Description: Grace : Hardback : Random House USA Inc : 9780812993356 : 0812993357 : 20 Nov 2012 : Grace Coddington's celebration of fashion has danced along its cutting edge for over 30 years. Abandoning a highly lucrative career as a leading model on the 60s London scene, alongside such swinging contemporaries as Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy, Coddington signed on in 1968 as a junior fashion editor at British ' Vogue.' She quickly established herself on the other side of the camera, coordinating photo shoots with David Bailey, Cecil Beaton, Helmut Newton, Sarah Moon, and the eccentric Guy Bourdin. A close working relationship with royal photographer Norman Parkinson produced a series of startlingly vibrant location shoots that have come to be considered classics. At British ' Vogue,' Coddington also introduced the sweeping narrative epic, a familiar feature of her work nowadays at American ' Vogue,' where she has been creative director for the past 14 years. 'GRACE: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue' is not only a collection of Coddington's greatest work, it is a visual reminiscence of her life in fashion.

Review: Grace Coddington is no literary genius, nor she pretends to be. Her autobiography is written in a simple and mostly linear style, which among a lot of baroque writing is quite refreshing. What we get here is the basic tale of a life less than ordinary. However, despite her many remarkable experiences and glamorous environment, Coddington succeeds at the difficult task of sounding down to heart, or at least a lot less of a snob than one would expect. Still, the name-dropping is endless and her admission of never having read a book in her life make her sound slightly conceited (at best). Moreover, her self-confessed dislike for literature casts a very mercenary shadow over this project. She succeeds at giving enough details about her life, but not so much, as to make you think she is completely self-absorbed. She seems aware of the fact that, having worked with lots of famous people, such as Helmut Newton and David Bailey, the reader wants to know something about them, too. Those expecting juicy gossip about models or Anna Wintour will be disappointed, as Grace is very discreet, although it is clear that she is no doormat and does not like some of her connections. Many photos and cute drawings illustrate the book and leave the reader wanting for more. On a side note, the fact that Grace likes cats and had some grief with snooty French models, made her win an extra point. Otherwise, I would have given the book 2 stars. I would recommend only if you watched The September Issue and are interested in fashion and photography. I follow fashion photography and I find Grace's spreads the most remarkable ever, even if the clothes cannot be worn in real life. But they work wonders as images of a fantasy place I would like to inhabit.
