Coinciding with the 120th anniversary of Vogue Magazine, documentary "In Vogue: The Editor's Eye" debuts on HBO on December 6. The film looks at some of the world's most influential fashion images as conceived by the mag's editors.

"In Vogue" features behind-the-scenes interviews with current and iconic editor-and-chief, the impeccably bobbed Anna Wintour, and fashion editors Grace Coddington, Tonne Goodman, Polly Allen Mellen, Camilla Nickerson, Phyllis Posnick and Babs Simpson. Designers Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang (also a former editor at the magazine), Vogue regulars Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker and international editor-at-large Hamish Bowles are also interviewed.

Meanwhile, Coddington has published a memoir, which the NY Times calls "splashy, dishy and very giftable." The book follows her glam life in swinging '60s London as a fashion model to her prestigious role as Vogue's creative director.

Coddington's bohemian vibe and endlessly inventive editorial sense opposite Wintour's intimidating, immaculately controlled leadership smarts was humorously portrayed in R.J. Cutler's "The Septemeber Issue" (2009). Trailer below.
