Full Of Grace

Hands up anyone who doesn’t love the talented, beautiful and down-to-earth American Vogue creative director Grace Coddington.

How exciting that the photographer Willie Christie – her ex-husband – exhibited his fashion photographs of a young Grace shot in the 70s at the Century Club in London. Yes, I’ve written that in past tense, ‘exhibited’. The exhibition was on through September – what a shame I missed it! The photographs are absolutely gorgeous.

“I was seriously thinking of getting rid of them; they were taking up too much space,” Christie says. “I’d never thought that I would need them for anything, or whether anybody would ever be interested.”

Doesn’t she look like a filmstar from the 40s?
