What's Grace Coddington's Photographic Style?

Find out the answer in the video after the jump.

Let me begin by apologizing for the crap-tastic photographs and video. I wasn't sure if I was going to attend the Author Talk that Barnes & Noble hosted on Monday night - hence, no real camera.

Now that I have that off of my chest (whew!), let's get to the highlights of the discussion.

1: Grace is not a tech savvy lady. In order for her to "read" an e-mail, she has her faithful assistant, Stella Greenspan, print off the important ones and then has them handed to her. 

2: She agreed to her first modeling gig on a whim, not knowing that it required her to be nude. Don't worry, things turned out fine and there was no "hanky panky" involved during or after the shoot. She even swears the photographer's wife was back at the house making them both a cup of tea for them to drink after the shoot!

3: She wouldn't trade her modeling career that began in 1959 for the lifestyle of current models. Back in the day, you would travel to a location and actually get to experience the city/country, not jet off to another place in the same day. 

4. Grace doesn't exactly like to be the center of attention, let alone speaking in public. So filming The September Issue and going on a book tour isn't exactly her cup of tea.

5: Her photographic style is . . . drum roll please. Well, you'll have to watch the video below to find out the answer.
