All hail Grace, the queen of style and fashion AND the first ginger to make to the Fierce Females list! The first, but definitely not the last 😛

Grace Coddington is the super stylish and imaginative creative director at American Vogue and she’s the talented lady that’s behind all the amazing fashion spreads that look so beautifully put together.  I mean look at this…

Gorgeous!

Grace started off as a Vogue model at the age of 17 but a car accident left her with head and eye injuries and she soon switched to being behind the fashion scene at British Vogue as a junior editor. She’s slogged her way up through the ranks from British Vogue to working with Calvin Klein and then in 1988 began working with the “ice queen” Anna Wintour and American Vogue and the rest, as they say, is history.

I also absolutely adore Grace’s Instagram page, it’s filled with sketches and pics of her cats Bart and Pumpkin! They’re are sooooooooooooooooo cute!!

So this Sunday I firmly clasp my September Issue and hail Grace, the queen of fabulous taste and all that is chic and ethereal.

I must be honest I’ve never heard of Grace Coddington but the way you speak of her as well as these gorgeous pics I’ll definitely be paying more attention to Vogue’s magazine more often!!! Its so amazing how she turned her weakness(car accident) into a positve and is still going strong!
