Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel

October 1, 2012 Art & Culture


Last weekend I had a chance to check out Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, the much anticipated documentary on legendary fashion icon Diana Vreeland. Directed by her granddaughter-in-law, Lisa Immordino Vreelandthe film is a brilliant portrait of a kooky, eccentric and often hilarious woman who lived a fabulous life filled with celebrity friends and, of course, fashion. Vreeland spent 25 years as the fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar before becoming editor-in-chief of Vogue in 1962.  As an editor Vreeland was far ahead of her time in terms of trends and she pushed the boundaries of fashion, conceptualizing fantasy-like shoots that took readers on a journey.  Her creativity inspired a fashion revolution that influenced the way women around America dressed. After her tenure at Vogue Vreeland took on a role as special consultant to the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she oversaw its special exhibitions, turning clothes into art and showcasing fashion in a way that it had never been seen before. Vreeland was a true visionary and is credited with transforming the Costume Institute into the widely celebrated attraction that it is today. This documentary is a must-see for fashion lovers and I highly recommend seeing it if you have the chance! You can click here to find out where the film is playing in your area and also watch the trailer below for a sneak peek!

“Give them what they don’t know they want yet” My kind of woman! I don’t go to the movies much, but this one I’ll be going to see if it’s in Dallas otherwise. I’ll have to wait for DVD

I just saw this last night… I have to say, I didnt think the movie lived up to HER. It was good though. But not spectacular?
