“Vreeland . . . spotted, attracted, and showcasedthe most talented designers, photographers, illustrators, models, and fashionicons and gave their genius a glamorous theater. This book is a beautifultribute to her.” —Diane Von Furstenberg

“Eleanor Dwight's great achievement is. . .  anuanced portrait of a twentieth-century woman, socially liberated andintellectually unfettered, a modern careerist who never shed her Edwardianproprieties, a woman in full.” —Harold Koda, directorof the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Eleanor Dwightdelivers the definitive biography of Diana Vreeland, the twentieth century’smost influential fashion editor. Lavishly illustrated with exclusivephotographs and personal materials from the legendary style maker's privatecollection, and featuring a new preface from Vogue’s André LeonTalley, Diana Vreeland is an indispensible look at a grand dame of greatcouture.
