The September Issue, R. J. Cutler's documentary about putting together the September 2007 issue of Vogue, premiered at Sundance over the weekend. Anna Wintour attended a screening Saturday afternoon wearing a leather Michael Kors jacket with a fox collar, an Oscar de la Renta turtleneck, J Brand jeans, and Manolo Blahnik boots. This was her version of "mountain casual." "It is actually my first time wearing jeans to work,” she told WWD. But that's not all — the typically mum editrix chatted on:
“This is very much R.J.’s film. I want to make it very clear that he had complete freedom to put together the movie that he wanted and it’s not in any way Vogue behind him telling him what he can and cannot do,” she said. Asked if she placed any restrictions on filming or editing, Wintour replied, “He showed us the film a little while ago and we made a few suggestions, all of which he ignored.”
That's a lot of words for a red-carpet encounter with Anna. Could she be revealing a friendlier, chattier self? Because this interview is basically the opposite of the one in which she told us to go away and leave her alone. To think we felt lucky after that encounter, because often she doesn't even say two words to reporters. WWD notes that she's given an "admiring" portrayal in the film. Indeed, she seemed quite pleasant in the clip from the movie we shared with you last week. We wonder if this film — in the midst of such a difficult time for Vogue with such frenetic speculation about Anna's imminent departure — is part of Anna's attempt to revamp her image to help solidify her reigning editor-in-chief-dom.
If you're not airing out your mountain-casual threads in Sundance along with Anna, you can watch the film on A&E this year. The airdate hasn't been determined.
