The Weekend Reading List


If you’re anything like us you will have watched The September Issue at least a dozen times since its 2009 release. And thankfully we finally have a follow-up: The First Monday in May. This documentary focuses entirely on the planning of the 2015 Met Gala, and shadows Anna Wintour and the Vogue team as they finalise guest lists, complain about Rihanna’s fee and question whether the decor will “look like a Chinese restaurant”. Find the trailer below, along with more of the week’s top links…
