'THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL' a documentary about the Diana Vreeland-
The most influential magazine editor of the last century who inspired the fashion world for five decades, who believed she was not a fashion editor, she was one and only Fashion Editor!
Working as a fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar before becoming editor-in-chief of Vogue, followed by a remarkable stint at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, she was described as "The century’s most formidable arbiter of elegance."
Some quotes below:
“I was always fascinated by the absurdities and luxuries and the snobbism of the world that fashion magazines showed. Of course, it’s not for everyone…But I lived in that world, not only during my years in the magazines business but for years before, because I was always of that world— at least in my imagination.”
"I think your imagination is your reality"
"Without emotion there is no beauty"
"The best thing about London is Paris"
“…Don’t think you were born too late. Everyone has that illusion. But you aren’t. The only problem is if you think too late.”
"Too much good taste can be boring"
“If you think all the time every day of your life, you might as well kill yourself today and be happier tomorrow.”
“Style—all who have it share one thing: originality.”
"You gotta have style. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life. Without it you’re nobody. And I’m not talking about a lot of clothes"
"Fashion must be the intoxicating release from the banality of the world"
"The only real elegance is in the mind;
If you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it”
Such an inspirational and motivational women! Even if I do not approve all of her words or actions I believe that no one is perfect and perfect can only exist in ones eyes. Watch the movie & make your own opinion,
Good Tuesday, V xx
