Goodness, Grace!

OOF. I try not to harp on about it, but when it comes to fashion styling, I believe no-one beats Grace Coddington. Case in point number 736352829? “Eternal Optimist” from Vogue US’ March 2012 issue. The casting choice alone was phenomenal: we have Caroline Trentini, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Frida Gustavsson, and Aymeline Valade – all heavy hitters with a true transformational presence.

With Craig McDean on lens, Grace has pulled together a Fifties-inspired masterpiece without being contrived. Just look at that set design. Bow down.
