Grace Coddington

American Vogue magazine is one of the, if not the  most influential and powerful fashion publications in the world, but one thing is for sure it would not be anything if not for Grace Coddington. She is the Creative Director for Vogue magazine and, (in my mind) a true legend and icon in the realm of fashion publications. She has worked in the industry for over 40 years, starting off as a model in London, and after a horrific car accident, began to work as an assistant for Vogue U.K. She was recently featured in one of the best documentaries about Vogue, “The September Issue” which highlighted her status and power at the magazine and her feuding but respectful rivalry with Anna Wintour. She has been named the one of the best stylist in the world, and judging by her phenomenal work in the movie, that fact was solidified. The one characteristic about Grace that I find to be the most enlightening and refreshing, is that she is humble. She allows her work to speak for itself, she doesnt click around town in overpriced Louboutins, or carry a Birkin..she simply an artist, a genius and a true inspiration to me and countless others who dream of working in this weird, glamorous and addictive industry known as…Fashion.
