Format: Paperback
D.V. is a whitty, funny, easy book that is must have for any fashion victim. I suggest you buy one copy for yourself and a couple for your best friends as well. They won't last. Bring your copy on your next Mediterranean clipper cruise. To me this book is Audrey Hepburn meets Aunty Mame. It is fast and energetic, won't keep much of your time but you will get addicted to every page.

Format: Paperback
Diana Vreeland is one the most wonderfully inventive and creative people to have ever hit the fashion world. Her power is found in her ability to make the ordinary into the extraordinary - she coloured the lives of so many people and this book only exemplifies that. When asked if this book was fact or fiction she replied 'faction'. Who cares - it is still one of the most inspiring books ever, along with all the Clueless books

One of the most enjoyable books I've ever read and re-read and re-read...It's full of great stories, anecdotes and is sure to help you define your own sense of style. Vreeland is a wonderful storyteller and her life truly inspires.

I loved reading this book- what a character she was! While reading is like you have her just there in front of you telling you the stories. Very funny and interesting.
