Gracie (グレース, Gurēsu, Grace) is a celebrity fashion designer who occasionally passes through the undeveloped towns of the country, impacting the lives of fashion-conscious villagers. As a giraffe, Gracie is naturally tall and elegant, but she knows how to earn respect. Not only is she the number one name in fashion, she has no known rivals. It is unknown if she is connected with Fauna Magazine, however, snooty villagers will sometimes call her outfits "trash" and her car a rusty heap. Gracie has appeared in every Animal Crossing series game to date, however, was not featured in Doubutsu no Mori (film).

In Doubutsu no Mori, Doubutsu no Mori+, and Doubutsu no Mori e+, Gracie is a male. She looks the same as in the international versions, but Japanese Animal Crossing series sites will state she is male. This is the same as with Saharah.

Appearances[edit]

Gracie in Animal Crossing

In the earlier installments in the Animal Crossing series, Gracie will visit the players town on a random week day. The player can wash Gracie's car by tapping the 'A' button. If the player is slow, nothing is rewarded, if the player is moderately fast, a regular shirt is given, and if the player is fast, Gracie will reward the player with a Gracie-brand shirt.

Ironically, when Copper and Booker hold a Bust Illegal Parkers campaign, Gracie, showing her disregard for the law, parks illegally, and manages to get away with it. Despite being female in the international release of Animal Crossing, Gracie retains her male voice, which sounds exactly the same as a lazy or jock villager.

Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, Gracie will come on a random week day, standing on the front of her car in front of the Town Hall. She will make a quiz for the player, and then will reward them with clothing. After talking too much with her again, she will ask the player to make an offer (in Bells) on a style (a hat and clothing). However, she will not show the player the style until she accepts the offer.

When she is in the players town, Booker will say: "Hm... I don't remember how long ago it was, but a fancy car rolled up here...".

Also, if the player catches a tire, the player will say "Is this from Gracie's car?!", even if Gracie has never even been to the town.

Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

Gracie in City Folk

Gracie has a store called GracieGrace, named after herself; the only apparent staff member is Labelle. GracieGrace carries not only clothing, but furniture too. The items stocked are expensive, but there are end-of-season sales where the player can buy items that are marked down.

Gracie will randomly appear at GracieGrace. When the player speaks to her, the player can get an appraisal of their ensemble. The items considered are the players clothes, accessories, haircut, hair color, and shoes. If the player wears a helmet or wig, hair color and style are not considered.

Gracie will comment on the player's look, if any, and the shoes. She will mention the player's haircut if she does not like it.

If the player's ensemble is sufficiently coordinated, Gracie will give the player a 10% discount on their GracieGrace purchases. The discount is good only while in the store.

Gracie is also featured on two magazine covers in Shampoodle, these magazines are copies of Ms. Nintendique, a fashion and beauty magazine. These magazines can also be seen in Shampoodle in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

After the player has upgraded Timmy and Tommy's store to T.I.Y., Gracie will start appearing at the Event Plaza on random week days. When she appears, she will mention that she is looking for a town where she can open her shop, GracieGrace, but has yet to decide which town she deems worthy enough for her image. Thus, in order to decide, she asks the player to partake in her Fashion Check.

If the player manages to pass her Fashion Check four times, and if other various requirements are met, T.I.Y. will upgrade to the T&T Emporium, and Gracie will open her own personal store, GracieGrace, on the third floor.

Gracie's voice has been changed to sound more like a female, with the same voice of a snooty or uchi villager. This change is made in all versions of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, including the Japanese version (despite Gracie being male in the Japanese version).

According to the Gossip Stone (an item new to Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo), "Gracie" is not actually her real name.

Personality[edit]

Gracie is highly pampered and prefers to live the glamorous life, driving expensive cars, and going to great lengths to maintain her fashionable reputation. Even when visiting small towns, as she frequently does as a form of recreation, she makes sure to wear excessive make-up and keep her auto-mobile clean. Speaking with the villagers, she maintains a haughty air, even going so far as to brag that she, and no one else, is the famous Gracie. She exhibits a blatant disregard for local parking laws. Every time Copper and Booker hold a Bust Illegal Parkers campaign, Gracie parks illegally and manages to get away with it. Additionally, the giraffe is notorious for dropping her cars’ old tires into rivers and oceans.

Gracie literally laughs at the concept of pulling favors out of the goodness of her heart. If one desires her assistance, she requires payment in return, either in the form of money or services. However, only if favors done for her are to her liking will she repay others. Whenever her car becomes dirty, she demands a nearby villager to clean it up. Only if this task is done to her liking, she gives the villager a shirt from her fashion line. Yet, the designer has shown a soft spot for the backwater world. Despite her insults, she repeatedly has developed a respect for the fashion senses of the villagers. When she is in town, she stops by the Able Sisters, occasionally finding a design that interests her. She has stated that "hicks" never fail to impress her with their fashion creativity, or making her turn up her snout at.

Snooty villagers appear to love her designs and Gracie's voice resembles that of a Snooty Villager's.

Professional Life[edit]

Gracie's Fashion Line[edit]

Gracie works in the fashion industry. Her designs are so well known that her name is synonymous with fashion among the townsfolk and the rest of the world. It can be inferred that she hails from a large city, perhaps the city often mentioned in the back stories of the townsfolk. However, rather than be squashed by the city, Gracie has used the hustle and bustle to become famous. From her personality, one can infer that people wait on her hand and foot. This implies that she employs a large staff and may even own her own fashion company named after herself.

Fashionista Badge[edit]

When Gracie visits towns, she has been known to notice particularly "saucy" looking villagers. After asking them a series of fashion questions, she presents them with the Fashionista Badge, a sign of how close their impression of fashion is to her own. Occasionally, Gracie will include a moldy shirt as a subtle hint. The implication is that the receiver would look better in a moldy shirt from the Gracie line rather than what he or she is currently wearing. Usually, this gift is given the first time a particular individual receives the badge, perhaps in order, in a somewhat disdainful way, to teach him or her their proper place in the world of fashion. When talking to other animals in the players town, the snooty and sometimes the normal villagers may give the player a clue as to what Gracie looks for in a Fashionista Badge. Wearing the Gracie Shirt will give the player a better chance of getting a Fashionista Badge with a good comment. She will also compliment the player on the choice of clothes.

Gracie also gives an outfit for 300 Bells if the player persistently bothers her. Items like the Nile Shirt can be given.

Effect on the Town[edit]

Whenever Gracie visits the town, the snooty villagers take note. Occasionally, Gracie will create an outfit for villagers who do her favors or pay her money. As a result, Gracie's designs have become coveted among female villagers. Peppy villagers sincerely hope that the reason they have not experienced much success in their performing careers is that they do not have fancy clothes, and they see Gracie's fashions as a way to correct the issue. The lazy villagers have been known to admit crushes on Gracie, as women of her beauty do not often visit the town. Gracie calls cranky villagers "Evil Clowns" in which they have a hatred toward Gracie.

When Copper was a police officer, Gracie's disregard for the law frustrates him. Held to his post, he cannot arrest her, although he obviously entertains the thought.
