For her new Vogue cooking video series (yes, irony noted), Elettra Wiedemann went to Grace Coddington's apartment to make potatoes gratin and beef wrapped in fat (yes, really — but it's a well-known fact that fashion people love to pretend to love food). "It's a dish that any Vogue person really shouldn't be making, because it's incredibly bad for you," Coddington explains, pouring a pint of cream over sliced potatoes. Major highlights: Coddington's very fluffy cat, Bart, who licks his chops as he watches, and Coddington doing a little shimmy to demonstrate how models were supposed to dance on runways in the sixties. "I really love what I do," she says, "or else I wouldn't still be here annoying Anna, you know." Oh, Grace.
