Behind The Cover - Vogue Magazine

Years ago, I had the opportunity to work with R.J. Cutler when he produced The War Room, and another project. Now, RJ has turned his documentary style on Anna Wintour at Vogue, for an amazing look behind the scenes at what goes into the most important fashion tome of every year, the September Issue of Vogue. Rivaling many cities' entire phone book in size, the best fashion and best fashion photography are showcased every year in this issue. This is a real-life incarnation of The Devil Wears Prada, which was based upon Wintour, and played by Glenn Close. I can't wait to see the movie. Here's the trailer.

The Devil Wears Prada is my daughters' favorite movie. I've seen it more times than I can count, and for me the most interesting bits are the photography scenes.

The main character, Miranda, was played by Meryl Streep, not Glenn Close.

Bless your pointy head...
Meryl Streep was the Miranda character.

Fine reporting, John.

Oh, BTW, next time they herd you into the Oval Office, Obama is that dark skinned fellow behind the desk.

Correction - Glenn Close was the star of "The Devil" she was just wearing the skin of Meryl Streep - as does Wintour wear the skin of a similar and unlucky homo sapien to disguise the alien beneath.
