For decades, noted columnist and magazine editor, Diana Vreeland, lead the fashion industry with her bold stylistic taste. This film guides the audience through this fashion pioneer’s long career, from her youth in Paris to reaching the authoritative role of an editor. In this medium, Vreeland challenged its preconceptions to present a new definition of beauty and vivaciousness where nice clothes were just the beginning for something deeper. Even when that vocation ended, Vreeland managed to gain a new museum profession to present clothing’s history in her own inimitable way.
