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?
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.
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!
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.
