Omg, the end credits for In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye… So brilliant! So fabulous! YOU. ARE. GOING. DIE. The nuttiest soundbytes from Grace, Babs, et al remixed into a funky dance track by Lucian Piane and the Pop Tarts, I think it’s BEST SONG OF 2012! MAYBE THE BEST SONG OF THE DECADE! I see fashionistas and scene queens dancing to this at all the best parties. I see Extravaganzas and Muglers battling in ballrooms to this song. And I GUARANTEE you will be singing “It’s all about the butterfly, the butterfly, the butterfly” for YEARS to come. Loveit loveit loveit. You don’t HAVE to have seen the documentary to enjoy it, but if you HAVEN’T SEEN IT, well WHY NOT? It’s on HBO again this afternoon, and then Wednesday night. Definitely worth DVRing.
In this clip from TONIGHT’S big world premiere of In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye (9 PM! HBO!), Hamish Bowles, Grace Coddington, Tonne Goodman, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, and other Vogue personalities try to break down WHAT EXACTLY IT IS that they do. (The answer basically boils down to “it’s complicated.”) (via Vogue)

The other day, Fashionista threw the fashion world into a tizzy when they speculated about a new Anna Wintour/Vogue documentary in the works for HBO. “A spokesperson from Conde Nast reached out to tell us that while there is an HBO documentary in the works, Anna Wintour won’t be the focus,” they said. “So what will be then? Is another Vogue doc in the works? Or is another Vogue staffer the focus – Grace Coddington perhaps?”
And we just whistled innocently and said nothing.
Today The Cut spoke to Hamish Bowles who revealed more about what we’ve been dying to tell you: That World of Wonder is indeed making the documentary chronicling 100 years of Vogue. “[It's] about the editors who have created some of the more iconic images that have been associated with Vogue,” he said. “There’s a book called The Editor’s Eye, and the HBO documentary is kind of timed to coincide with the publication of that book. But it’s exploring the unsung heroines and heroes of Vogue — the great editors from Babs Simpson, who was working with Irving Penn in the forties and fifties to Polly Mellen, of course, who worked with Avedon, and so many others, right up to Grace Coddington and Tonne [Goodman] and Phyllis Posnick and Camilla Nickerson. It’s great, because perhaps until The September Issue people weren’t aware how incredibly important the sittings editors were. They’re individual, strong, creative eyes, so it’s interesting to see.”
Bowles went on to say that Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato had been around the Vogue offices a lot lately. “They’ve been a presence, yes. They’re wonderful,” he said, before adding: “We’ll see if I’m still saying that come the fall.”
