Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Grace's memoir is a little like movies that can't figure out what they want to be and the tone flip flops around, never sticking to one.

Coddington clearly has had an amazing life and she shows us a slice of cultural history from the inside and if you are interested in the fashion/modeling world during the early days, you will enjoy the book. However, her personal life is woven in and out of her professional life in a very uneven fashion. She glosses over the most painful parts of her life, but then delves a tiny bit deeper into other parts so you think you're going to get a juicy memoir sometimes, but you never do.

Her reporting of the early days is extensive and interesting, as we move into the current day, she gets less detailed and less interesting. We don't anything about how she really felt about almost anything. It's very detached except when she's talking about how she drew her eyeliner and her cats. In fact, her most passionate and bizarre chapter is all about her cats and to what lengths she goes to in order to take care of them. We get more info on the cats than on her infertility or feelings about it.

I did enjoy the parts about the early days of modern modeling, but overall it's just ok. I think the rating system is jacked for making three stars "it's ok" and one star "i hated it" so i'm giving it two stars because it's not that great and it left me with a little sour taste in my mouth. If she really didn't want her personal life in the book, then she should have and could have taken it out and focused on the professional side and made it a stronger book.

4.0 su 5 stelle One of the Heart and Souls at American VOGUE Magazine 28 aprile 2013
Di EarWaxDissertation - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I don't say this often about famous people, but Grace seems to have the type of personality that I could be in synch with. In the fashion world of drama queens and snooty people, Grace seems to keep her feet planted firmly on the ground. Though she is head creative director to one of the most important fashion publications in the world, she still attends the Met Ball in flats and little, if any, makeup. Coddington's writing style is quite approachable and easy reading. It would help to be familiar with the fashion world (designers, supermodels, and photographers). She shares many ancedotes about many of these people which could be done in a tasteless manner, but Coddington stays true and respectful. One of my favorite stories is when Anna Wintour (Editor in Chief at American VOGUE) had a cake made with a rendering of Grace on it. Anna, not pleased with the likeness of the rendering, stuck her signature famous sunglasses into cake to make the portrait of Grace more appealing. Soooo Anna. Another part of the book I love is Coddington's whimsical sketches scattered throughout the book which gave the book a personal touch that is rare to find in memoirs today. Grace also talks a bit about her creative processes, not in the depth that I usually like to pick an artists brain usually by, but its there: from her early days as a Vidal Sasson model, to her days making errors working for Calvin Klein, to her current post at American VOGUE. It's nice to get to know the faces behind the magic that touches millions of lives every day. Kudos Grace!

5.0 su 5 stelle GREAT MEMOIR 8 novembre 2013
Di Kasia - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I don't often read memoirs because I'm not exactly too interested in other people's real lives (which is why I more often turn to fiction).

But I must say Grace Coddington swept me off my feet.

I don't agree with some of the other reviewers that her writing is poor and uninteresting. Sure, it's not the most sophisticated language I've ever read, but it's not supposed to be a dissertation but an encapsulation of the others' voice, which I think was captured perfectly.

At first I wasn't sure if her life was fit for a memoir but it definitely was. Grace Coddington is an amazing character and this book just proves that her life is worthy of being put in writing. It's entertaining, fast-paced and focused on the magazine world but anyone who picks up a copy knows that her profession dictates her life story (or anyone who has watched "The September Issue"- I highly recommend it).

Don't buy this book if you're looking for a dry historical artifact like most other memoirs because you won't find it here. This memoir has a vivacious life of its owned that's contained within it but it certainly isn't a historical transcript of Grace Coddington. It's an entertaining and easy read, in a good way.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Must Read for Everyone! 28 ottobre 2015
Di RangerGirl - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
A lot of the world was introduce to Grace Coddington when the movie, The September Issue, came out about how Vogue puts the greatest issue of the year together. But, if you are a Vogue fanatic (like me) and have access to the internet (like me), you know who the woman behind the vision of the fashion editorials at Vogue is. This is her story.

I started out by listening to it as she read and had to buy the book. This woman...this ICON of fashion has been everywhere, done everything and met everyone. She is so humble and it comes through in this book. I've been amazed by her fashion editorial spreads for years but to hear how she decides what to do, how to dress the models, how she wants them to stand, etc. is fascinating.

Her early years as a model and the things she's been through in her life make her even more down to earth.

I so admire her and all she's done. Keep on keeping on, Grace. I hope you have many more years to make your magic at Vogue.

5.0 su 5 stelle Amusing and Interesting 16 gennaio 2013
Di Ria Darling - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Recensione Vine di un prodotto gratuito ( Cos'è? )
I never saw The September issue- I left Vogue behind about 3 years ago when I felt they became too elite for my tastes-but I love Grace Coddington. She's a wonderful narrator and, after 50+ years in fashion, has a lot to say. Most of it is a mix of her personal life (born in Wales, she became a model and worked for some top photographers), fashion and photographers, and the models, writers and celebs she has worked with on shoots. She's an engaging narrator and, while never going into too much detail about her emotions, you get a sense of her life and her accomplishments and what all this meant to her-it's am impressive body of work. If you're interested in Anna Wintour, great, because she's frequently mentioned. But the charm of the book is the handsketched drawings and witty chapter descriptions-and the love she shows for cats and her pride at her styling and editing. Many of the photographers and photo shoots she mentions are displayed in the book, along with credits, which was a great addition to the behind-the-scene details. This took longer to read than I expected, and, I think it helps to have a knowledge of fashion, but was a pleasure.
