Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Getting the shot is everything in the fashion world, and it's something that Grace Coddington has always been pretty adept at. How adept is best judged by taking a look at her forthcoming book, an outsize tome titled Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue, which samples some of the visual treats she has concocted in her 30-plus years as a fashion editor." —New York Magazine

"If you're a fashion enthusiast, you're going to want to read (and see) this." —Interview.com

"If [Anna] Wintour is the Pope, Coddington is Michelangelo, trying to paint a fresh version of the Sistine Chapel 12 times a year." —Time Magazine

"die-hard fashion fans will rejoice when Phaidon reissues this 2002 cult coffee-table classic" —Bloomberg Pursuits

"One of Fall's 10 Best New Coffee Table Books" —Bloomberg Pursuits

"Genius is a word that gets thrown around a lot. But when it's applied to Grace Coddington, creative director at US Vogue, who has shaped the look of the magazine (and therefore your wardrobe) for three decades, it doesn't go far enough. We refer you to new book Grace as proof." —The Sunday Telegraph

"Grab it while you can" —Country & Town House

"[for the] woman who has everything." —The Daily Telegraph

"A collection of incredible images." —The Independent

"Trust us when we say that any discerning fashionista will be leaping around in their Manolos with delight if they find this under the Christmas tree." —Stylist

Meet the Author

Grace'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 who work behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion's best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary by R. J. Cutler that turned the publicity-averse Grace into a sudden celebrity.

The daughter of an hotelier in Wales, as a teenager Grace won a modeling competition and moved to London. She enjoyed a lucrative career as one of London's leading models on the 1960s scene. In 1968, following a car accident, she took a job as a junior fashion editor at British Vogue. She quickly established herself as a master stylist and creative director for fashion photography, whether she was transforming studio portraiture into beguiling tableaux, reinterpreting fashion photography classics, or by introducing a sweeping narrative epic style—story telling with clothing that is the hallmark of Grace Coddington's work.
