When Grace, creative director for Vogue was told about the filming of The September Issue, she had this to say:
My reaction to this intrusive idea was naturally one of horror, because my feeling has always been that people should concentrate on their jobs and not all this fashionable “I want to be a celebrity” shit.
I found the film, Ms Coddington herself and her memoir all entirely fascinating. And dare I say? The quote I pulled…should be engraved in stone, which is kind of interesting (bringing the conversation back to my self-promoting shameless self) considering that in a sense—my novel—is partially about the corrosive effects of maintaining a public image.
