As a little girl in Paris, Diana Vreeland loved to read and dance, and most of all dress up. Her love of originality persisted through her career in fashion, where her work was colorful, zany, and never, ever boring. She became a fashion icon whose dramatic, spectacular work with Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art continues to influence the fashion world today.
"Blumenthal’s Vreeland airily skims by biographical detail — the telling jumps from the figure’s youthful love of dance to becoming 'the Empress of Fashion' in a single spread. Instead, the figure’s merrily madcap worldview dominates, building to a series of dazzling quotes from her legendary column, 'Why Don’t You?' ('Have every room done up in every color green?').... It’s a winsome, if partial, introduction to a style icon who chose to 'never, ever [be] boring.'" — Publishers Weekly
