9 documentaries to watch
Lately I have been watching so many documentaries. I find that they have become my go to when I planning on watching tv alone. I bet most of my family and friends have no idea about my documentary obsession. Below are 9 of my favorites that you really must watch.

Mademoiselle C // A documentary for fashionistas that follows Carine Roitield, a former editor of Vogue Paris, as she launches her own magazine CR Fashion Book. This documentary offers a fascinating view of Carine who has built a reputation as one of the fashion world's most significant influencers.

Maidentrip // This documentary chronicles the journey of a 14 year old who sets out on a 2-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to be the youngest person ever to sail around the world.

Girl Rising // This tells the story of 9 girls in 9 different countries around the world and show the power of education to change the world. The girls featured in this documentary are unforgettable.

20 Feet From Stardom // Behind every superstar singer is a group of backup singers who help to make songs a hit while receiving little recognition. This documentary features incredibly talented backup singers and explores how they never made it to stardom themselves.

Fame High // Follows students at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. This school is competitive and full of high pressure. I loved seeing how passionate these high schoolers are about their art.

First Position // This documentaries follows 6 young dancers from around the world as they prepare for one ofthe most prestigious ballet competitions in the world. It is amazing how dedicated and driven the kids are.

Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel // This documentary does an amazing job of telling the story of Diana Vreeland's life and career. Her impact on the fashion world is legendary.

The September Issue // I am obsessed with Anna Wintour. This documentary chronicles her preparations for the 2007 fall fashion issue. Ms. Wintour is one savvy business woman.

Ballerina // Okay so I so want to be a graceful and talented ballerina and maybe that is why I was drawn to watching this documentary. It follow 5 Russian ballerinas with amazing artistry and technique. You see behind the scenes, rehearsals, classes, and what life is like to be a Russian ballerina.
