The September Issue Makes Its Debut

• The September Issue debuted at the Museum of Modern Art on Wednesday night and the fashion set turned out en masse, not surprisingly. Just a few bits from the big event: Anna Wintour couldn't stop talking up Fashion's Night Out; Thakoon gushed that Anna is now "bigger than Madonna"; the film's unlikely star, Grace Coddington, emphasized that she really never wanted to take part in it; everyone ignored Tom Florio; Diddy claimed Anna as his fashion "godmother"; and Marc Jacobs, who insisted on putting on a French accent when speaking to reporters, argued that contrary to what most people think, Anna's really very "maternal and caring."
• Speaking of Jacobs, rumor has it his wedding to Lorenzo Martone will go down this weekend in Provincetown. And his big Fashion Week after-party, which was canceled last year, will return this fall.

• Rumor has it Jean Paul Gaultier is planning to step down as creative director of Hermès after his next collection debuts in October. [FWD]
• What would Rachel Zoe have done if she hadn't become a stylist? She says says she'd be a psychiatrist right now. Just about as unbelievable: She claims she's "obsessed" with Warren Buffett.
