Vogue creative director at large Grace Coddington’s new show debuted online Wednesday with her first guest, Ansel Elgort.
“Face to Grace” features interviews with celebrities inside New York City’s Mr. Chow, a Chinese restaurant owned by actor — and Coddington’s ex-husband — Michael Chow. Aside from Elgort, Anna Wintour, Sofia Coppola, Nicolas Ghesquière and Chow will star on the show. The interviews are more intimate than we’re used to seeing on most talk shows as Coddington and her guests appear merely to catch up over food.
“There’s something about talking over a meal that makes people relax,” Coddington told Vanity Fair in an interview. “And you can sort of get to talk about silly things, or not — or serious things, or whatever. And you can take it anywhere, as opposed to, you know, on a proper talk show.” She added that David Letterman’s interviewing finesse was her role model for the show. “I think he’s so incredible…and that’s my dream: when I grow up, I’d like to be David Letterman,” Coddington said.
The episode that’s out right now is the interview with Elgort. Start watching the series on the Made to Measure network online.
