For its September issue, Teen Vogue interviewed five of her former assistants about their experiences working under Coddington. The ladies started from the beginning, describing how they first landed the coveted gig and their nerve-wracking first days. They went on to reveal the major things they learned from her. "You taught me how to fight, you taught me how to tell a story, you taught me the importance of a good laugh," one assistant said. "I enjoyed every minute I got to stand next to you." Another one said that Coddington taught her to "value the people who are interesting beyond the noise."
