Sure to be at the top of many a fashion-fan's Christmas wish list is a copy of Grace Coddington's autobiography "Grace: A Memoir". The flame-haired creative director of US Vogue has been an icon in the industry for decades, and we (amongst many others) can't wait to get our paws on her sure-to-be-a-best-seller book. The queue started outside Browns in London well before the 11am signing was due to begin, and the first 300 copies sold out in hours — leaving Random House staff to frantically re-stock the store. Of writing the autobiography (with the help of co-author Michael Roberts) Grace said, "Funnily enough, the most emotional part was a reading I did for the audio [version], and I got emotional then. It was really weird that I’d been able to talk my way through it and be fine, but then when I read it, like when my sister died and things, suddenly I teared up. That was a long time ago." Dymocks has hard cover copies available now, so we suggest you click to it before they sell out!
