Those of you who’ve already seen “The September Issue” know that while the documentary sheds light on Vogue‘s normally inaccessible editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, the real star of the show is the magazine’s creative director, Grace Coddington. And now that Fashion Week is upon us, we’ll be spying on her in the front row every day.

The 68-year-old woman with the witchy red hair isn’t a household name like her boss, but “The September Issue” shows that Coddington is an essential cog in the Vogue wheel (Wintour calls her “our jewel in the crown”). The film made us curious about the creative director who spoke intelligently about fashion, a subject many consider to be fluff. Click through to learn more about the woman who is arguably the most influential stylist in fashion today.
