I-D’s “Wise Up Issue” hits newsstands on November 22, and when it does, Grace Coddington will be on one of its eight covers wearing a Céline coat in a photograph by Arthur Elgort. The inimitable Creative Director of Vogue will soon be releasing her memoir (a must-read for any fashion lover, I’m sure) and she’s an inspiration to all of those who wish to be unique and make their mark on the world. Forum members couldn’t help but fall in love at first sight with Grace’s cover, but they’re getting tired of what they see as i-D’s gimmicky use of multiple covers.
Mistress_f posted, “I love it. Too bad there's as usual seven more covers, and I bet the subjects/results won't be as interesting as Grace.”
“How can you not love this woman?” ALAUU asked.
“This is probably my favorite i-D cover of the year,” Faith Akiyama declared. “The perfect shot by the perfect duo!”
Other covers are rumored to feature Lara Stone shot by Daniele + Iango, Will Chalker and a baby shot by Bruno Staub, Cara Delevingne shot by Angelo Pennetta, Lena Dunham shot by Todd Cole, Neneh Cherry shot by Mark Lebon, and Laetitia Casta shot by Daniele + Iango. I’m sure they’ll all be great, but do we really need anything more when we’ve got Grace?
