LAST SLIDE

Grace Coddington’s Favorite Nudes of All Time

Grace Coddington may be known best for her ability to put clothes onto people, but a new exhibition she's curated on the online auction site Paddle8 shows she's quite talented at the whole getting undressed thing, too. No Clothes, a sale of 35 nude works she's curated, goes on sale today through May 16. And it's a visual feast: There are pieces by modern masters (including a linocut by Matisse) and graceful photographs from the likes of Bruce Weber, Mario Testino, and Peter Lindbergh. After all, nudity is, in itself, a canvas. “Every picture starts off naked," Coddington says. "The model is naked, the hair is undone, the set is naked — and this is the starting point of the creative process.” Click through our slideshow for highlights of the sale, from Drew Barrymore by Ellen Von Unwerth, Madonna by Herb Ritts — and even Coddington herself wrapped in palm leaves.
