In Vogue: The Editors Eye

Produced and directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, in association with HBO - the network that bought us Sex and the City - In Vogue: The Editors Eye focuses on the fashion editors, the women that have kept Vogue at the forefront of fashion since the magazines creation.

Personal, intimate and wholly informative the documentary celebrates the 120th anniversary of American Vogue. Discussed through photographs and memories, moments of drama, and seconds of chaos, the documentary shows visions and editorials from Grace Coddington to Polly Mellon, through to the legendary Anna Wintour herself. For me, the documentary is so amazing as you feel as if you are obtaining a true glimpse into an unknown and somewhat secret 'other' world of the fashion industry. The photographs are amazing, revolutionary and striking, yet most notably timeless. Outfits and accessories are more than enviable.

Not only are the editors featured in the documentary film, but also the actresses, models and designers that have graced the pages. Going behind the scenes at the Conde Nast publication, the film reveals how some of the magazines most recognised editorials came to life.
I was captivated from start to finish and learnt a lot in the process - the inner most thoughts of the editors really are portrayed and the viewer feels as though they are getting a magical insight into the cult world of the sartorial bible. Now available on SkyGo for British viewers, the documentary has been widely acclaimed and is definitely recommended. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
