"I started at American Vogue the same day as Anna did," Grace says. "I think we understand each other. She knows I'm stubborn, I know she's stubborn. I know when to stop pushing her . . . she doesn't know when to stop pushing me."
“People constantly make the mistake of comparing London with New York, Milan and Paris and that's not what it's about. London has its own fashion identity. You come here to find the next Alexander McQueen or John Galliano.”
Starting from this moment, there is no more time for me to express amusement around or making stupid shaggy dog story just to please everyone. I have to be stern all the time. For your information, this year will be my closing year as a fashion student and I have to work triple than the usual. Can you believe it? When I wake up early in the morning, the first thing that came up to my mind would be, lord….THESIS! Well….there is nothing to be worried about. I’m fully equipped physically and mentally to face this commission and hopeful it will be easy, breezy and beautifully completed.
What, no color in this collection, Stefano? No evening? Boring.......
After watching the real ‘The Devil Wears Prada’- The September issue, it gives me some sort of enthusiasm to really appreciate what I’m really doing now. I’m in love with this documentary kind of film because; well…..it’s Anna Wintour baby! Anna Wintour is the brains behind Vogue. Madame Anna is my icon and she’s so inspiring and real. I’ve been watching this 10 times already and it was great and ……..speechless! Watching this film gives such a big impact to me. There is no such word to describe Anna’s passion for fashion and of course passion for VOGUE. It is hard to believe!
In this documentary about the life and work of Vogue editor Anna Wintour and her creative director, Grace Coddington- there is a lot of things going on while making this extraordinary bible of fashion-The September Issue of 2007 and for me this is completely amazing and there is nothing hidden. Everything is revealing and incredibly remarkable. Being a legendary editor-in chief for 20 years at VOGUE is a tough position and she did her best to remain at the crown of fashion field. For me, she is the supernatural being of fashion! There’s nobody can take that position from her.
What is that?
Being Anna Wintour is like being a Superior Class Woman. All her expressions and everything seem to be so imperative and amazingly hard to defeat. What I really love about Anna Wintour is the fact that she is through the years, has become regarded as one of the most powerful people in fashion, setting trends and anointing new designers. What I learn from the movie is the charming side of Anna Wintour, her wonderful persona, passionate and so committed to celebrating beauty and her radical notion that clothes, models and photographers could tell stories and not just be objects. When I look at her ‘iconic’ style, pageboy bob haircut and frequently-worn sunglasses- that’s it, this is Anna Wintour and u can’t say anything about it and she might say that- this is my style and it will remain forever! So, what else?
