tuesday’s girl: grace coddington.

one of my personal heroes is grace coddington. did you ever see the september issue? if not, put it right up there on your netflix cue. the movie, a documentary about vogue’s fall issue and anna wintour is stolen away by the brilliance that is vogue creative director grace coddington. but did you know grace was once a super model in her own right? yep, not just incredible intelligence and wit, oodles of style too.

  3. loved that movie. brains +beauty.
    julianne moore reminds me of grace.

    though, every time i see a photo of grace now,
    i just want to slather on some deepconditioner on her hair.

    Yes to Julianne Moore! I think she would totally play Grace in a film. Grace is so inspirational. I love listening to her talk! I’m glad The September Issue did several interviews with her.

    I absolutely adore Grace too. She’s stylish, funny, extremely talented and there’s nothing arrogant about her. They say she still ties the models’ shoelaces herself when styling, I love that about her!

    I’m a big fan, too. And of those gorgeous cats of hers as well!

  9. The September Issue is/was fantastic – I wanted it to be three hours longer!

    Grace C is stunning.

    Love the new website look by the way. Very fresh!!

  10. I became a fan of Grace after watching the September Issue. Her creativity is inspirational. Thanks for sharing these photos of Grace! She’s so lovely.

  11. Viola says:

    Yes, I like her too! I don’t know much about fashion, but a friend made me watch The september issue, and I loved how normal and creative Grace was. Plus, she wrote that adorable book “Catwalk cats”! Definitely a fan :)

    I love Grace! She completely stole the show in The September Issue – can’t wait for for someone to publish her memoirs.

  13. Leone says:

    Love that movie. I so enjoyed watching Grace work and I also liked that she seemed extremely down to earth. It was so interesting to see her appreciation for all things beautiful, whether in the drape of a fabric, the setting of a shoot, or the beauty of a garden.

  14. homestilo says:

    I didn’t know who she was until watching the September Issue. After that, I came away with so much respect her (and thinking “…SHE should be top editor at Vogue”)

  15. Love love LOVE Grace! I had no idea the woman with the amazingly frizzy red hair I often see in fashion magazine snippets was the Creative Director at Vogue. I was so happy when The September Issue took a turn to focus more on her life and career; she seems like such a brilliant, forward thinking woman who actually has a heart…and a heart, to me, is not something you initially think of when you think of ‘fashion’!

  16. I loved that movie and LOVE Grace. I did know she was a model back in the day, but I haven’t seen most of these images. She was SO lovely!

  17. Nashvilledeb says:

    Grace is so beautiful. On the Vogue cover, did you notice how much she and Christina Hendricks from “Mad Men” favor? Uncanny!

  18. Wow, I didn’t know…thanks for this…I love watching September Issue, and had no idea Grace was a model once!

  19. BC says:

    Grace was a breath of fresh air in the September issue. Thanks for posting this tribute!

  20. Jenny says:

    loved the september issue. And LOVE grace.

    love this post!

  21. Melanie says:

    I adore Grace Coddington! It’s so lovely to see her honored here.

  22. carmencatalina says:

    I find Grace Coddington absolutely fascinating – she is obviously such a sharp, creative person, but when you read interviews with her (or watch The September Issue), you are so struck by her sensitivity and, well, grace. What is the female equivalent of a gentleman? Lady doesn’t quite work – I would say she is a gentlewoman, through and through.

  23. Kacie says:

    I adore Grace! Thanks so much for this! May I use a screenshot of this post to add to a Link Love type of blog post? Love it!

    I absolutely LOVE Grace! I’ve never seen some of these pics. Wow!

  25. Kailey says:

    Absolutely stunning post! I have admired pictures from her modeling career for a while now – and this post has definitely made we want to watch The September Issue!

  26. becky says:

    Grace totally stole that show, er, documentary! I loved it so much that the second it was over I hit “menu” and watched it again in the same sitting. And she sure does resemble Juilanne Moore in some of those photographs. Her eye was so incredible, not to mention her vast knowledge of photography and photographers. My heart broke for her whenever Anna axed a photo from the spread. It made me wish that Vogue would post the pictures that wound up on the floor somewhere, or have a “Grace’s cut” spread online for each spread she’s done in the glossy.

  27. Ashleigh says:

    Look at her! Just gorge…
    I think I remember mention of that in the movie but never followed up with any research. I agree she stole it from Anna, what a wonderful spirit!

  28. Robyn says:

    we love grace —she is a genius! and the september issue is a classic. thanks for the great post!
