Description - Diana Vreeland by Amanda Mackenzie Stuart
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 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, 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.
