As the wealth on Wall Street and Main Street emptied out, they seem to be pouring into Hollywood Boulevard & Fifth Avenue. Hot on the heels of hot TV shows, “Stylista” & “Project Runway”, and movies such as “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “Cocoa Avant Chanel” comes a new documentary on the making of the September 2007 issue of Vogue, staring Anna Wintour as herself, slated for release in September 2009 (of course, what do you expect?)
The documentary won the Grand Jury Prize for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
As Wintour says of the film “It’s hard to look at yourself when you’re used to being on the other end of the camera.” I’m not sure if she liked what she saw, or how she was potrayed.
In some ways, it also makes you wonder – who are we really, when reflected in another’s eyes? Are we the flightly cheery individual? The serious professional? Or the whining spoilt brat? One individual, so many perspectives.
