The REAL Devil Wears Prada...As I reported back in June here on this lovely blog of mine--my friend Jane Cha, executive producer of Project Runway, and director RJ Cutler had invited me to a very special screening of a new documentary of his called The September Issue. Smilin' RJ: Director of "The September Issue" RJ Cutler, flanked by actress Sienna Miller and Bee Shaffer (Anna Wintour's daughter) The movie, as you may now know, is all about Anna Wintour and the behind-the-scenes creation of Vogue's September Issue from two years ago with actress Sienna Miller on the cover. Without telling you too much, I was especially fascinated by how RJ captured the love-hate struggle of the documentaries two protagonists, fashion editor Grace Coddington (love her!), who seems to be the "Heart of Vogue" and Miss Anna Wintour (who is ALL BUZINESSS!!!). Editor and Cover Girl: Anna Wintour (giving you PRINTS!) and actress Sienna Miller The Andre Leon Talley can't-live-without-his-Louis-Vuitton tennis playing scene was another highlight. It goes without saying that I loved it. Well kiddies, in case you've been living under a "Fashion Rock", it is September and the movie has arrived in Theaters in New York (It will be in Los Angeles and select cities on September 11) and it's received FANTASTIC reviews. Bosom Buddies: Jane Cha, RJ Cutler, Kyle McLachlan and Desiree Gruber--all looking very chic! My friend Jane, has been "traveling the world" as it were, along with RJ going to all the premieres--including London and NY. I know that RJ doesn't need my help in promoting---and touting the fabulousness--of his great movie, but alas, I will still say: Go See The September Issue, it's SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!.
