The September Issue! (or The Origins of Anna's Eternal Pout)

Girls, will you tune in to see the world's unhappiest looking francophile curating the world's best fashion and torturing well-meaning sophomoric interns? I was at work so I missed the live premier coverage tonight via facebook but Anna's pout has me pondering: Does fashion in New York make people miserable? Now seriously, LA Fashion Week is full of talented dedicated artists: makeup, set design, fashion, hair, pickup and so forth - all artists, happy to be there and happy you are there. No matter who you are. New York fashion week is more: who do you know? why are you here? You won't make it to next season. Yawn.

I think this pervasive snobbery is where Anna's pout comes from. Though she may not be this way herself, she is (perhaps by happenstance) at the epicenter of rudeness. Can't be a fun place. Even if you have access to the last orangina at Conde Nast and everything Thakoon creates.
Whether you're a fan of Anna's pout or not, be sure to check out the FB premiere coverage with guests from the film like director R.J. Cutler, legendary Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Andre Leon Talley, Sienna Miller, and Thakoon Panichgul, and with notables like Renee Zellweger, Sean Combs, Carey Mulligan also making appearances.
