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.
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.
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.
