The September Issue London Screening

Posted by Catherine Kallon Comments

Yesterday I was invited by InStyle UK to attend the advance screening of “The September Issue” sponsored by LoveFilm and Ovarian Cancer Action.

Unfortunately Anna Wintour didn’t arrive at the screening, but the glamorous girls from UK pop group Sugarbabes did.

The trio looked sexy in their co-ordinated LBD’s. They each had gold accents on either their shoes or handbags.

Amelle Berrabah wore a La Petite Salope black velvet one-shouldered belted dress, which she had shortened to show off her legs.  Her look was paired with Topshop open toe gold studded ankle boots and a Chanel purse.

Heidi Range introduced me to a designer I hadn’t heard of before Jasper Garvida. Her LBD was from his Fall 2009 collection.

The plunging dress was covered in platinum paillettes which were more beautiful in real life, the pictures aren’t doing the dress enough justice.

Her look was also paired with a Chanel bag and Moschino heels with a gold wedge.

Keisha Buchanan dress was instantly recognizable. “Alexander Wang” I said, to which she smiled and nodded.

Her Alexander Wang slim grommet dress will see her on a Who Wore It Better? poll because both Rihanna and Khloe Kardashian have worn this dress before her.

Her look was paired with black heels and a stunning black bag covered in gold links.

Onto the movie.

It was amazing. A real education into the workings of a magazine, Anna Wintour and her staff.

Anna is not as scary as I assumed she would be, but scary enough to keep her staff and designers on their toes.

I don’t want to talk in too much detail as I don’t want to give too much away, but I think a star is born in Wales-born Creative Director Grace Coddington. She had me in stitches through-out the documentary.

My favourite line was when Grace say to a colleague, “Will Anna like this one?”, referring to a black leather coat.   Her colleague says, “It’s black”.

“That’s true,” Grace says. “You’d get fired for that.”

I will remind you guys of that the next time you tell me off for moaning too much about black dresses. *winks*

“The September Issue” opens in theaters September 11.
