Run Time: 77 minutes
"The first thing to do, my love, is to arrange to be born in Paris. After that, everything follows quite naturally." Diana Vreeland arranged for herself to be born in Paris in 1902, at the end of the Belle Époque. The smart set waltzed through her parents' drawing room, and her life went uphill from there. DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL is a marvelously entertaining look at the woman who was a fashion icon throughout most of the 20th century. As fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar, editor of American Vogue and consultant to the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, D.V. was a lifelong visionary. Told largely by Diana herself, in interviews with raconteur George Plimpton, the film incorporates reminiscences by fashion deities from the 60s and beyond. Loved by many, feared by more, Diana had an outsized personality and was known for her witty aphorisms. This movie is as gorgeous as one of her famous December issues. D.V. would have loved its pizzazz. –B.B.
