* Grace by Grace Coddington

Fashion lovers should love Grace: A Memoir, which chronicles the life of the author, from model to fashion director. I am not a fashion lover, and I was rather amazed by how the author seems to remember (and care) more about the specific clothes she wore at one of her several weddings than she does about the grooms. There is much tattletaling about the rich and famous,  a stupendous amount of self-adoration in the form of the magazine features she put together, and a truly bizarre chapter all about her cats — all unfortunately overshadowing the personal narrative that is, to me. much more interesting: her move from a tiny town to London, the tremendous amount of effort she put into her work, and her difficult relationship with her sister.
