Move Over Project Runway and Hello "September Issue"

Gotta Watch it!

Just saw "September Issue" at Kahala Consolidated and all I can say is "Wow!" If you LoVe watching Reality TV as Much as I do, then you've gotta see this. I'm a Fan of "Project Runway", a FAN FAN of "Rachel Zoe Project", and a big fan of "The Devil Wears Prada", but this movie TOPS it all. Talk about Documentary that gives you a behind the scenes look at what makes the fashion industry tick.

Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour and her friend Grace Coddington, the Creative Director at Vogue, are too interesting for words. You know Miranda Priestly's (Meryl Streep's) office in the "The Devil Wears Prada"? Ok, that's exactly how Anna's office is set up. The running chaos, the cups of Starbucks, the stressed out staff, the quietly authoritative boss...that's the Vogue office. Amazing! The only thing you don't see is Anna's assistant. Nope, no Anne Hathaway to be seen.

Grace and Anna

Have to say "kudos" to Grace Coddington. I LOVe her! In the beginning of the film, I thought "who is she?" bc she doesn't look like she works for Vogue. (Yes, I'm so naive and out of it. ) Then, as the documentary progressed and you hear her and watch her work her magic and see the beauty of the art she creates, she seemingly turns into the loving offbeat fiery down-to-earth extraordinarily talented figure who looks gorgeous! To know her is to LoVe her and by golly, I did at the end of the movie. Yayyyy Grace!

If you're interested in the fashion world, a fan of anyone of the various fashion reality shows, love "The Devil Wears Prada", then you better put on your running shoes and get on down to your nearest theatre and sit back and soak it all in. I didn't even need to chomp on a tub of overly expensive and deadly movie popcorn...it was that good.

Check out the preview below...it's fab!
