Grace


I finished Grace Coddington's memoir this past week and loved it! I will be adding it to my list of favorites. For those of you who don't know who she is, Grace Coddington is the creative director of American Vogue and has been involved in the fashion industry for over 50 years. She has wild, frizzy red hair, loves (I mean LOVES) cats (even more than me), and has worked with every major fashion photographer in the world. At the end of the book there's a collection of photos from shoots she has worked on, and this is my favorite one:
'Stella Diving' Vogue 1995 Arthur Elgort

Have you read her memoir yet? And what have you read lately? I'd love some suggestions on the next good book I should read! Lately I've been reading biographies of entertainers and celebrities over the age of 70, like Dick Van Dyke, Florence Henderson, Penny Marshall, etc. It's my new thing. I love the elderly.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

I want to read this so badly! What was the emphasis on? Was it more about her personal life or did she focus a lot on the creative process for shoots...which is what I'm super interested to find out more about!

Thanks for the update!!!

I really want to read this book now! I've been seeing it all over the place and it sounds wonderful.

Nickol: It was about both. She talked a lot about how her shoots were inspired, and about the people she worked with. I hope you get to read it soon!
