In­side in­ner sanc­tum of feared Ice Queen

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Eguide Movies - ROSIE SQUIRES The Septem­ber Is­sue, ABC1, tonight, 8.30pm

IF YOU think Meryl Streep was con­vinc­ing as cold and de­mand­ing fash­ion mag editor Mi­randa Priestly, wait un­til you meet the real thing.

Editor-in-chief of Amer­i­can Vogue Anna Win­tour is as much feared as she is re­spected.

Tonight, we go in­side Vogue head­quar­ters as the team fever­ishly pre­pares the top-selling Septem­ber is­sue. It’s the real life Devil Wears

Prada and it doesn’t dis­ap­point. The movie-length doco of­fers a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into the world of fash­ion and the peo­ple at the top. Win­tour ( pic­tured) is her­alded as a ge­nius who rules with an iron fist, but it is al­most heart-break­ing to learn her 17-year-old daugh­ter thinks fash­ion is a farce.

Vogue’s cre­ative di­rec­tor Grace Cod­ding­ton steals the show. The for­mer model is un­de­ni­ably pas­sion­ate about her work and the only staffer to stand up to Win­tour, but at times even she is crushed. This is an hon­est and mov­ing snap­shot of the fash­ion world filled with tears, ten­sion and tai­lor­ing night­mares.

The team scru­ti­nise ev­ery­body in­clud­ing top model and ac­tress Si­enna Miller, as they strive for per­fec­tion.

Amaz­ing photo shoots, heart-felt in­ter­views and drool-wor­thy fash­ion.
