Storyline

For decades, Diana Vreeland was one of the leading authorities in fashion through eccentric self-taught skill and a bold stylistic audacity. This film guides you through this fashion pioneer's long career from her youth in Paris until she became a leading magazine fashion columnist and editor. In this medium, Vreeland challenged its preconceptions to present a new definition of beauty and vivaciousness where nice clothes were just the beginning for something deeper. Even when that vocation ended, Vreeland managed to gain a new museum profession to present clothing's history in her own inimitable way. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

A Film About An Extraordinary Woman
15 December 2013 | by (Paradise, California) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this well written and produced documentary about the fabulous fashion editor Diana Vreeland. This documentary is full of hundreds and hundreds of photographs, snippets of historical film, interviews with top fashion figures discussing Mrs. Vreeland and interviews with the lady herself. I was keenly interested in everything she had to say. The truth is that designers and fashion editors are following and copying her ideas and sense of fashion to this day. A fascinating person with an incredible life and work ethic, Mrs. Vreeland is definitely worth listening to if you want to move forward in your job in a related field. I gave this film ten stars because it held my interest throughout and did an admirable job of telling the story of this intelligent and talented lady.
