Great script, but not enough of the great fashion scenes, but the few there were--awesome. The brilliant elegance and intellectuality of fashion come through in the film, and A. Wintour's character is the convincing well-dressed business woman of Vogue. The very sad part is that Ms. Wintour took a pro-fur approach on one season that helped the fur industry, instead of sticking with the "real people wear fake fur" and helping the fake fur industry, and protecting wildlife.

A peek into the superficial world of fashion journalism.

This documentary about the making of the thick September issue of Vogue magazine was interesting. Anna Wintour, Vogue's editor, comes across as a reserved, enigmatic and in control (and beautifully dressed!) woman who knows what she wants. Other staff are also featured, especially the creative Grace who sets up photo shoots. A good insider's view of the fashion industry.

I watched this because of a friend's recommendation. Interesting to see the power that Anna Wintour has. I liked Grace so much better. I pretty much feel the same way about fashion as Wintour's daughter.

Interesting to see the inner workings of Vogue magazine. Unfortunately I felt uncomfortable watching Anna Wintour as she reminded me of one of my bosses - akkkk!

Try as it might, this documentary can't succeed in villainizing Anna Wintour as a brutal Ice Queen for her astutely autocratic approach to editing the American version of Vogue Magazine. It gives seasoned fashionistas the thrill of watching Wintour, her ace but occasionally behind-the-times Creative Director Grace Coddington, & (more briefly) such justly celebrated haute couturiers as Jean Paul Gaultier and Oscar de la Renta in action. For fashion novices, it also serves as a primer outlining Wintour's recent achievements in raising the profile & commercial strength of fashion on this side of the Pond. But whatever you do, kids, don't buy into the film's misleading pretence that New York is the centre & pulse of the fashion universe--because it simply isn't so.
