WWD gives us the first look at The September Issue, a documentary film by RJ Cutler with inside access to Anna Wintour and her team about the making of the September 2007 issue of Vogue. Cutler filmed for eight months and got 300 hours of footage which will premiere at Sundance Film Festival this weekend, and Wintour will attend the premiere. “I’m thrilled she’s supporting the film, which is a reflection of how she feels about it,” Cutler told WWD. Besides following around Anna Wintour at work, the film also delves into her relationships with her late father legendary British newspaper editor Charles Wintour, daughter Bee Shaffer and creative director Grace Coddington which wasn’t too fond of Cutler in the beginning but eventually gave them a chance to film. “Thakoon Panichgul has a particularly prominent role, and there are appearances by Oscar de la Renta, Patrick Demarchelier, Karl Lagerfeld, Nicolas Ghesquière, Jean Paul Gaultier, Stefano Pilati, Phillip Lim and Isabel Toledo, among others.” I can’t wait to see this!
