CRITIC'S PICK

'The September Issue'

November 05, 2009|Betsy Sharkey

If you loved "The Devil Wears Prada," do catch "The September Issue" before it leaves town. In R.J. Cutler's delicious documentary, you glimpse the dragon lady in action as fashion diva, Vogue Editor Anna Wintour puts together her fall issue, which is as notoriously fat as she is thin. While "September's" a natural for the fashionistas in our midst, it's also terrific fun for the jeans and T-shirt crowd -- that would include me. One of its great pleasures is Grace Coddington, a wild-haired Welsh force of nature nearing 70, a Vogue creative genius and one of the few willing to tangle with the queen. Those tangles are pure pleasure, as is this tour of the fashion world, perhaps as foreign a country for you as it was for me. But with Cutler as guide, it's a fabulous trip.
