Queen of the Nasties

Mention the name of Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour to a group of die-hard fashionistas and you get a wide variety of responses: outright worship, leather-boot-shaking fear and, of course, burning hatred. But who is the real woman behind Meryl Streep’s mega-bitch in The Devil Wears Prada? Find out at Tivoli Cinemas
(4050 Pennsylvania, 816-561-5222) when the KC Design Alliance, along with AIGA KC, pre­sents a showing of The September Issue, the documentary
focusing on Wintour and the production of the September 2007
issue of Vogue — an 840-page brick of scent and sentences that was the largest issue of a magazine ever published. The 7 p.m. screening is the final installment of the Reel Design Film Series, which showcases films from all fields of design. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. See aiakc.org to reserve.
