Grace Coddington Steps Down as Creative Director at Vogue

The big fashion news today was that Grace Coddington, Creative Director and stylist extraordinaire at American Vogue for the past twenty-seven years has stepped down from her role. Grace fans don't despair, she will still work for Vogue as Creative Editor-at-Large in what appears to be similar to a consultant role and do several stories a year, whilst pursuing other work. She's been talking about leaving for the past ten years, and the move means change at the top ranks of Vogue for the first time in years. Most of know Grace through the 2009 documentary The September Issue (who can forget the tussle between her and Anna Wintour) and fashion fans will own her best-selling 2012 autobiography Grace, as well as the 2002 Vogue tome - Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue. Vogue has no plans to replace her at present, and she's got plenty of other projects in the pipeline, such as perfume collaboration with Comme des Garcons, a film planned based on her autobiography, and a new role as Conde Nast Spokeswoman. At 74, the former model turned fashion legend is showing no signs of slowing down.
