Example text

Kate’s wedding dress emerges as the agent of redemption for Galliano. 54 In the accompanying feature, by Hamish Bowles, we learn: In the flurry of pre-wedding madness and nerves, the one thing that is keeping Kate sane is the dress. With her characteristic loyalty, she has asked her beleaguered friend John Galliano to work on this. ‘‘When I put the dress on, I’m really happy,’’ says Kate. ’’55 That single word – ‘‘beleaguered’’ – is the only concession to the ‘‘real life’’ story throughout this issue of Vogue.

For corporate Vogue, a lot rides on it: it is a statement of – and an investment in – their confidence in the magazine’s editorial direction. J. 35 The film followed the magazine’s production process for the September 2007 issue. At 832 pages, that was the biggest fashion magazine ever published to that date. The job of producing each issue falls to the Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, who is much better known than her corporate bosses. 37 The movie, with Meryl Streep as the Wintour-like ‘‘Miranda Priestly,’’ ruthless editor of fictional Runway magazine, and Anne Hathaway as the ing´enue with a lot to learn, was a surprise box-office hit.

Interestingly, those who seem to have adopted this G¨otterd¨ammerung scenario most enthusiastically are authors and publishers. Here’s a typical sample, this one from author Ewan Morrison,84 speaking at the Edinburgh Book Festival: Will books, as we know them, come to an end? Yes, absolutely, within 25 years the digital revolution will bring about the end of paper books. But more importantly, ebooks and e-publishing will mean the end of ‘‘the writer’’ as a profession . . The digital revolution will not emancipate writers or open up a new era of creativity, it will mean that writers offer up their work for next to nothing or for free.
