The unlikely and arguably more interesting character to emerge from 2009 documentary The September Issue was Grace Coddington, and what a generous breath of fresh air did she bring.
For many who were fans of her beautiful work but unfamiliar with her persona, Grace Coddington was swiftly propelled into the public eye as Vogue’s second leading lady providing a creatively human spirit and realism to an industry so distant for many.
Jump forward to 2012 and we are treated with her memoirs in Grace: A Memoir a collection of memories, photographs and illustrations of her life as one of fashions most influential players.
Fortunately I picked this book up at the airport on my way to Sydney and upon the realisation that I had likely dropped (lost) my iPhone in the airport lounge, this book consumed me utterly providing a much needed distraction pre and post Pitch Perfect viewing (which was AWESOME if you were curious… soooo laugh out loud funny!).
Given I am in city-holiday-mode I haven’t had a chance to progress further with the book, but from what I have seen so far it reads easily and with a liberal dose of humour.
