As I said before, there might not be a point in going to see “The September Issue,” since so many clips from the documentary are available online. But you’ll find me at the movie theater on Friday night, when the movie comes to NYC, especially after watching the above clip in which fabulous editor-at-large André Leon Talley shows off his Louis Vuitton-Damon-Dash-Ralph-Lauren-Piaget tennis ensemble.

“She’s been doing this for so long, surrounded by men. [...] There’s absolutely a feminist aspect to her. I think a lot of the attacks against her are misogynist. Men in business are totally cutthroat and nobody says bad things about them for it.”

Despite the fact that there are entire scenes in “The September Issue” which involve Anna and her cronies criticizing Sienna for being “toothy” (among other flaws) and plotting ways to Photoshop her image for the cover, last night at the premiere they buddied up for a pap shot on the red carpet. Note: Sienna is not flashing her famous grin. [8/19/09, NYC] Keep reading »
By the time “The September Issue” comes to New York Aug. 28, the entire documentary will be available in bits and pieces on the internet. Two new clips have just been released: one (above) with an editor freaking out about Sienna Miller’s wig not working for the cover shoot, and another (after the jump) of creative director Grace Coddington dressing a model for a photo shoot and talking about how she is the last stylist to buckle models’ shoes.
While some have wondered whether this Vogue documentary will make editor-in-chief Anna Wintour look bad, I worry about how Sienna Miller will deal with the film. Normally, celebrities don’t know exactly what goes into making them look good enough for glossy magazine pages, but the doc shows photographers, hairstylists, and editors focusing on her flaws. It’s no fun having people call you “teeth-y” and talk about your fillings. [via Racked] Keep reading »
Frosty Vogue editrix-in-chief Anna Wintour is slated to yuk it up with David Letterman on his late night show. Why would her Highness deign to gift Dave with her presence? To promote “The September Issue,” a new documentary that chronicles Wintour’s preparations for the massive September 2007 issue of Vogue, following the fashion legend as her team of editors brainstorm, style shoots, and meet with designers.
Could Letterman bring out Wintour’s supposed fun, coquettish side? If he can’t do it, no one can. Set your TiVos for Monday, August 24. [The Cut]

Sienna Miller has a few “spots” that could use a bit of a makeover, or so says famed fashion photographer Mario Testino. We’ve all heard how her head was famously Photoshopped onto a different shot of her body for Vogue‘s 2007 September issue. Now, actual video clips of Mario Testino from R. J. Cutler’s documentary, “The September Issue,” (out August 28th!) have surfaced in which he explicitly points out every single thing on her that “needs” to be Photoshopped. [Defamer] Keep reading »
