Summary
As an editor, curator and wit, Diana Vreeland made a lasting mark and remains an icon for generations of fashion lovers. During her 50-year reign as the 'empress of fashion', she launched Twiggy, advised Jackie O and coined some of fashion's most eloquent proverbs, such as the 'bikini is the biggest thing since the atom bomb'. She aimed to instruct where possible, to delight, to give pleasure, to bring to the reader what interests her. In this book Amanda Mackenzie Stuart portrays a visionary who reinvented the way we think about style and where we go to think about it
