"If Wintour is the Pope...Coddington is Michelangelo, trying to paint a fresh version of the Sistine Chapel 12 times a year." (Time)

あらすじ・解説

Audie Award Finalist, Narration by the Author or Authors, 2014

Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Grace Coddington’s extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. Known through much of her career only to those behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion’s best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary that turned publicity-averse Grace into a sudden, reluctant celebrity. Grace’s palpable engagement with her work brought a rare insight into the passion that produces many of the magazine’s most memorable shoots. 

With the witty, forthright voice that has endeared her to her colleagues and peers for more than 40 years, Grace now creatively directs the listener through the storied narrative of her life so far. Evoking the time when models had to tote their own bags and props to shoots, Grace describes her early career as a model, working with such world-class photographers as David Bailey and Norman Parkinson, before she stepped behind the camera to become a fashion editor at British Vogue in the late 1960s. Here she began creating the fantasy "travelogues" that would become her trademark. In 1988 she joined American Vogue, where her breathtakingly romantic and imaginative fashion features, a sampling of which appear in this book, have become instant classics. 

Delightfully underscored by Grace’s pen-and-ink illustrations, Grace will introduce listeners to the colorful designers, hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, models, and celebrities with whom Grace has created her signature images. Grace reveals her private world with equal candor - the car accident that almost derailed her modeling career, her two marriages, the untimely death of her sister, Rosemary, her friendship with Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis, and her 30-year romance with Didier Malige. Finally, Grace describes her abiding relationship with Anna Wintour, and the evolving mastery by which she has come to define the height of fashion. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Grace a Memoir

If you enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada you will like Grace. Her road to the fashion industry and Anna Wintour is interesting and personal. She is funny, insightful and tells her story with both humor and honesty.

Mildly Interesting

I was looking forward to this read about Grace Coddingham. It was a disappointment as the stories were superficial and lack interest. Shame though as I think Grace has been a very central figure to fashion.

Intriguing and entertaining!

You know it's a great story when eight hours or so passes by and what feels like 15 minutes! Many things to Grace for sharing her story with all of us.

Fascinating Fashion Industry Book

I really enjoyed this book; I listened to it during almost every spare moment for a couple days. After completing the book I went on a rampage to find more like it. Alas, this is the only one. This book provided a first hand perspective of the fashion industry. I am sure Grace has more stories to tell. It would be wonderful if she wrote another book. After enough time has passed I am sure I will listen to this book again.

I adore fashion magazines

And Grace Coddington generously tells about her life and her work at British Vogue and American Vogue. I enjoyed hearing the author read her own work.

If you love fashion magazines you’ll love this book.

A beautiful story about one of fashion’s most influential yet unsung heroines who narrates the book with an honest and emotional tone.
