    A Peek Into Anna's (Or Grace's) September Issue



    Caught The September Issue a couple of days ago; and it was beyond, awesome! It was great, to have the chance to have an exclusive peek; into the life, of the woman who single handedly, took charge, of the fashion industry.

    But of course, what was even better, was the chance to see how things WORKED, in Vogue(: The closet; the sheer number of clothes, and shoes, and stuff spilling out are just to die for; it's like, only at Vogue, it does not seem frivolous to be extravagant- or, there isn't such a thing, as being tooo, extravagant.



    But what truly captures my attention in this documentary was Grace Coddington; She's such an amazing woman; with a STRONG personality (that's probably an understatement, considering how she stood up for herself against Anna!) She's got both beauty and brains; and she's extremely witty. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that she's BRILLIANT, to think of using the production crew in the Colorblocking photo shoot!



    However I have to agree with what Anna's daughter, Bee Shaffer had to say about the industry; fashion is meant to be fun, and an expression of who you are; but some people are just; copying straight out from the pages of Vogue; which in fact, isn't very stylish at all. Sure, you may be fashionable, but if I were to take Vogue away from the person, what would he or she do?!

    Now, that's a food for thought.

    To end off; I was very inspired after the movie, to do something, Vogue-ish, and so, I was very hard pressed, to take a picture, in front of this beautiful, cobble stoned wall; (who cares if Anna might just have a heart attack if she were to see me, hah!)



    I was in a very casual, and very blue mood, that day;

    Shirt; Tommy Hilfiger
    Shorts; Cotton On
    Heels; Prima Vera (They're Esther's! And they're just so cute!)
    Bag; Mulberry


    Okay, I'm off to tidying up my room; after which; I'll be having a bumper post; filled with some of my favorite buys from Taipei!


    Love ya!

    This film is showing in a single theater here, I haven't had the chance to see it yet, but I'm dying to! Must be indeed so exciting to see how things work inside the magazine..
    Ah, you look adorable! :)

    You have made me want to see this film even more than I already did - unfortunately, the theater near me thinks it's right not to show it. So unfair! :(

    I love her quote “fashion is meant to be fun, and an expression of who you are; but some people are just; copying straight out from the pages of Vogue; which in fact, isn't very stylish at all. Sure, you may be fashionable, but if I were to take Vogue away from the person, what would he or she do?!” I totally agree with her.

    Bee Shaffer has her own philosophy of fashion and style. And I love that about her.

    Grace is so BRILLIANT! For me, she is the soul of the mag...more than Anna to me...don't you think?

    I also saw the video, it is pure delight!

    Many kisses dear Penelope!

    hi there!
    I watched September Issue last week. I loved it because it gives us a real peak into how the fashion industry works. It Is not as glamorous as it is portrayed. And Anna unfortunatel isn't even happy to have a job that many would kill for...lol...She seems indifferent, most of the time. Grace should have been at the head of Vogue...not Anna. But then that's my personal opinion...

    Great blog!

    cheers,

    xoxo
