Anna Wintour has given filmmaker R.J. Cutler an extraordinary gift: Not only did she allow his cameras into the Vogue offices and her family, the editor also revealed her (remaining) human side.
There is a moment in the film when Wintour contemplates the end of her career, the subject of more than one recent — and oft-denied — rumor. Cutler was cagey: “I have to let the film speak for itself on that.”
Wintour has been notoriously frosty about rumors Si Newhouse might replace her at Vogue. If the iron-fisted fashion despot deigns to show vulnerability, it's a safe bet the move is calculated. Why should Elle and Marie Claire be the only titles to capitalize on human drama?
