Grace Coddington shares her beauty routine, story of her first kiss
Grace Coddington spills the beans on her typical beauty routine for ITG's "Top Shelf." Our favorite part, though, is when Coddington shares the story of her first kiss. "I put this lipstick on, and my boyfriend arrived at the door, and I got my first kiss. And I fainted! I was so working myself up for it that... I mean I didn't completely go unconscious, but weak at the knees. I felt that was fainting. But lipstick did the trick for me, obviously!" Aww. {Into the Gloss}
