It was a sad day for Grace Coddington, five supermodels, one small dog and the collective audience of RJ Cutler’s The September Issue when Anna Wintour chose to nix this photo from the pages of Vogue. Luckily for the aforementioned and now the world, it has finally appeared online thanks to Coco Rocha (pictured above, second from the right). If somebody had been clever, they could have made a small fortune hawking prints in cinema lobbies to punters grieving the cruel machinations of fashion. Shot by Steven Meisel, styled by Grace Coddington and also featuring Sasha Pivovarova, Natalia Vodianova and Agyness Deyn, it is filed on Rocha’s Tumblr under the tag ‘Outtakes’. And that’s evidence of one of life’s little certainties: Grace Coddington’s efforts that don’t make it past the cutting room floor will still look better than the best of ours.
