest to anyone wanting to see what the real Anna Wintour is like - editor-in-chief of Vogue - rather than the bitch that Meryl Streep portrayed in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’.

      Anna was not nearly so dreadful, she is just clearly someone who knows what she


      wants.

      The person in this documentary who struck me as more of a bitch was the creative director, Grace Coddington who features heavily and she is certainly not afraid of clashing with Anna.

      I cannot help feeling that Sienna Miller might be a little offended at what was said behind her back in this documentary as when she arrived at the offices for a photo shoot for the cover there ...


      • were comments from Grace about her messy hair, her fillings showing when she smiled and her neck, “we’ll fix the neck” as they planned what they were going to photoshop out of the photos.

        They certainly did not want anyone who looks like an actual human being on the cover, but I knew it was a shallow business!

        Amusingly, Anna’s daughter reminds me a little of Saffy from ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ as

        she sat there, sneering at her mother’s business for being the shallow affair that it is.

        She wants to go into law instead, she says.

        I enjoyed this documentary as I love the magazines and it was fascinating to see how the finished masterpiece that is Vogue comes together.

        Anna Wintour does know what she is doing and.

        she is not the bitch from the ‘Prada’ film at all.
