Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel review

Dubbed fashion's 'empress', Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue editor Diana Vreeland (who died in 1989) is the focus of this suitably stylish documentary.

Although co-helmed by Vreeland’s granddaughter-in-law Lisa, it strikes an even-handed balance: showing Diana’s tyrannical side (which left assistants in tears) but celebrating a true original who brought exuberance into women’s lives.

A fashion world Who’s Who offer accolades, while Vreeland’s vulnerabilities are revealed in interviews telling how, ridiculed by her socialite mother as ugly, she invented herself on her own terms.
