Anna Wintour's (Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue 1988-) then-assistant Lauren Weisberger wrote a roman à clef entitled The Devil Wears Prada, which became a Academy-Award nominated film.
In 2007, RJ Cutler directed a documentary showing Anna Wintour's work for the September issue of the US Vogue. Titled "The September Issue", it followed the editor-in-chief and her staff around New York and Paris, documenting their shoots and day-to-day office life. Although the documentary originally focused on Wintour, the unexpected star of it was Grace Coddington, a former model that got into the magazine business after suffering a car crash in her young years and is nowadays the magazine's creative director.
