Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel is a documentary about icon of fabulousness Vreeland. A woman who truly understood the life-enhancing powers of style and fashion, Vreeland was stylish from birth: born in Paris during the Belle Epoque, she had a nursemaid named Pink, saw Diaghilev dance in her childhood living room, and as a teen, rode horses with Buffalo Bill. A fashion editor for over 40 years (first at Harper's Bazaar, then at Vogue), she discovered Lauren Bacall and Twiggy, gave fashion advice to Jackie Kennedy, and exerted such a great cultural impact, she inspired the fashion editrix character in the 1957 Audrey Hepburn musical Funny Face. In 1972, at age 70, she began a new career as a special consultant at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, creating multisensory shows that revolutionized costume exhibition. Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, the icon's granddaughter-in-law, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel features interviews with such style luminaries as Anjelica Huston, Anna Sui, Manolo Blahnik, Lauren Hutton, and Diane von Furstenberg. See how the fiercely stylish woman who declared, "The bikini is the most important thing since the atom bomb" helped define the 20th century.
