The first lady of fashion

Before Anna Wintour started her reign at Vogue, Diana Vreeland was the queen of the fashion industry, and as she self-proclaimed, “the one and only fashion editor.” She started the career of supermodel Twiggy, advised first lady Jackie Kennedy, and celebrated the “flaws” of the models and celebrities she featured in Vogue — like Barbra Streisand’s nose — making their imperfections the most beautiful thing about them.

The first documentary about her life, The Eye Has to Travel, follows her career, which began at Harper’s Bazaar from 1936 to 1962, followed by her leading role at American Vogue from 1962 to 1972.

"You can see the approaching revolution in clothes,” Diana said. “You can see and feel everything in clothes."
