Have you seen The September Issue, the behind-the-scenes sort-of documentary about the inner workings of Vogue? If not, you need to do so immediately, as it is RIVETING. Not simply because you get to see plenty of lasers of doom shooting from Anna Wintour’s eyes and more Andre Leon Talley balaclavas than you can count, but also because it is seriously fascinating in its own right. It’s like the nonfiction companion piece to The Devil Wears Prada. There’s even a vaguely similar scene to the one where Meryl cries to he Hathaway about her crumbling marriage, where we see some tiny hairline cracks of vulnerability in A-Dubs’s frozen-solid demeanor.
Anyway, I digress. A new deleted scene has just been released, and it is funny. And of course, it ostensibly serves to further underline the thesis that A-Dubs is an evil, soul-crushing fashion world Maleficent. But I’m not so sure I buy that narrative. I think she might actually be kind of nice. Not only because of the evidence in this clip, but also because OHMYGOD I FUCKING HAD A CONVERSATION WITH HER IN STARBUCKS TWO WEEKS AGO OHMYGOD!!!!!111!!!!
