Amazing Grace

Anyone who has seen The September Issue will agree that if Anna Wintour is the brains behind Vogue, Grace Coddington has to be one of her greatest creative assets.  Her unmistakeable style, developed over 40 years in fashion editing at British and American Vogue, stands out in every issue.  From a 17th century picnic featuring haute-couture from Christian Lacroix in 1998 to Drew Barrymore as the Beauty in 2005 and Natalia Vodianova as Little Red Riding Hood in this month’s issue, each spread is more beautiful than the next.  As Grace said while gazing out of a car window in Paris: “You must keep your eyes open…  Everything you see is a source of inspiration.”  Since we are inspired by nature, we especially love how Grace uses the outdoors to showcase gorgeous fashion.
