Fashion and Fitness worlds collide

On my way to the gym on Saturday, I saw Grace Coddington walking into a pilates studio in my neighborhood. I love her. If you have not seen the September Issue- I suggest you see it right away- Grace Coddington is hilarious and talented and the most entertaining part of the documentary.
THEN, while at the gym, I had a moment of fashion surreality when Francisco Costa (sitting on the leg raise machine) exclaims "Hi Marc!", at which point Marc Jacobs walks over and says-"Oh hi I didn't see you there!" kiss kiss. Then my head exploded from fashion icon overload.

I love your work, they are amazing. Where do you think I could find "the september issue" I have trying to find it forever it looks amazing, and as lame as this sounds I saw Grace Coddington on the "cat lady" episode of the Martha Stewart Show!

I'm at Crunch on 59th on the east side + never run into anyone there! MJ + Grace in one day: too cool.
