We've been presented with the idea that high-end fashion magazines are filled with fashion soldiers, armed with their good looks, slim figures, and branded clothes - which actually proves untrue.
While a film (and book) like The Devil Wears Prada wants us to believe that everybody who works in the fashion industry looks like they stepped out of a glossy mag, a new documentary tries to set all perceptions straight.
The documentary, which chronicles the making of Vogue's September 2007 issue, shows earnest junior editors looking normal - like Anne Hathaway's Devil character before her glamorous transformation. Somehow, the documentary stresses that the fashion industry isn't full of prim-and-proper fashion pricks, but has people who wear "loose" and "rumpled" clothes.
Another thing to set straight would be the fact that nobody actually borrows clothes at Vogue. The idea that Anne Hathaway's character could get away with raiding the brand-filled closets at the fictional Runway magazine (which referred to Vogue, as writer Lauren Weisberger's book interprets spiteful memoirs of being an assistant to Anna Winour, current editor of Vogue)
True, the long, narrow corridors are filled with racks of gorgeous frocks and finery from designer brands. But apparently all they are there for is to showcase to the boss, then remains untouched.
Even Anna Wintour hasn't really changed her style much in her 21 years of being on the top of fashion. She doesn't appear to wear hot lables with funky, contemporary clothes and such. But of course, there are still some who pursue fashion for life in the industry.
But the documentary just sheds some light on the reality of it, that it's not as glitzy as it seems in movies, and that there are normal people who work there.

People are usually associating the wide-leg pants with the hippie trend. But they can be worn for multiple events, not only at a beach party. When it comes to wide-leg pants, it is crucial to find a pair that compliments your hips and waist. Read more
