Excellent coffee book that goes along with the documentary of the same name. I can not get enough of Diana Vreeland and her amazing life. The pictures in this book reflect her times at Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. A great nostalgic look at some of her most famous fashion spreads. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves fashion history. I truly believe that Vreeland understood the ridiculousness and sublime aspect of the fashion world without ever taking it serious.

For those new to the story of Diana Vreeland, this is a great way in. It's not a full bio, just a reflection on her years working for Harpers Bazaar, Vogue and the Met Costume Institute with tons of photos. Basically an overview of her years working in visual design and inventing the job of magazine editor. It's one-sided as hell but that's OK for a book of this type.

A lovely (mainly pictorial) tribute to Diana Vreeland. The large format makes it difficult to read on the go, but it is the only way to give justice to the photos.

Beautiful. Great tribute to Ms. Vreeland.
So much to know, so little time!

I read this after loving the documentary. I don't think it adds anything if you've already seen the documentary unless you absolutely need to know everything about Diana Vreeland.

I liked reading about her business career and how she grew as a bossy creative person.

The title is the best part, unless you love Fashion shoots circa the 70's.

Great coffee table book. But D.V. is a much better story.
