Why are you going to Macy's in Queens for Fashion’s Night Out? “I intend to make as many stops as I can. But it seemed to me, since the mayor has so graciously agreed to be part of it, it was very important to him that it be inclusive, so that’s a great place to start.” —Anna Wintour

Sienna Miller

Were you nervous about filming this at all? “I think I was afraid it would really interfere with what I do, with my job, and get in the way. So at first, I didn’t want to do it. And then when it became obvious that I was going to have to get involved, pushed into it ... I had a great time.” —Grace Coddington

Renée Zellweger

Did you get any free clothes from your experience directing this film? “No, one doesn’t get clothes as a documentarian. But I learned a lot about the fashion industry, and I’m grateful for that.” —R. J. Cutler, Director

What is your relationship like with Anna Wintour? “She’s like a godmother to me. She probably doesn’t know that, but I’ve adopted her as a godmother to me in fashion, because she’s the first one who took me to the shows in Paris.” —Sean "Diddy" Combs
