What with Coco before Chanel, The September Issue and now Rage, going to the cinema is becoming quite a fashionable affair. The latest, Rage, is Sally Potter’s new film which sees a school boy use his mobile phone to shoot people at a New York fashion house. Secretly posting the items on the internet, what starts as something innocent results in the unveiling of an industry in crisis only further dragged down by an untimely murder investigation from a runway accident. Jude Law (looking surprisingly natural in drag!), Lily Cole (great with blonde hair), Dame Judy Dench and Eddie Izzard are just a few of the big start names to appear in Rage which takes on a unique style of filming whereby monologues in front of the camera see each actor in isolation, shot close up against eye-popping flat color backgrounds. A unique screening took place last night where a live satellite broadcast the film to select cinemas across the UK. A live Q&A session follwed for the world’s first multi-venue interactive premiere.

The September Issue

This is exciting. This September we can enjoy a behind the scenes documentary of The Devil herself Anna Wintour, editing the very important ‘fall’ – as the Americans say – issue of Vogue. The September issue is traditionally the biggest and highest selling of the year.

Anna Wintour rarely does interviews, so the fact she has allowed cameras to follow her is a brilliant opportunity for us to glimpse her ruling the roost of the fashion industry. In one clip we see her telling Oscar de la Renta he should not use a look in his collection – yes, she has that much power. She does have that annoying English/American hybrid accent though, but hey, she can’t have everything.
