Shelves: jlb-book-club , biographies-memoirs , fashion Book club is nearing and I havent been able to get this book from the library doh! An unusual practice for me. When did books start costing that much?! I was prepared to dislike the book after buying it, but charged ahead because I had to get it read this week. Despite myself, I was charmed with Graces recounting of her childhood.

However, around page 80, Grace gets more involved in fashion and time, truth and morals become extremely relative. By page , I had disconnected from the story and was just reading to finish the book. The book gives a first hand account of basically everyone in the fashion industry, and I could see how that would be interesting to many people. I kid you not.

Fast read. Visually attractive. Read in one long day at home. The movie prompted her to write her memoirs despite initially eschewing the new-found publicity.

I think they are clever and endearing. I have never had the opportunity or inclination to become part of the fashion industry but I find it intriquing. It is its own microcosm. I was interested she thought Christy Turlington is the most beautiful model she has worked with. Grace is a remarkably talented woman, growing up on a small island in North Wales to becoming creative director at American Vogue working alongside Anna Wintour and still working in that demanding role at 71 years of age.

Grace Coddington

Early life[ edit ] Coddington was born on the island of Anglesey , Wales , to hotelier parents. Her interest in fashion began in her teens, when she would anxiously await the arrival of a current issue of Vogue magazine, which was at least three months outdated because she needed to order it on "rush-copy. She says that she loves "the whole sort of chic thing " Italianate culture " [about Vogue] that was so entirely out of context compared to the lifestyle that [she] led. She ended up winning the Young Model section.
