Grace Coddington, US Vogue's Creative Director, has curated an online auction of nude art and photography for Paddle8, named No Clothes. Grace's imaginative spreads in Vogue have inspired the fashion and art obsessed across the world and now she's curated a selection of works that have, in turn, inspired her.
“Every picture starts off naked. The model is naked, the hair is undone, the set is naked—and this is the starting point of the creative process.”
Works range from an original Matisse linocut, Nu au Bracelet, to an Irving Penn nude, to a portrait of Natalia Vodianova by Mario Testino. View the full collection here and fall in love all over again with Grace's work and with the beautiful human form.
P.S If you haven't yet, watch The September Issue - the film might be about Anna Wintor, but Grace is the star that shines bright.
