Mercurial fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar then Vogue, Diana Vreeland invented herself, and then reinvented fashion. She narrates her own story (via a series of autobiographical taped interviews with George Plimpton), which are accompanied by wildly entertaining glimpses of mid-century fashion and culture. Directed by her granddaughter in law, Lisa Immordino Vreeland (who never met her), this 2012 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival hit spins breathlessly through her debut in the 1930s with her quirky "Why Don't You..." columns ("Why don't you...wear violet velvet mittens with everything?") through her tenure at Vogue during the Swinging '60s where she produced legendary images of trend-setting models like Twiggy and Veruschka. One quibble: no interviews with her protégé, current Vogue Contributing Editor André Leon Talley, formerly of Durham, N.C.
