That Vision Thing
"Diana Vreeland was a badass," Mary Alice Stephenson told Style.com last night at the Peggy Siegal, W, and Swarovski-hosted premiere of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. "She defied the whole idea of the time, which was being a little lady staying at home and taking care of your man and doing nothing else but that. She was still a mom, a wife, and probably made one hell of a cup of coffee, but at the same time she was a total glamour girl."
Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland's ode to her grandmother-in-law, the fearless and ferociously chic former editor of Harper's Bazaar, also attracted the likes of Valentino Garavani, Brooke Shields, and Alan Cumming. Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani admitted that she never had the chance to meet Vreeland, but maybe she didn't need to. "We cannot survive our magazines, so the magazine will be the story of ourselves," she said. "I think that is the very best way to see a person." Supermodel Anja Rubik, who edits the erotic magazine 25, considered the legacy her new pub might leave. "This issue is dedicated to young female designers and incredible women who have insane influence in fashion, like Marina Abramovic," she said. "Hopefully, it will be even more sexy than the first one."
