The September Issue

I've said it before, I'll say it again.
I'm straight up addicted to Netflix.
All its recommendations, so friendly.
Taking the guesswork out of movie selection; so thoughtful.

Anyways, a few weeks ago I watched The September Issue {2009}, based on a recommendation from Netflix.
It was some nonsense about The, yup, September issue of VOGUE.
Something I really don't know much about, because I have better things to do, like write papers and make PowerPoints, oh, and did I mention spending my birthday in the library...what a wonderful, adventure-filled life I am leading.

I like fashion as much as the next girl, I can deal equally with the conceptual-designers and the ready-to-wear ones. This movie spend less time on the fashion & more time on the behind the scenes malarkey.

I think we have all heard the horror stories of Anna Wintour {aka alledged inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada}. I wouldn't classify her as bitchy, merely a strong black woman. Who maybe needs to put on some weight. Her daughter, Bee, who briefly appeared in the movie, was super cute & seemed normal & was an aspiring lawyer. So, Anna must not be such a terrible person if she can raise a seemingly normal human being.

The movie was entertaining, if slightly longer than it needed to be...for me anyways. The two most entertaining characters were Grace Coddington & Andre Leon Talley {aka new ANTM judge & creator of the non-word "dreckitude"}. Basically, characters is the only word I can think of to appropriately describe these two fashion heavy-weights. Less screen time with Anna & more Grace & Andre please! While Andre is already on a reality show thanks to T.Banks, I can see him on his own one day...unintentionally hilarious!

Here are some of the best stills from the movie/the ones I managed to capture...please dig the one of Andre playing snazzy.
