Grace Coddington with Dachshund, Buckinghamshire. 18th March 1964.

Have you seen 'The September Issue'? Trust me, if you adore fashion you will absolutely love this film.

It follows editor-in-chief Anna Wintour in preparations for the 2008 Fall issue of Vogue Magazine.

The portrayal of Wintour is often harsh and as planned she comes across as someone to be feared and revered.

Working alongside Anna is talented Creative Director Grace Coddington (left). Coddington shares with the audience intimate details about her life. From modelling on the London fashion scene in the 60's, through to finally ending up at US Vogue.

Coddington's attention to detail and creative flair is evident in every shoot that she styles. As inspiring as Anna Wintour may be, I found myself intrigued and fascinated by Coddington's unique approach to styling. Coddington pushes the boundaries, often taking the unconventional approach. It is the fashion industry after all, where would we be without people like her?
