Having watched the documentary film about Vogue 'The September Issue' and loved it I was really looking forward to this book It does not disappoint I bought it for the kindle and am still working my way through it It is a thoroughly engrossing read about Grace's life from her home in Wales to when she became a model to how she got into the magazine side of things She has had a very interesting life thus far and perhaps could have had uite a successful career as a writer as she tells her tale with wit and insight At no point during this book did I get bored or wish to skip ahead; it is very well written She has also included drawings to illustrate it alongside photos she has taken in her work or that were taken of herI would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone She has a dry sarcastic humour but is also a romantic at heart Anyone looking for an insight into the fashion world the history of modellingphotographryVoguedesigners in general should read this With many contacts in the fashion world Grace traces each of their rises and falls from Calvin Klein to Galliano she seems to know all the big names and reduces them to the level of people rather than the grand icons they have become

Fabulous and funny by an amazingly hardworking unconventional stylist one of the world's leading stylists who moved from modelling after a horrendous car accident onto the other side of the camera helping to transform british and american Vogue in the process engagingly written conversational in tone and a wonderful look behind the scenes How much hard work goes into those ephemeral photographs of fashion perfection but written with such a light touch
