Hamish Bowles explained to NY Magazine's The Cut:
“There’s a documentary about the editors who have created some of the more iconic images that have been associated with Vogue....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.”
Here is the trailer:

Every now and again, I come across an exquisitely styled film, and I am reminded of how important costume is to a story and its characters.
"Cracks" is an independent film starring one of my favourite actresses Eva Green, alongside Juno Temple, Imogen Poots and Maria Valverde. It is set in a British boarding school during the 1930s and features impeccable, vintage looks. The women/girls are unassuming and exude femininity - their clothing is simple and classic, in a way that is rarely seen in young women today.
