“It lets us peek into the industry’s most exclusive party. To see what its revelers look like when their guard is down.” – New York Magazine

We follow Wintour and Andrew Bolton, the curator who conceived the groundbreaking show, as they prepare for an unforgettable evening. Featuring a cast of renowned artists (including filmmaker Wong Kar Wai and fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano) as well as a host of contemporary pop icons like Rihanna, the film dives into the debate about whether fashion should be viewed as art and gives us a backstage pass to the fashion event of the year.
