Sinopse

Diana Vreeland was the fashion editor of the twentieth century. She had an incredible aura of glamour and a genius for enlivening life with enticing fantasy. Diana Vreeland goes behind the scenes to tell her story?how, with innate talent and hard work, the imaginative and ambitious daughter of an old New York society family became a legendary arbiter of fashion and style. It reveals the growth of her professional prowess and details her personal history, as it captures Vreeland's pizzazz, humor, flair, and flamboyance.
