Gift Idea for a Stylish Bookworm: The Grace Coddington Memoir
Like many people, I first fell in love with Vogue's Creative Director, Grace Coddington, while watching The September Issue back in 2009. She gracefully and sometimes bitterly worked to execute her creative vision for the magazine while simultaneously trying to keep the peace with "the High Priestess of Fashion" aka Vogue Editor Anna Wintour. The movie was insightful and gave viewers a rare behind the scenes glimpse at what it really takes to produce the coveted 'September Issue' at Vogue. Now fashion fans can get another dose of good old Grace in her recently published memoir. In the book, Coddington who is now 71, talks about her start as a model in London and takes readers on a journey of the up's and down's of her life and career and gives insight on what it's really like to choreograph high fashion photoshoots for Vogue.The book is available on Amazon.com for under $20 and makes a great gift for stylish bookworms.
