9780500516812: Diana Vreeland: Empress of Fashion

As an editor, curator and wit, Diana Vreeland made a lasting mark and remains an icon for generations of fashion lovers. During her fifty-year reign as the "Empress of Fashion", she launched Twiggy, advised Jackie O and coined some of fashions 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, the first full-length biography of Vreeland, Amanda Mackenzie Stuart portrays a visionary: a fearless innovator who inspired designers, models, photographers and artists, and who reinvented the way we think about style and where we go to think about it.

Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month, December 2012: In several ways, Empress of Fashion is much like the woman it covers. Like Diana Vreeland (1903–1989)--the imperious, transformative editor of Vogue magazine, then the creator of the Costume Institute at New York’s Metropolitan Museum--British journalist Amanda Mackenzie Stuart’s biography lasts a long time. And while it isn’t always traditionally well formed, it is far deeper, smarter, and more important than it first appears. Who was Diana Vreeland? An arbiter of beauty who, by just about everyone’s admission, was not beautiful; a working woman before it was fashionable; a fiercely independent soul with an overriding, lifelong, bourgeois concern about money. And while Mackenzie Stuart might tread a tiny bit too heavily into the Freudian--Vreeland constantly tried to prove herself to her neglectful and often nasty mother, even years after the older woman's death--her deep research into everything from Vreeland’s childhood diaries to her social life (shimmying at Studio 54 in her 80s!) makes this bio, which has the approval of Vreeland’s estate, nothing short of--as Mrs. Vreeland herself might say--“divine.” --Sara Nelson

From the Back Cover:

Vreeland personified twentieth-century American couture and helped transform modern culture. As the innovative fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue during the tumultuous 1960s, she redefined women's sense of beauty and style, provoking and challenging accepted ideas in the fashion world and leaving a legacy that resonates today. From Seventh Avenue to leopard print scarves to her red lacquered office, Diana (pronounced DEE-ana, as she demanded) made American fashion relevant. She launched the careers of such luminous beauties as Lauren Bacall, Penelope Tree, and Lauren Hutton, and she knew everyone, including Coco Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Salvador Dali, Swifty Lazar, Truman Capote, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, the Kennedys, Andy Warhol, Jack Nicholson, and Mick Jagger. Nearly twenty-five years after her death, this icon of style's influence is more prevalent than ever.
