A Dublin woman has been charged with stealing more than $50,000 (€43,000) from Vogue magazine's creative director Grace Coddington.

Yvonne Bannigan (25) was employed as an assistant to US Vogue creative director-at-large Ms Coddington in New York before her arrest in April.

Ms Bannigan is charged with second and third-degree grand larceny.

She is accused of making $53,564 worth of unauthorised purchases on Ms Coddington's credit card, sources have said.

Ms Bannigan also allegedly sold some of Ms Coddington's property TheRealReal, on an online second-hand store.

She is accused of keeping $9,000 (€7,700) in commission for herself.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Ms Bannigan had worked for the Vogue executive (77) since February 2016. She was a freelance assistant at Vogue for a year before that.

Ms Bannigan had also held intern roles at Elle Magazine and Zac Posen before working at Vogue.

Her lawyer, Michael Cornacchia, said the incident was believed to be a misunderstanding that he hoped would be sorted out.

"She didn't do anything wrong," he said.

Legendary

Ms Coddington was Vogue's legendary creative director for 30 years before she announced she was stepping down in 2016.

After taking a step back from her day-to-day pos ition at the magazine, she took on her current role as creative director-at-large while working on other projects outside the publication.
