At Home With Grace Coddington

image

Anything Grace Coddington is always good in my book  + when I saw these pics of her at home, parts of her memoir came alive inside my head.  Her love for cats was never so apparent.  Besides her beloved Bart, who is the cutest thing ever, you see her cat pillows she’s been collecting since the 80s (below). image

You also get to see shelves all of the English ceramics, cat teapots + mugs Coddington has collected for decades which make a powerful statement en masse (above).  I love the Chanel blanket + all the pictures lining up Grace’s  bedroom.

Now, thanks to her years of collecting, although known for styling the best fashion moments ever, she’s been enlisted to focus on the nude subject.  Entitled Vogue: ‘No Clothes.’, the online auction of nudes curated by Grace on Paddle8 will be available to view May 1 – May 16.  

Here’s just a few of the photos to be auctioned off:
