There are few people who have shaped the fashion world the way Diana Vreeland has! Just ask the countless number of models, designers, actors and photographers who were interviewed for the latest documentary, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, which hit New York and Los Angeles theaters on September 21st.
This intimate portrait of the late editor dives into Diana’s early life from growing up in Paris and seeing the coronation of King George V, to her decision to attend a Russian ballet school while her family moved to New York. She tells the story of how she came to be the “one and only” fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar, and later her memorable move to Vogue. While Diana was known for her attention to detail when it came to clothes and style, she also gave great importance to faces and bodies. She loved movement and shares her opinions in the film of how clothes should be worn and whom should be wearing them. Diana favored models and often looked to cast those with personality. In fact, it was Diana who was responsible for launching the careers of just about every major model we know today, including Twiggy, Veruschka, Lauren Hutton and Marisa Berenson.
From Mrs. Vreeland’s incredible one liners, to the major model interviews and impossible life stories, this movie is an absolute must-see! You will laugh, you will cry, and you will leave the theaters feeling inspired to be the kind of fashionista that Diana Vreeland would approve of!
