Diana Vreeland Goddess Huntress

Diana Vreeland Goddess Huntress

“Red is the great clarifier – bright, cleansing, revealing. It makes all colors beautiful. I can’t imagine being bored with it – it would be like becoming tired of the person you love. I wanted this apartment to be a garden – but it had to be a garden in hell.”
– Diana Vreeland

“There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.”  -Diana Vreeland


I just saw the most delightful, stimulating, hypnotic tryst in pure fashion fantasy!  Diana Vreeland may not be a name for most of you youngster’s but everyone should know a true rebel innovator.  This film the new documentary ‘The Eye Has to Travel’ is a celebration of what  one women did in her pure vision while staying true to her own sense of style and desire.




Where do you begin with telling a story of a woman who celebrated Barbara Streisand’s Nefertiti’s nose, Lauren Hutton’s gab between her teeth discovered blue jeans, Lauren Bacall and Mick Jagger.  Diane Vreeland also was delighted with vulgarity as much as she adored telling a story.

“I am extremely disappointed to see that we have used practically no pearls at all in the past few issues. In fact, many necklines could have been helped by pearls worn inside the dress that show inside the cutaway sides and back of most ordinary dresses on top.
I speak of this very often – and as soon as I stop speaking the pearls disappear.
Nothing gives the luxury of pearls. Please keep that in mind.” -Diana Vreeland

The film starts off with Diana explaining how she came into a fabulous life  as she says in a lingering sultry voice “One must arrange to born in Paris!”  Her illumination of fact and fiction are blurred however it is a lifestyle choice Vreeland in unapologetic for.

One of the most innovative approaches to business was quite stern.  We see the beginning of an arch where Anna Wintour is a decedent but not queen.  “I loved it!  I was so mad about working!” was her response when she shared going into the workforce for the first time at age 35.

“I think part of my success as an editor came from never worrying about a fact, a cause, an atmosphere. It was me – projecting to the public. That was my job. I think I always had a perfectly clear view of what was possible for the public. Give ’em what they never knew they wanted.” -Diana Vreeland

Diana ruled without being particularly wealthy or a traditional beauty, (personally I think she was stunning!) she turned her circumstances into what it should be and never wavered.

“Vulgarity is a very important ingredient in life. I’m a great believer in vulgarity- if it’s got vitality. A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste- it’s hearty, it’s healthy, it’s physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I’m against.” -Diana Vreeland

What I admired the most is that she was the goddess of second chances and second second chances and so forth.  Could you imagine being the editor for Harper’s Bazaar then Vogue only to be let go?  Finally taking a position at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to change the landscape of an old museum.  Diana rocked NYC with legendary exhibits, galas and events that young Hollywood and Andy Warhol would attend.  She created in a very elaborate theatrical imaginary way of what history should be but not what was.


“Fashion is part of the daily air and it changes all the time, with all the events. You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes. You can see and feel everything in clothes.”-Diana Vreeland

Changing your story, visioning what’s yours, taking on the impossible is not a new concept for women in business.  We do it everyday.  I admire this spirit about all my ladies that read this blog the most and I adore the men that stand by them.

“I don’t start over. You see, I just go on from one thing to the other. They’re all really the same.” -Diana Vreeland
