The Wonderful Grace

7 November 2012

You say the name Grace Coddington and you can bet your bottom dollar everyone who works within fashion would have heard of her and a few from outside the industry gates as well. Grace is the enormous talent behind US Vogue and Anna Wintour's right hand lady. Not only is she the worlds most famous editorial stylist she has now put her hobby of fashion illustration into print, here is a sneaky peak at a few!

Grace, a former model has turned US Vogue's editorial styling around and has been dubbed one of the worlds best. My favourite shoot of hers was themed around Alice In Wonderland, not only do I adore the classic story but Grace styled this so creatively, that she has captured the essence of the book beautifully. In the shoot Natalia Vodianova is shot in a sequence of stories with the worlds tops fashion designers, including Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford and Jean Paul Gaultier.

With that level of creativity it's no surprising she is also a fashion illustrator and in her latest book of memoirs Grace, she has included these special sketches of her life in fashion. I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at them prior to the launch of the book. My fav is the 'English Girls' one!!!
