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 “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel,” directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, the wife of one of Vreeland’s grandsons.

As the “Empress of Fashion” who was the fashion editor of “Harper’s Bazaar” before editing “Vogue” 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.)
