Since I devoured The September Issue I have definitely been slightly obsessed with Grace Coddington, American Vogue‘s Creative Director and indispensable fixture in the industry for more than 40 years. There are many out there with the opinion that Grace totally stole the show from Anna Wintour in the film and I happen to agree. I was completely drawn to her tenacity and spirit. She is truly an artist and to see her weave her creative magic in spite of many obstacles and objections along the way was one of the highlights of the film for me.
Grace’s advice to surviving the fashion industry?
“There is no secret—just by absolutely loving what you do.”
And for the obsessed, this fabulous shirt from Deer Dana. I am coveting this and adding it to my wishlist!
How much do I love Jason Wu?! His Spring 2010 RTW collection just gives me such a charge! His approach to American sportswear for this collection bumps up more casual pieces with luxe fabric choices and, as always, an impeccable eye for color. He initially caught my attention with the inaugural ball dress worn by Michelle Obama last year and again, more recently, in the September 2009 issue of American Vogue where he teaches Florence Kane how to sew!
Going through the images from his show was utter eye candy! It was hard to narrow down a few favorites but here they are:

Have a fabulous Sunday!
