To Covet & Avoid: Books By Grace Coddington And Tinsley Mortimer
Fall in love with Vogue creative director Grace Coddington in “The September Issue”? Lucky us. Some smartypants publisher has convinced Anna Wintour’s right-hand woman to pen a memoir. She’ll share her life as a model in ’60s London and her decades-plus at both British and American Vogue. Grace’s book will be co-written with the former editor-in-chief of Men’s Vogue.
But it’s not all good news in the style section of your local bookstore … In addition to her stints as handbag designer and D-list reality show star (“High Society” was canceled by CW after one season), socialite Tinsley Mortimer is adding “novelist” to her resume. We predict a Sex & The City/Confessions of a Shopaholic knockoff, ghostwritten by a half-starved and desperate recent University of Iowa grad. Stick with Coddington’s book instead!
