In Vogue: The Editor's Eye / Documentary

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 magazines iconic fashion editors.

"The people who are responsible for he fashion images are the fashion editors, "says Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue. "They have 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 photography 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 magazines legacy, including current editor-in-chief Anna Wintour; fashion editors such as Grace Coddington, Tonne Goddman, Polly Allen Mellen, Camilla Nickerson, Phyllis Posnick and Babs Simpson; celebrated Vogue subjects Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker; industry icons such as Hamish Bowls; and fashion designers Alber Elbaz, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Marc Jacobs, and Vera Wang(herself in a former Vogue fashion editor), all of whom share their experience collaborating with top photographers and image-makers of the day. 

In Vogue: The Editors Eye is produced and directed by Fanton Bailey and Randy Barbato(HBO's "The Strange History of Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and the Emmy-nominated "Whishful Drinking"
