US Vogue creative director, and firm fashion favourite, Grace Coddington's first Instagram post, a topless selfie (in illustrative form) was briefly removed from Instagram over the weekend.

Immediately fans of the outspoken fashion stalwart sprang into action, with a super cute campaign to get fashion's favourite ginger back on Instagram (see below).

By Monday, Coddington had been re-installed on the social media platform most likely to induce envy, with a representative from Instagram telling New York Magazine's The Cut,

"When our team processes reports from other members of the Instagram community, we occasionally make a mistake. In this case, we wrongly removed content and worked to rectify the error as soon as we were notified. We apologize for any convenience."

Coddington followed up her nude pic with a sketch of her two cats, one with its privates censored.

We're so pleased that Grace has returned, because she really is the best at Instagram.

Rather than posting humble-brag photos of heels and accessories at showroom previews or envy-inducing shots of exotic locales or peonies in vases with handwritten notes from some famous designers, her charming self-portrait in the nuddy was a breath of fresh air. 

The sketch was posted to mark her involvement with online art auction house, Paddle8. As Coddington's quoted as saying on their website:

"Every picture starts off naked. The model is naked, the hair is undone, the set is naked - and this is the starting point of the creative process." 

With her keen eye for beautiful and artful things, Coddington is currently curating a collection of nude works titled 'No Clothes', which includes contributions from her friends Arthur Elgort and Ryan McGinley.

There you have it. Grace's nude portrait may be more playful than erotic, but it's a nude portrait nonetheless. We can't wait until she starts uploading more close-ups of that adorable fluffball cat of hers named Pumpkin

Oh, you can find her @therealgracecoddington in case you wanted to stalk follow.

Fans of #instagrace expressed their outrage at her ban:
