fashion is a religion. this is the bible

Review: "The September Issue" a movie by R.J. Cutler
The Devil Wears Prada has been one of my favorite movies for a really long time so I was super excited when I heard about this one. Since it's a documentary it didn't show in theaters here in Finland, so I had to wait until it was available on DVD. I got it earlier because I ordered it from amazon but her in Finland it will be available in stores by March 10th.
In this movie we take a look at Anna Wintour's life, the people she works with and the making of the september issue. It was really nice to see what actually happens during the making of an issue and how much hard work is being put in. In the beginning Anna is shown as the ice woman she is known for but towards the end you can really see someone who is a loving mother and very passionate about their job.
Other people featured were Grace Coddington who is the creative director, editor-at-large André Leon Talley, designers like Thakoon etc etc. I don't want to give too much away but the last photo shoot was really cool (like all the other ones as well)
In conclusion this movie is amazing and I recommend it to everyone who is interested in fashion. I've seen it 4 times in the past 5 days and it still doesn't get boring.
