>> The way that director RJ Cutler cut his new trailer for The September Issue, which covers the making of Vogue's September 2007 issue — its biggest ever — makes it like a real-life Devil Wears Prada. In this two and a half minute montage alone, Anna Wintour is revered and feared enough to carry us until movie's country-wide Sept. 11 release date. No sooner than Thakoon Panichgul proclaims "Anna is like Madonna," the editor herself is telling a disappointed-looking Oscar de la Renta at a runthrough, "I personally would not put this one in the show, the others things you've shown us are more exciting." She scolds Mario Testino about his September 2007 cover mockups with Sienna Miller: "This type seems so large and pretentious, it looks like it's for blind people." And even Karl Lagerfeld looks nervous as Anna inspects a new Chanel piece, eventually proclaiming, "It's gorgeous."
Among her own staff, Anna is just as blunt — of one mockup: "She looks pregnant." Grace Coddington excitedly holds up a neon pink and black Fall 2007 Comme des Garcons jacket from a rack for Anna: "Look!" Not missing half a beat, Anna smiles: "No." And in a meeting with stylist Edward Enninful, she looks at his work for the magazine and declares: "Where's the glamour? It's Vogue, okay? Please, let's lift it." No wonder the movie is inspiring bootleg viewing parties among editors — and Anna to supposedly have her underlings monitor the movie's Facebook page for her.
>> Adriana Lima Wants a Big Family—Adriana Lima recently made a return to high fashion in Vogue Paris and Love editorials, walking the Fall 2009 Givenchy runway and appearing in the subsequent campaign, but the model, who is expecting her first child in December, may have other things on her mind these days. "I never saw myself being married and having a child." When she met husband Marko Jaric, however, "everything changed. I knew he was the one and I could see myself married with him and with a big family." [People]
