what did you get for your last birthday? socks? a sweater? a living object (plants, puppies, flowers, etc)?
the cut profiled r.j. cutler, (the man behind the curtain responsible for the september issue) and asked what he got grace cunnington for her 70th birthday last week:
For her birthday, Cutler presented Coddington with an antique silver locket — with a twist. “It doesn’t open; instead, you pull out a very thin measuring tape, and etched on it is Gucci. It was a Gucci measuring tape, probably used by their seamstresses.” He bought the trinket back when they were shooting the documentary and was waiting for the right moment to give it to the Vogue creative director.
what do you give the girl who has everything? a gucci measuring tape, of course!
