OPENS: NOW PLAYING

Filmed in 2007 before the economy turned, this delicious doc follows imperious Vogue editor Anna Wintour over eight months as she puts together the magazine's biggest ever issue. But instead of taking potshots at fashion’s frivolity, the film offers a nuanced look at the detail, drive and artistic demands that go into shaping the clothing bible (Wintour micromanages every element of Sienna Miller’s cover shoot, even criticizing her teeth). The flick's standout star? Vogue's creative director Grace Coddington, a free-spirited contrast to her all-business boss. And watch for Wintour's daughter, Bee, 22, who mocks her powerful mother's profession.
