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.

Diana met the love of her life, Drew Vreeland, and their had two sons, Frederick and Tim, who tell us with some angst that she was not a good mother. She realized she needed to work and with her style and joy of life, she had two influential magazine jobs: first becoming fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar, then editor-in-chief at Vogue. Diana's time at these magazines were filled with brilliance and inventiveness. Models like Verushka to photographers like David Bailey and designers Manolo Blahnik, discuss her influence, then continue with colorful accounts of her life. Throughout the film we see hints of a demanding, unpleasant Diana told from actress Ali McGraw. Diana was excessive in the money she spent, and she was eventually let go.
Diana did not stay unemployed for long. She was hired to reimagine the costumes at the Metropolitan Museum. Thus became a very huge success, and as we can see, that continues through this day. Not much of Diana's personal life is discuss, but we are told she was unemotional, and that came from her sons. Certainly a woman if her time, but not at home.

I was hoping to give it as Christmas gifts, but they are not releasing it until February... which is too bad because this would have made wonderful stocking stuffers (Chanel stockings, of course!)
watch. The importance of this film is it lets the viewer experience those decades which transition into these modern times...
She was unique, inspirational and inspired. She inspired those around her and her point of view changed how we see things to
this very day.
