Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel: movie review
The documentary shows a fashion editor who was a true original in a world of knock-offs.
The late Diana Vreeland is the subject of the fawning but fascinating documentary â€śDiana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel,â€ť directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, the wife of one of Vreelandâ€™s grandsons.
As the â€śEmpress of Fashionâ€ť who was the fashion editor of â€śHarperâ€™s Bazaarâ€ť before editing â€śVogueâ€ť in its 1960s heyday, Vreeland comes across in the movie as something of a cross between Auntie Mame and Godzilla. She was a true original in a world where knock-offs abounded. Grade: B (Rated PG-13 for some nude images.)
