TCL Call Number: Bio Coddington G

For somebody who has had such a glamorous career and befriended so many famous designers, photographers, and models, it took the documentary "The September Issue" about the inner workings at Vogue magazine to make icon Grace Coddington famous outside her fashion circles. This engagingly written memoir takes the reader from a country British upbringing, through a London modeling career, and to British and American Vogue, where she works today as creative director, with plenty of detail and self-deprecation. She traces the evolution of the industry from the time when fashion was the main focus, and models like herself carried bags with all of their makeup, shoes, wigs and other accessories they might need on a shoot; to today's celebrity-driven focus, with actresses on covers, and many makeup artists and photographers having become celebrities themselves.
Grace is honest without being snarky, perhaps the benefit of the wisdom that her age brings.
