Grace Coddington, creative director of Vogue and the not-so-secret favorite staffer of true fashion nerds everywhere, is without a doubt a nonpareil within the industry. Over the past 30-something years, Grace has enriched our lives with some of fashion's most beautiful and reality-suspending images. From a coffee-table worthy memoir that we actually read (twice!), to an ALS ice bucket challenge that blew our minds, Grace has always been the best. But, how does she do it?

It's the industry leader's 74th birthday today, and as a Taurus, she's known for her brightness and creativity. If you've ever been lucky enough to spot Grace and her luminous hair in real life — whether at Fashion Week or shuffling down the fruit aisles of her Chelsea neighborhood's Whole Foods — you know she stores both brightness and creativity right there in her signature red locks. We're not saying, but we're not not saying, that her mane, that bewitching cloud of mystery and wonder, has something to do with her power, her mystique, her Grace.
