WELL RED: Vogue’s creative director, Grace Coddington, continues to win far more than 15 minutes of fame for her scene-stealing turn in “The September Issue,” the documentary film about the magazine that premiered earlier this week. The September issue of French Vogue, arriving on newsstands Monday, devotes four pages to the flame-haired editor, including one devoted to tear sheets from her modeling days. The accompanying two-page article delves into her sometimes-prickly relationship with editor in chief Anna Wintour and contains this zinger: “Anna and I, we’ve known each other a long time.…We have a real mutual respect for each other, even though sometimes I feel like killing her.” It’s a sentiment Coddington also expresses in the documentary.

The French Vogue piece follows an article in the fall 2009 issue of T magazine, in which Coddington confesses she slyly used filmmaker R.J. Cutler’s crew for espionage purposes. “They were following Anna in the art department, listening to her reaction to my pictures. So I would ask them, ‘What did she say? Did she like them?’” As for stealing Wintour’s thunder, Coddington demurred: “It wasn’t intentional.” — Miles Socha
