Book Description

17 April 2003
The best-selling autobiography of this century's most formidable arbiter of elegance, Diana Vreeland.. As fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue , Diana Vreeland--and her passion, charm, insouciance, and genius for style--energized and inspired the fashion world for fifty years. In this glittering autobiography she takes us around the world with her, revealing her obsession with fashion high and low--pink plastic poodles, for example--and dropping timeless sayings like, "As you know, the French like the French very much." A fabulous, witty read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talk about charme and strong women 17 Jun 1999
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great arbitrators of fashion 14 Jan 1999
By A Customer
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

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to read and re-read and re-read! 4 May 1998
By A Customer
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.
