The September Issue premiere at MOMA
Last night The Museum of Modern Art hosted the premiere of the highly anticipated September Issue. Ironically Wintour arrived with Sienna Miller, who's looks were criticized strongly in the film (during her shoot for the Vogue September 07 cover). The list of Wintour's "friends" that attended the screening was filled with the fashion It crowd. Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta and obviously the bigger than life Andre Leon Tally were all present. Tally and Grace Coddington (Vogue Creative Director) both shied away from taking pictures on the red carpet in order to give the full attention to Wintour. This was very kind of Coddington considering that she is said to be the true star of the film.
The reviews of the movie are good so far, and the crowd spent the night commenting on Anna's extremely valuable influence on the fashion industry. Many designers credited her with helping them break into the fashion world and gain success that they otherwise might not have achieved.
Although Anna maintained tame at this even we are still anxiously awaiting her appearance on Letterman on the 24th. We may be more excited for Letterman than we are for the actual movie...
