9780449808061: Grace: A Memoir

Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Grace Coddington’s extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. Known through much of her career only to those behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion’s best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary that turned publicity-averse Grace into a sudden, reluctant celebrity. Grace’s palpable engagement with her work brought a rare insight into the passion that produces many of the magazine’s most memorable shoots.
 
With the witty, forthright voice that has endeared her to her colleagues and peers for more than forty years, Grace now creatively directs the listener through the storied narrative of her life so far. Evoking the time when models had to tote their own bags and props to shoots, Grace describes her early career as a model, working with such world-class photographers as David Bailey and Norman Parkinson, before she stepped behind the camera to become a fashion editor at British Vogue in the late 1960s. Here she began creating the fantasy “travelogues” that would become her trademark. In 1988 she joined American Vogue, where her breathtakingly romantic and imaginative fashion features, a sampling of which appear in this book, have become instant classics.
 
Grace will introduce listeners to the colorful designers, hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, models, and celebrities with whom Grace has created her signature images. Grace reveals her private world with equal candor—the car accident that almost derailed her modeling career, her two marriages, the untimely death of her sister, Rosemary, her friendship with Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis, and her thirty-year romance with Didier Malige. Finally, Grace describes her abiding relationship with Anna Wintour, and the evolving mastery by which she has come to define the height of fashion.
 
Includes a bonus PDF of photos from the book.

Review:

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
 
“[A] splashy, dishy, very giftable memoir.... Charmingly forthright.... Coddington’s work as an editor does not outglam her youthful adventure stories. But it’s at the heart of this book, and she presents it with both passion and whimsy.”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Coddington...has a winning voice and admirable common sense.... Who wouldn’t want to spend a few hours in her company anyway?”
The New York Observer
 
“If you have a stylista (or stylisto) on your list, buy this book.”
Toronto Star
 
“Grace is candid, but not salacious—if no gloves come off, it’s because Coddington never wore any in the first place. [Grace unfolds] in a very conversational, matter-of-fact manner.... Coddington isn’t shy about speaking her mind on industry issues.... But she also reveals some of the tenderness and friendship behind all the air-kissing.”
—Nathalie Atkinson, National Post
 
“Worth a read for the name-dropping alone.”
Los Angeles Times
