Honestly, if Vogue wants to keep filming documentaries about itself, that is totally fine with me—especially since the trailer for The First Monday in May, a documentary about last year’s Met Ball, portends another juicy, stressful behind-the-scenes saga a la The September Issue.
It's back to the
future indeterminate past this season at Vogue. The page-count is vintage 1991, the styling is vintage 40s, but the direct inspiration for most of the fashion spreads is...somewhat more recent. Let's trace the anxiety of influence!
There is something almost touchingly prelapsarian about The September Issue, R. J. Cutler's documentary about the making of the biggest ever issue of American Vogue.
Holy mother of God, it's here. The September Issue, the long-awaited uncensored look inside Vogue, premiered last night at the Museum of Modern Art. And yes, everyone was there. And yes, there was a delicious mix of glam and bizarro.
September's Harper's Bazaar is 110 editorial pages of beautiful contradictions. Is fall about the 40s or the 80s? Do all black women roam the African savannah, or do some of them also sing in jazz clubs? Photoshop: Pro or con?
