Flash Back: Grace Coddington on the Cover of British Vogue August 1962

There she is in all her gorgeousness. Grace Coddington gt her start as a fashion model destined to be the next “it girl”. With her sultry eyes and fiery red mane, she graced countless amounts of fashion spreads. But she almost lost her modelling career due a fatal car accident;  luckily, she had reconstructive surgery (her eyelid was sliced off), and was back in full-throttle in the early `60s.

As time would have it, Ms. Coddington wou;d stay in the fashion world, but this time behind the lense. She went on to become British Vogue’s Junior Fashion Editor, then was whisked off to Calvin Klein in America before joining Anna Wintour at US Vogue in 1988. She’s been there ever since.
