A fairly straight documentary firmly in the school of illustration by found, sometimes superfluous, footage rather than any great insight. However despite the archival raids and attention deficit editing it has a zesty interest in its subject and conveys her singularity with no little aplomb.
Diana Vreeland brought an enormous contribution to fashion but her name is unknown by the young generations.This documentary, featuring photographers, models, rock stars and celebrities (Angelica Huston, David Bailey, Marisa Berenson, etc) is giving to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. A real extravagant of her time, long before Lady Gaga. A real visionnaire, long before Anna Wintour or Grace Coddington.
