Ok so I just went with a few friends to see the September Issue. Anna Wintour came across just as cold as I thought she would be.  In my childhood, I always thought I would want to work for a fashion magazine, but fashion in the documentary seemed kind of harsh and very strict.  Vogue, in particular is very streamlined and it’s ultimately what Anna Wintour says goes. Fashion, in the movie didn’t seem very fun.  If anything, what I love about fashion is the fact that it’s so ridiculous.  You can be anyone by putting on a fur coat or an immaculately tailored black dress. It’s ultimately an escape. Vogue’s fashion editor, Grace Coddington creates that escape.  She seemed genuinely amazing at what she does. If anything, rather than watching a documentary about Anna Wintour I would want to watch a documentary about Grace. So for future movie goers, I would say definitely see the September Issue.  Now every time I flip through the pages of the newest issue of Vogue, I know all the work that went into creating the so called fashion “bible.”


500 Days of Summer

I know this blog is supposed to be strictly dedicated to fashion, but i wanted to take the time to talk about a upcoming movie. Since many of you seem to be somewhat obsessed with Zooey Deschanel, I thought I should talk about one of her new movies. The movie is 500 Days of Summer.  In the flick, Zooey plays Summer, the love interest of Tom, who is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Remember him? From 10 Things I Hate About You? He definitely grew up…in a really really good way. Anyways, Zooey plays a spontaneous young woman, who doesn’t believe in true love.  She has had countless boyfriends and dumped them all.  After hearing that she loves the Smiths (Check out the song: There is a light that won’t go out–AMAZING), Tom falls head over heels in love with her.  The film claims to not be a love story, but I highly doubt the film will play out otherwise. Zooey starts the trailer by breaking up with Tom.  He then proceeds to remember all of their times together hence the film’s title (500 days).  I can’t wait to see this movie.  I’m sure it’s not going to be life-changing, but I think I’ll get some enjoyment out of it and maybe even some style inspiration, Zooey does look cute in the short trailer.  check out the movie in theaters August 20th…
