GingerNutz Takes Paris

An Orangutan Conquers Fashion

By Michael Roberts. Foreword by Grace Coddington.

GingerNutz Takes Paris

In this adorable sequel to the 2017 hit GingerNutz, the eponymous orangutan supermodel hits Paris

She's back! After becoming a breakout star in the fashion world, GingerNutz, the first Bornean-born orangutan supermodel, has landed in Paris for a whirlwind week of fittings, photo shoots and parties. Though born in humble jungle surroundings, the precocious primate quickly adjusts to life at the upper echelons of the fashion world: bookings at all the maisons de haute couture, front-row seats to the latest theater shows and hotel suites at the Ritz (with an unlimited supply of fresh bananas).

In this sequel to GingerNutz: The Jungle Memoir of a Model Orangutan, we see the ginger-haired beauty cavorting about the famous landmarks of Paris—Notre Dame Cathedral, Café de Flore—and visiting the ateliers of storied fashion designers, including Azzedine Alaïa, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Comme des Garçons and Dries Van Noten. Being the hottest model of the moment, GingerNutz will also model the latest styles—among them, Chanel, Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton, chosen at the Fall 2018 ready-to-wear shows in Paris by Grace Coddington. Michael Roberts' charming text and hand-drawn illustrations capture the wonder and whimsy of a glamorous but still naive young girl's adventures in Paris. The story of GingerNutz was inspired by legendary model and fashion editor Grace Coddington, the longtime creative director of American Vogue and a close friend of the author.

British fashion journalist Michael Roberts (born 1947) is fashion royalty: former fashion director for Vanity Fair and the New Yorker, he has brought his impeccable style to his work as a writer, illustrator, art director and photographer. He has published several books of his illustrations, including The Snippy World of Michael Roberts and The Jungle ABC.

GingerNutz Takes Paris serves not only as a reminder of the fun side of fashion, but also as a tribute to Grace’s unwavering influence and the original (and dare we say returning) fashion capital of the world.

Celebrate Fashion Week with GingerNutz in Paris!

Featured image is reproduced from GingerNutz Takes Paris, in which the supermodel orangutan (modeled on Grace Coddington) conquers fashion across the pond. For example, when GingerNutz goes out on the town, "She started out merrily playing the accordion on the bohemian streets of Montmartre before attending a show at the Folies Bergère, having been given a front-row ticket by her agency. Knowing her fondness for bananas, they couldn't wait to hear her reaction to Josephine Baker, the musical star whose theme for the show was bananas. And so it was that French TV carried sensational news film that evening of GingerNutz chasing the star around the stage trying to steal the bananas from her skirt." continue to blog

Fashion Week Staff Favorite 'GingerNutz Takes Paris' reeks with chic

Featured image is reproduced from GingerNutz Takes Paris: An Orangutan Conquers Fashion, Michael Roberts' second illustrated tribute to fashion-world legend Grace Coddington by way of the ginger-haired orangutan supermodel named GingerNutz. "What GingerNutz and I share—apart from our unmissable hair color—is our love of fashion," Coddington writes in her Introduction. "Even during our early modeling days, we both had an eye for style that could transform the most pedestrian outfit. And where did we develop this? In Paris, of course, where the simplest everyday item can reek with chic." continue to blog
