The September Issue

I had missed 'The September Issue' during its short cinema release, so today's storm presented the perfect opportunity to watch it at home while flicking through the Sunday magazines.

My favourite scenes were any with Grace Coddington, the Creative Director of American Vogue, who seems to be the only person in the documentary who challenges Anna Wintour's decisions on wardrobe selection and magazine narrative.

Grace is a fascinating woman with a strong creative vision based on both her own experiences as model and her vast knowledge of historical references. One of my favourite segments was where she fought - but lost - her case to include the 20's-inspired Galliano spread which she had styled and directed.
