Plot Summary

Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel is an intimate portrait and a vibrant celebration of one of the most influential women of the 20th century, an enduring icon whose influence changed the face of fashion, beauty, art, publishing and culture forever. During her fifty year reign as the "Empress of Fashion", she launched Twiggy, advised Jackie O and coined some of fashion's most eloquent proverbs such as "the bikini is the biggest thing since the atom bomb". She was the fashion editor of Harper’'s Bazaar where she worked for 25 years before becoming editor-in-chief of Vogue followed by a remarkable stint at the Met'’s Costume Institute where she helped popularize its historical collections.

A film for fashion lovers and friends alike. Makes Anna Wintour and The September Issue look like a musty old rag. A triumph!

Beautiful, Fascinating, Relatable

I had heard of Diana Vreeland, but never really knew who she was. This film captures spirit of fashion, fantasy, art, culture, and how Vreeland became a pioneer by combining the best of all the arts, and constantly pushing new ideas of beauty. Even though every word she utters exudes luxury, she's also extremely down-to-earth and honest. A perfectionist who also admits her weak spots and sensitivities. She's a normal person who was abnormally fearless about voicing her ideas and breaking free from all things 'boring.' I can easily see now that her entire spirit still resonates still today throughout the fashion world.


Tedious -- some good footage, but the dubbing of the voices was disconcerting. I'm sure there is more live footage of Diana Vreeland which makes one wonder at the extent of the research.
