Description

After years at the tippy-top of the fashion world-modelling haute couture and starring in ad campaigns for the most exclusive fashion houses-GingerNutz, the na├»ve Bornean orangutan turned fashion’s darling, is itching for a new adventure.

In GingerNutz in Full Bloom: From Supermodel Orangutan to Style Icon and Beyond, our fashionable heroine segues from being the Vogue cover girl to the one who decides what the cover girl will wear and how she will wear it. As Vogue’s first orangutan fashion stylist, she selects from the most delectable garments and travels the world to direct the edgiest fashion shoots with top photographers. But this jet-set lifestyle, even with luxuries like suites at the Ritz and room service banana-beetle smoothies, begins to wear on her. GingerNutz decides that she absolutely must find a suitable country cottage to which she can retire and pursue proper English pastimes like gardening and tending to a menagerie of farm animals (with whom she feels quite at home). Before she settles into obscurity, though, she will enjoy one last flourish of the royal treatment…

Often described as "visionary," Michael Roberts was appointed the first fashion director of the New Yorker in 1997. The following decade, Graydon Carter named him fashion and style director of Vanity Fair, where he continues as the emeritus style editor-at-large. A celebrated illustrator and as a filmmaker, Michael Roberts is a recipient of an MTV award. He has authored many books, among them The Snippy World of Fashion Artist Michael Roberts (Steidl, 2005) and Fashion Victims (Harper Collins, 2008. Roberts also wrote Grace Coddington's memoir and edited two volumes of her work, Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue and The American Vogue Years. He wrote, coproduced, and directed Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards (2017). Roberts lives and works in Taormina, Sicily. Grace Coddington's extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. The daughter of a hotelier in Wales, Coddington was a teenager when she won a Vogue modeling competition and moved to London to become one of the top models on the city's swinging 1960s fashion scene. In 1968, she decided she wanted to work behind the camera and was hired by British Vogue as a junior editor. She soon established herself as a master stylist and in 1988 joined Anna Wintour at American Vogue, where she became its creative director at large.
