    Aaaa it’s so good! I went to a preview of it at Curzon Mayfair and loads of people in the audience cried… and Manolo Blahnik was there in a fabulous pair of aquamarine loafers! You have to watch it – you will love it, so inspirational.

    From time to time I flip through Diana Vreeland’s Allure to get some visual inspiration. It’s such a fascinating collection of imagery. I’m so glad this film came out on iTunes as I was gutted to miss it when it was playing in the cinemas.

    ‘a new dress doesn’t get you anywhere . It’s the life you live in it.’ ….to quote Mrs Vreeland! Its a portrait of a woman who inspires to think NOT like others. To imagine, dare and be different. What more can you want?

    …watched in a recent fly in AA from NYC to Barcelona

    …extraordinary!

    …reflects the time, the epoch, and paints in such wonderful brushes her character and life, her personality, her joie de vivre, her spontaneity and genius and all her influence in fashion

    I saw it in theatres in the fall, and, as Diana would say, it’s maaarvelous!

    Such an incredible documentary. Diana is my new inspiration not only for fashion but for life in general. MUST SEE.

    YES. I saw it at the TIFF Lightbox in Toronto. She’s hysterical. I wish I could have known her, had a drink with her. She defined “fab”. And what “editorial” REALLY means. What a visionary.

    yes! it was great. poignant, but
    with a sharp humored, sometimes bittersweet, but nevertheless mesmerizing twist.

    amazing how voraciously she pursued a stylish and atmospheric life…almost to the extreme & detriment of her family…which was not really a priority. she really fueled and fed her own creative appetite and always had the most clever, deflective comebacks to
    justify the methods to her genius/madness (all “much of a muchness” for any of us creatives!)

    she simply carried out her vision to galactic proportions.

    and the rest of the world is glad she did!

    Great documumentary about an icon with an eye for…….

    Wow… I actually did not think this documentary was very good! I love Diana Vreeland and have always wondered why more media doesn’t exist about her career- and it seems that the filmmakers encountered the same problem. They seem to be stretching a lot of random stock footage under the same quotes we all already know. I felt like I didn’t learn very much beyond the most common knowledge of DV’s life. Shame, because she’s led such a remarkable one. I hope someone does this again, and better.

    I really enjoyed it. She is so inspiring and beautifully dramatic and what I found most enjoyable was learning about her mark that she has made on the fashion world. The Met Costume ball is my favorite fashion event and she the one is dreamed it into existence and really gave the institute life and excitement. You will enjoy!

    It is fabulous! The book D.V. is even better, much more detail.

    The film is fantastic and so is the accompanying book! I highly recommend both.

    I agree with Maggie, above. It was good, but not great. SHE is great….the movie just didn’t do her justice.

    It’s great. I dragged my huisband along and he loved it too.

    Favourite quote: “The best thing about London is Paris.”

    Considering the “director” never met Mrs. Vreeland, it’s okay. It’s not earth shattering as a film.

    Divine! Someone who devoured life & enjoyed every bite! We should all try to do more of that!

    Vreeland was a true artistic pioneer, this is really one of the best docs around on fashion and arts. It’s an intimate project of her creative process and intellect of Diana Vreeland.

    I too enjoyed it immensely!DV has been an icon for me for many years!It was wonderful to “see” her in her element,opiniated and full of life right through the end!Though I must admit that the last 5 minutes of this film,were somewhat disappointing…like they hadn’t thought of an ending,or simply didn’t have one,pity.
