In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye

NETWORK SITE 
HBO – Premieres December 6 at 9PM

IN VOGUE: THE EDITOR’S EYE, coinciding with the 120th anniversary of Vogue, takes a look at some of the world’s most influential fashion images as conceived by the magazine’s iconic fashion editors.

“The people who are responsible for the fashion images are the fashion editors,” says Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue. “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.”

“The exquisite and detailed inspiration that goes into a fashion editor’s staging of a photograph was a surprise to us,” comments Sheila Nevins, president, HBO Documentary Films.  “The images found in the pages of Vogue exist as true works of art and the editors themselves are gifted, yet often unassuming, artists.”

Drawing on Vogue’s exceptional archives, the film features behind-the-scenes interviews with editors who have contributed to the magazine’s legacy, including current editor-in-chief Anna Wintour; fashion editors such as Grace Coddington, Tonne Goodman, Polly Allen Mellen, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, Camilla Nickerson, Phyllis Posnick and Babs Simpson; celebrated Vogue subjects Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker; industry icons such as Hamish Bowles; and fashion designers Alber Elbaz, Nicolas Ghesquière, Marc Jacobs and Vera Wang (herself a former Vogue fashion editor), all of whom share their experiences collaborating with top photographers and image-makers of the day.

In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye is produced and directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (HBO’s “The Strange History of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the Emmy®-nominated “Wishful Drinking“).

“Vogue: The Editor’s Eye,” a book on the same subject, was published by Abrams in October.

HBO Documentary Films in association with Vogue presents a World of Wonder Production; produced and directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato; edited by Langdon F. Page and Francisca Kachler; original music by David Benjamin Steinberg; director of photography, Thomas Curran; associate producer, Jane Fitzgerald; producer, Mona Card.
