The hotly anticipated memoir of the British-born creative genius at Vogue: a dazzling and beguiling story of fifty years in fashion
Grace Coddington is the creative director of American Vogue magazine. British-born, she won a Vogue model competition in 1959, and pursued a modelling career in London and Paris. Landing a job as junior fashion editor at British Vogue in 1968, working under the legendary Bea Miller, she was latterly fashion director under the young Anna Wintour. Lured to New York by Calvin Klein in 1986 to be his design director, she was invited back to Vogue when Wintour took over the American operation in 1988. More recently, Grace was the surprise star of The September Issue, R. J. Cutler's documentary about Vogue magazine, and celebrated her seventieth birthday in 2011. She lives in New York City and Long Island with Didier Malige, her boyfriend of nearly thirty years, and their two cats, Bart and Pumpkin.
"If I was only allowed one book in my bookcase, or on my coffee table - this would be it" * Fashion Ache * "genius... doesn't go far enough" * Sunday Telegraph * "[A] splashy, dishy, very giftable memoir" * The New York Times * "An absolutely beautiful book. As you would expect from the creative director of American Vogue, it is both stylish and striking, Coddington is a survivor, and this memoir is testimony to that" -- Sarah Vine * The Times * "This memoir of a life in style from the 1960s until today will be equally absorbing for those who love the fashion world and those who find it impenetrably alien. Either way, as seen through Coddington's eyes, it is never less than fascinating" -- Vanessa Friedman * Financial Times *
