The fashion world’s finest commentators and visionaries are the subject of a new HBO documentary which takes to the small screen next week, 6 December. In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye features a stellar line-up of Vogue’s US fashion editors from Babs Simpson to Grace Coddington as the magazine celebrates its 120th anniversary.
Based on the book of the same name, which is illustrated with many of the powerful and influential images spawned by the imagination of Tonne Goodman, Phyllis Posnik, Jade Hobson, Carlyne Cerf, Polly Mellen and Camilla Nickerson, along with Coddington and Simpson; the film goes behind the scenes at the world’s leading fashion title.
With interviews from designers Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquière and the queen of bridal couture, Vera Wang, the documentary delves into the secrets which have made Vogue the prolific icon of our cultural landscape that it has proven from the past to the present. Style icon Sarah Jessica Parker and actress Nicole Kidman also feature, as well as the editors themselves, imparting words of wisdom and recalling their unique roles in shaping the fashion of the future.
Famed editor-in-chief of US Vogue, Anna Wintour makes a notable cameo in the documentary and said of the collaboration between her publication and HBO: “The people who are responsible for the fashion images are the fashion editors. They have always been our secret weapon, so it seemed to me that we could celebrate Vogue, and also, at the same time, celebrate these great editors.”
In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye will air on 6 December on HBO following the release of the book earlier this month.
