Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel by Lisa Immordino Vreeland and Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt, 2011 (PG-13)

with Diana Vreeland, Richard Avedon, Lauren Bacall, Marisa Berenson, Pierre Bergé, David Bailey, Lillian Bassman, Hubert de Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Anjelica Huston, Calvin Klein

This intimate and loving portrait of the legendary arbiter of fashion, art and culture illustrates the many stages of Vreeland's remarkable life. Born in Paris in 1903, she was to become New York's "Empress of Fashion" and a celebrated Vogue editor.

This documentary is fascinating, although I wished I had seen more of the work she did, instead of passing on them so fast (92 minutes). Vreeland definitely has lived quite a life, traveled and created the way we look at fashion. She was unusual, her sense of storytelling was quite distorted, embellish, which allows us to understand how she had a different vision, and when starting to express it, how it became all what she did, for us to enjoy.
