The Iconic Images Of Grace Coddington's American Vogue Years

Updated: 23 September 2016
Fashion’s most fabulous redhead, Grace Coddington, celebrates her legacy in a new book out this month. The creative director at large of Vogue brings together nearly 300 images, personal anecdotes and essays to cast a new light on the iconic shoots she has worked on since 2002, during her tenure at American Vogue.

Inside the sleek, slipcase volume, readers will encounter works by the leading contemporary photographers, including Steven Meisel, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, David Sims, Mert Atlas, Marcus Piggot, Craig McDean and Steven Klein. The versatility of Coddington’s creative eye is consistently clear throughout. From surreal portraits to fantastical collaborations with Tim Walker, the flame-haired director imbues each image with lashings of imagination, style and sartorial flair. A veritable legend in her own time, Grace Coddington stepped away from a full time position at Vogue in January 2016 to pursue other projects — launching her own perfume, and starring in the new Calvin Klein campaign (amongst other things).
