Grace Coddington’s memoir is the book every Vogue reader has wanted. I hunger for a glimpse behind the glossy pages lapping up “The Devil Wears Prada” “The September Issue” “Bill Cunningham’s New York” and “Through the Editor’s Eyes” all I have ever wanted to know was in this book! The mysterious red head you see in the front row at every show... this is her... this is it... in her own words. Away from a camera. It is the memoir any fashion savvy woman is interested in. I adored it... every word!!
Starting from childhood, through her modeling career and concluding with her work at American Vogue - the memoir tells you everything you could want to know about Grace... and Anna Wintour herself who has a chapter all to herself.
The book is so conversational that you just felt like you got to know the read Grace, as if she were across the table chatting to you. It is the perfect biography. It keeps you interested. It tells you what you want to know eliminating all the stuff you don’t want to know. AND what an AMAZING story Grace has to tell. A brilliant woman in job and in life.
A great book! THANK YOU GRACE FOR SHOWING US THE WORLD WE ALL WISH TO LIVE IN!
