Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Coddington, creative director of the American Vogue magazine, has much to impart (which she has done before in Grace: 30 Years of Fashion at Vogue, 2002, and The Catwalk Cats, 2008). Fashionistas, rejoice, because not only does she chronicle the life and times of a former model turned editor; she also discusses those whose names appear in any celebrity column—photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Bruce Weber, models like Naomi Campbell, and the Calvin Klein and French couture maîtres. What saves this from becoming a download of the activities of the rich and famous is, first, her amazing candor. We learn, for instance, that marriages don’t agree with her, that her sister Rosemary died of a combination OD–hospital malfeasance issue, and that editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is not as portrayed in The Devil Wears Prada. And, second, her charming and lively pen-and-ink illustrations grace every chapter—and almost every page. Just what you would ask for from a revered behind-the-scenes magazine editor is what you get here. --Barbara Jacobs

Review

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
 
“[A] splashy, dishy, very giftable memoir…. Charmingly forthright…. Coddington’s work as an editor does not outglam her youthful adventure stories. But it’s at the heart of this book, and she presents it with both passion and whimsy.”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Coddington…has a winning voice and admirable common sense…. Who wouldn’t want to spend a few hours in her company anyway?”
The New York Observer
 
“If you have a stylista (or stylisto) on your list, buy this book.”
Toronto Star
 
“Grace is candid, but not salacious—if no gloves come off, it’s because Coddington never wore any in the first place. [Grace unfolds] in a very conversational, matter-of-fact manner…. Coddington isn’t shy about speaking her mind on industry issues…. But she also reveals some of the tenderness and friendship behind all the air-kissing.”
—Nathalie Atkinson, National Post
 
“Worth a read for the name-dropping alone.”
Los Angeles Times
