GingerNutz in Full Bloom: From Supermodel Orangutan to Style Icon and Beyond

By Michael Roberts

Foreword by Grace Coddington

GingerNutz used to be a normal young orangutan living in Borneo, head full of dreams about someday making it big in fashion. When a copy of Vogue magazine in a bottle washes up on shore, GingerNutz decides to make her dreams a reality by becoming the world’s first-ever orangutan supermodel.

In the third and final installment of British fashion journalist Michael Roberts' charming series, our heroine is eager for a new fashion adventure. After years of modeling haute couture as Vogue's cover girl, GingerNutz decides to become the one who decides what the cover girl should wear. Hand-picking garments from the latest collections and traveling the globe to direct photoshoots is exciting, but a young orangutan can only take so much of the jet-set lifestyle. Readers then join GingerNutz on her search for the perfect country cottage in which to to live out the rest of her days with some much-needed privacy—but not before she gets to enjoy one last flourish of the royal treatment.

Inspired by the life of fashion editor Grace Coddington and featuring 65 hand-drawn illustrations by Roberts, GingerNutz in Full Bloom is both a cheeky homage to the fashion icon’s storied career and a fantastical portrayal of the glitz and glam of the fashion world.
