Grace Coddington, the passionate and flame-haired doyenne of fashion. It is said that she has the knack of being in the right place at the right time; that she can predict a trend; turn a piece of clothing into a best-seller which flies off the racks; spot the most talented new photographers, and break out models who epitomize the look of the moment. What is certainly true is that clothes inspire Grace to tell stories; and she has told hundreds of them over the 50 years she has spent in the fashion industry with pictures realised in careful collaborations. And now, here, she tells her own story. Beginning in wartime Anglesey, Grace: A Memoir follows her trajectory from London in the swinging Sixties, to Paris at the start of the ready-to-wear revolution, and on to America in the late 1980's when the era of power-dressing and the supermodel began, and the centre of gravity in the fashion world shifted from Europe to the US. More than simply a memoir, this is a cultural history of the last half century, populated by the beautiful people - the models, actors, designers and photographers who make up Grace's world. Along the way Grace shares her forthright views on everything from plastic surgery, cats, photography in the digital era and the nature of beauty.

The charming story of GingerNutz, an orangutan born in the wilds of Borneo who has dreams of making it big in the fashion world. Michael Roberts's charming text and hand drawn illustrations tell the story of GingerNutz, an orangutan born in the wilds of Borneo who has dreams of making it big in the fashion world. One day while playing on the beach, the ten year old GingerNutz finds a bottle washed up on the shore containing a copy of Vogue magazine. Entranced by the glamorous images on its glossy pages, the precocious primate sets her mind to becoming a high fashion model. She dedicates herself to grooming her coat, creating makeup from exotic flowers, and styling her ginger hued hair. Unlikely as it may seem, she encounters other likeminded jungle creatures - the creative orangutan duo Dolce and Grubbana, a haughty and chic silverback gorilla - who together create their own hyper stylish coterie, and GingerNutz fulfils her dream of sashaying down the runway. The story of GingerNutz was inspired by legendary model and fashion editor Grace Coddington, the long-time creative director of American Vogue and a close friend of the author. The book contains 65 hand drawn illustrations that vividly depict the lush and colourful Bornean fashion community.

Engage using #manrepeller. Silk parachute pants. A gold lamé jumpsuit. Ankle boots with fringe. Were these fashion-forward items sending men running in the opposite direction? Maybe, but Leandra Medine never cared. Slipping into drop-crotch shorts and a boxed sequin blazer in the dressing room of Topshop in downtown Manhattan, a brokenhearted Leandra had an epiphany. Looking in the mirror, she suddenly realized she didn't have a boyfriend because of the way she dressed. And the more she thought about it, the more she realized that such outfits said a lot about her life-romantic and otherwise. Now, in her first book, the acclaimed blogger and fashion darling recounts her most significant memories through the lens of her sartorial choices. With her signature sass, blunt honesty, and some personal photos, Leandra shares details of the night she lost her virginity right down to the pair of white tube socks she forgot to take off, as well as when and why she realized her grandma's vintage Hermès ostrich skin clutch could hold much more than just keys and a cell phone. Through it all, she proves you don't need to compromise even your most repellent qualities to find your way into that big white dress (and an organza moto jacket). See? You can have your yeti and wear it, too. Showcasing the singular voice that has won Leandra millions of fans, this book is a collection of awkwardly funny experiences, a sweet love story, and above all, a reminder to celebrate and embrace a world made for women, by women.

The originator of both the Twiggy phenomenon and such eminently quotable fashion proverbs as 'Pink is the navy blue of India'. Diana Vreeland reigned as queen of the fashion world over fifty years. As fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and editor in chief of Vogue, she was obsessed with fashion high and low and used the pages of the magazine to bring her love of the bizarre and the absurd to her audience. She also created dozens of famous exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's costume Institute. In this glittering autobiography we see 'D.V.' giving Jack Nicholson a black plaster in the lobby of a London restaurant, asserting that all her plump friends had gotten 'champagne chins', and being feted by Coco Chanel in her Paris home. She tells tales of the Prince Wales and Clark Gables, Jackei O. and Buffalo Bill.
