The Septemeber Issue DVD Coming

Have you seen "The September Issue" yet? What an amazing, behind the scenes look at fashion! I already have the DVD cuz I'm special, but it comes out Feb 23, so be sure to look for it!

I was actually on a conference call with the director, R.J. Cutler, and got to hear so many interesting insights! He said "You can make a movie in Hollywood without Steven Spielberg's blessing, and you can publish software in Silicon Valley without Bill Gate's blessing, but it's hard to really think of people who have thrived in the fashion industry without Anna Wintour's blessing." The movie really gives you a more holistic view of the industry, and introduces many people to Grace Coddington, Anna Wintour's right hand woman! It's funny, the very first things Grace said to R.J. when she met him was "Go away." A lot of people in the film were concerned with how disruptive the documentary makers would be. Luckily for everyone, they were able to earn their trust and acted quite fly on the wall-esque!

He spoke about a possible upcoming animated film based on a book, "The Catwalk Cats" by Grace Coddington. It tells the story of a year in her life as told by her cats, sounds awesome! But for now, you'll just have to sate your fashion movie thirst with "The September Issue!" There will be tons of bonus features, additional footage, commentary and interviews, hooray!
