More To Come........
I don't know how but I have see parts of this film and I particularly remember Grace's frustration at not getting Anna's
agreement over certain photos and garments and the time when Sienna Miller came to try out various looks.
It was quite riveting to see two such redoubtable women (Anna and Grace) coming head to head. They are both courageous - I remember Anna braving the anti-fur terrorists with some dead animal slung round her neck and Grace's fortitude after her accident.
I think they need each other - a bit like The Odd Couple.
Great post Naomi:)
And doesn't Anna look great? And Grace looks as if she has stepped out of a Pre-Raphaelite painting.
I always admire creative people even if I don't admire what they've created. Does that make sense?
I've noticed in many photos Anna Wintour looks very controlled and doesn't like to express her feelings too much, I kind of find that appealing.
I never would have discovered this film without your review - can't wait to see it! Despite the fact that I never wear anything but jeans, I have a passion for fashion (don't tell anyone, but my favorite tv show is Project Runway).
Wow, what a fun review! I feel like I've been there already. I had not heard of this film but it looks beautiful, and I agree that these are two fascinating women. I love all the photographs, thank you. After this wonderful peek, I think I shall see if I can get the adorable husband (he who is in charge of Netflix) to order this one.
I will get this film. I have never read Vogue, but it has been coming to my home for 30 years. My partner loves fashion and the crative process involved. She will adore this movie. (She probably already has it in out Netflix que.) Your post has me worked up to see it too.
Although Vogue is not on my list, (I spend too much time with Backpacker), the documentary sounds interesting. Good documentaries take a subject and make it intriguing to those of us who've never thought twice about what's being shown. Given that I'm now intrigued, this one sounds like a success.
The only time I have ever paged through Vogue is at the hairdresser. I know nothing of these women except what I saw in The Devil Wears Prada, but I know that the movie must be good if it details their creative process.
I would love to see this film having worked in the 'rag trade' long ago. Thank you for the glimpse!
I remembered when I was a teenager I have to save money to buy Vogue Mag because it is directly from the US and I was fascinated by the fasion world :D
It is so interesting to see your post on this and about Anna & Grace :D
I just read a review of this film on another blog
the young woman who went to see it loved the aspects covering fashion photography and how it is a art regardless of how commercial it is
these photos are wonderful!!
I'll look for the film
How can anyone come away from this post not wanting to see this film?? I'm not a fan of Vogue, but like LL Cool Joe says, I can appreciate the art without loving it. The process, what goes on behind the scenes, the passion of the artists...all these things are appealing by themselves.
I will add this to my queue, of course, and let you know how I like it. It'll be a while since my son and daughter are getting into Netflix now and are moving their selections to the top of the list w/out telling me! lol
Happy Sunday, my friend! I hope to talk with you again soon!! xo
That sounds fascinating and I'll definitely find it for netflix. I have subscribed to Vogue off and on through the years although not for some time now. I do find creative processes to be interesting.
This is a great review of the film. I just saw it on DVD Friday and it put me in a wonderful, inspired mood. Loved seeing the creative process unfold.
I love documentaries too and am happy that a magazine can still be successful in this digital age. I'm sure I would like the film.
Our Cafe del Sol just closed, just did a tribute where your famous call to me while playing Scrabble there is mentioned.
I HAVE to see this film. Thanks for the great post and recommendation!
I have never been a reader of Vogue but I have to say that this film sounds very interesting!
I think it's so creative the ideas for films that people come up with.
Thanks for the great review Naomi!
Like kenju, I only read Vogue at the hairdressers. Five pounds issue, yikes.
Your review is enough to have me put it in my queue. Thanks
Now I have to watch the film! We think that colleagues and partners in life have to be "the same"- yet the synergy of opposite viewpoints- when there is love and respect- can be so much more rewarding- and interesting.
I leafed through a recent issue in a waiting room somewhere, still annoyed at the emaciated models that are in every ad. Why do they have to use models that weigh 80 pounds and look nothing like a 'normal' woman?
saw that documentary when it played locally.
it was lively and not overly torqued the way some are. it did feel behind the scenes like a fly on the wall more than most. interesting ladies.
Very interesting Naomi, thanks for the review. They are so different arent they, these two women. Grace doesnt seem to wear makeup and her hair is so wild. And Anna is so controlled looking and perfect in her looks. I must catch this one now as I think I would indeed enjoy it.
