Grace Coddington Memoir

Grace Coddington MemoirGrace Coddington, creative director of Vogue, is working on a memoir. Coddington and former Men’s Vogue editor in chief Jay Fielden have been confirmed as the pair to write the autobiography by Coddington herself. “We’re just starting, and I think it’s going to be a really fun project…I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.”

The book will cover Coddington’s early life in Wales (woohoo – Welsh women!), her modeling days in Sixties London, the car accident that changed her career path and her ascendancy through fashion’s ranks as a stylist and editor at British Vogue and, later, its American counterpart.

For your time, here is a reminder of her genius via the retro Alice in Wonderland shoot for Vogue:
