It's a pre-launch celebration for "The September Issue," R.J. Cutler's documentary feature about the fashion world's high priestess Anna Wintour and her creation of Vogue magazine's most important issue of the year. But unlike the film's gala preview last week at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, this is not a red-carpet affair.
Instead, Cutler and his girlfriend, "Project Runway" producer Jane Cha, above, have gathered a group of friends two weeks prior for an intimate, relaxed evening of oven-fired pizzas and savory grilled vegetables, all in Cutler's new outdoor dining room, set in the Hollywood Hills under carnival lights and the stars.
