In "The September Issue," Anna Wintour, the high priestess of high fashion and longtime editor of Vogue magazine, never lets her colleagues see her perspire - and never reveals a spontaneous thought or emotion, or a fascinating one, either. Wintour granted director R.J. Cutler unprecedented access to her editorial processes for this documentary chronicle of her drive to break advertising records with her September 2007 issue. Unfortunately, the teapot tempests Cutler comes away with are neither gripping nor revelatory.

Two years after merging football and fashion with splashy new football uniforms, Under Armour and Maryland were at it again Thursday night. The Baltimore-based company unveiled the next iteration of its "Maryland Pride" uniforms, featuring a Maryland-flag-inspired red jersey it says will be impossible for opposing players to grab onto. The "no grab" technology was the highlight of the "Maryland Pride 2.0" uniform that debuted in a Harbor East ceremony that included Maryland band members and Ravens wide receiver and former Terps star Torrey Smith.

Under Armour's newest football commercial begins with high school players rushing to a practice field set beneath the Baltimore skyline. Some carry their gear through subway turnstiles. Others pedal furiously on bikes. A few jump into the bed of a pickup truck that halts just long enough for them to settle in for the ride. Ray Lewis, the retired Ravens linebacker, suggested that last scene based on his own memories of finding his way to practice long before he thought about a pro career that ended this year with a Super Bowl championship.

WWE '13 has now been made available to the public for a month-and-a-half. Fans and gamers alike have been able to play, digest and dissect the title, compare it to previous releases and make a wish list for future releases. Creative director Cory Ledesma is pleased with the release. “I think the main takeaway is that we're extremely pleased and happy with how the product turned out," Ledesma said. “We really put our blood sweat and tears this year into WWE '13. We really wanted to hit a home run. I think as a team we're all just very happy and relieved that it's seen so much success.” The game is driven by the new Attitude Era campaign, where nostalgic players are able to relive some of WWE's most important moments in arguably its most successful period.

When Jill Andrews redesigned her Hampden rowhouse last year, it finally sank in how narrow it really was - 12 feet wide. Traditional, bulky furniture just wouldn't do. She purchased custom pieces, such as her living room table and her son's bunk bed, from a local craftsman. A king-size bed was never a consideration for her bedroom. Instead she had to squeeze a queen-size mattress through a frameless window. "It's always been horrendous making 12 feet work," said Andrews, who designs dresses.
