The documentary follows Vogue's stoic editor Anna Wintour as she prepares for the biggest issue release of the year and chronicles the pressures that follow. Naturally, I was interested in seeing the fashion and getting a behind-the-scenes look at how the magazine runs, but I was hoping for some tech sightings as well.
Although there wasn't much gadget eye candy in the film, we first see Anna onscreen rocking two phones — a BlackBerry and a Motorola RAZR — on her way into the office. One for work and one for play, I presume. At first I was surprised to see Anna wielding that particular flip phone (I guess I was expecting her to tote a high-fashion Dior or Prada phone), but then I remembered this was filmed in 2007 — RAZRs were all the rage back then.
There were a few other gadget sightings in the film. Find out what they are when you read more.
In The September Issue, we see Anna using both a black and white MacBook in her office, as well as a MacBook Pro when she presents the final cut of the issue to the executives. Tech took a backseat in this film, but I can't complain — the fashion more than made up for its absence.
