Grace Coddington Is Writing An Autobiography!


On Sunday, WWD confirmed what we’ve been wanting ever since we saw The September Issue and fell in love with Vogue’s flame-haired creative director: Grace Coddington is writing a memoir.

With the help of former Men’s Vogue editor in chief Jay Fielden, Coddington has begun preparing proposals for the autobiography, which will cover her life from her early modeling career to her current post at Vogue — and everything in between.

“We’re just starting,” Coddington told WWD. “And I think it’s going to be a really fun project. I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.”

Truth be told, we’d be totally fine if the book was just about Grace. But we’ll settle for all the “rich fashion history,” she mentioned. That said, if it were up to us, there would be chapters devoted to Anna (duh), as well as pieces on her favorite shoots, and some juicy, behind-the-scenes chapters on her years at Vogue. But regardless of what Coddington chooses to share with us, we have no doubt it will be poised, humorous, and of course, highly fashionable. One quick question, though: what does Ms. Wintour have to say about this?
