Description de l'ouvrage

19 avril 2011

“An evening with D.V. is almost as marvelous as an evening with D.V. [herself]—same magic, same spontaneity and, above all, never a boring moment.”
—Bill Blass

D.V. is the mesmerizing autobiography of one of the 20th century’s greatest fashion icons, Diana Vreeland, the one-time fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue, whose incomparable style-sense, genius, and flair helped define the world of haute couture for fifty years. The incomparable D.V. proves herself a brilliant raconteur as she carries the reader along on her whirlwind life—from English palaces to the nightclubs of Paris in the 1930s to the heart of New York high society, hobnobbing with everyone who was anyone, from Queen Mary to Clark Gable to Coco Chanel.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Gem of an autobiography… The book is filled with dazzling stories of style, society and success. Plus, poignant life lessons we can all learn from--even if most of us aren’t decked out in Prada.” (Real Simple)

“This title is the best possibility to “meet” the legendary icon of American fashion. It’s not a long book, which makes it the perfect beach read this summer. Your personal style will thank you!” (The Fashion List)

Quatrième de couverture

Brilliant, funny, charming, imperious, Diana Vreeland—the fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue—was a woman whose passion and genius for style helped define the world of high fashion for fifty years. Among her eclectic circle of friends were some of the most renowned and famous figures of the twentieth century—artists and princes, movie stars and international legends, including Chanel, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Isak Dinesen, Clark Gable, and Swifty Lazar.

Moving from English palaces to the nightclubs of 1930s Paris, the wilds of Wyoming to the exclusive venues of New York high society, D.V. takes readers into this iconic woman's dazzling life, evoking the luxury and brio of an era that encompassed Josephine Baker, England's Queen Mary, Buffalo Bill, and Diaghilev.

Vibrant with the vivid, irresistible voice that elevated every tête-à-tête and dinner party, D.V. brings this renowned and uninhibited raconteur alive, whether recalling herself as a young girl, her search for the perfect red, her piquant observations about her world, or her abhorrence for nostalgia. Like her legacy, Vreeland's story, told in her own words, is a classic to be celebrated by both loyal admirers and a new generation of culture mavens and style savants.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Sans intérêt et décevant. 12 février 2013
Par Lebeau
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Cette dame s'extasie sur tout. Au début c'est rafraîchissant, mais au fil des pages tout ce rose bubble gum vous donne l'impression d'évoluer chez les bisounours. Ce manque de retenue n'est pas à son honneur : elle apparaît comme idiote. Très peu de pages sur son métier contrairement à ce qu'annonce l'éditeur.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Divine Diana Vreeland 12 janvier 2012
Par Haute Literati - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Diana's voice as a great raconteur comes across the page and hits you in the face. You can hear her rhapsodize every word even though it is just written on paper. The book is in her voice. I believe she dictated the stories that were written to a typist as she spoke. It is slightly difficult to follow but that is what makes it unique. You feel as though Diana is at your dinner table, as she jumps from story to story, anecdote to anecdote. This book does not go into detail over Diana's life there are just little bits of information sprinkled lightly into the text like a light mist. She leaves you with a collection of her over the top stories rather than her autobiography. Why bore you with life when she can wow you with a tale.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Delightful! 18 février 2012
Par Raymond A. Souza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This must be a transcription of conversations, no, monologues, she participated in over a period of time. She describes her life and times in the most incoherent way, floating through the 20th century on a cloud of insane priorities but always winding up having done the right thing. The story is amazing, but more importantly, the book is a joy! I went from the last chapter right back to the first. "Violet, now that's a color!"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE Grand Dame 10 octobre 2012
Par Suzinne Barrett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Just recently searched out my original paperback (dating back to 1985 after viewing the delightful documentary "The Eye Has to Travel." Diana Vreeland was a visionary when it came to the world of fashion magazines. Her influence started at Harper's Bazaar and reached its crest during her much heralded reign - domination might be more accurate - at Vogue. Admittedly, D.V.'s style is not to everyone's liking, but I've found, and have continued to find, her personal opinions and perspective totally intoxicating and revelatory. This book is basically one long monologue that was the culmination of a series of interviews with George Plimpton. Mr. Plimpton was a master at channeling the oral into the written form. (For reference, check out Jean Stein and Mr. Plimpton's highly recommended oral biography of Edie Sedgwick, "Edie: An American Biography"). Putting all veracity aside, D.V.'s tales (some quite tall) will grab you firmly by the head and send it into one delicious spin!

Diana Vreeland was loud and sometimes vulgar, all the while being very colorful and enthusiastic. Or let's say Diana Vreeland was a lot of things, but one thing she never was: boring. High camp and quite entertaining.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 a busy and fashionable and exciting life... 26 octobre 2013
Par eliza hamilton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Diana Vreeland had an extraordinary life and career. Born in Paris, she married an American banker with whom she traveled in America, Europe, and North Africa. She was always interested in people, fashion, and interiors. In 1937 she was invited to join the staff of Harper's Bazaar, where she remained for more than twenty years, and then joined Vogue. After only a few years with Vogue she became a consultant to the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she curated numerous exhibitions about fashion and costume. By then she had long been a legend in her own time, intimate with many celebrities and a "maker" of celebrities herself. And what a character! She was truly one of the doyennes of fashion in America. With her vast experience of life she did not become a writer, and her little book of reminiscences is chatty and full of intimacy, but she was helped along with it by a couple of pros, George Plimpton and Christopher Hemphill. Vaguely chronological, it relates many of her life experiences, one after another. It is not the writing that is good, or the style; it is the variety of experience and the many people and places in her life that give the book its flavor. It is all slightly chaotic, but makes for amusing reading. The point of the little book seems to be to showcase her dramatic and fantastic personality.

I am 99% sure that most of this is complete fabrication (polishing the soles of your shoes?) but I don't care. Diana Vreeland was a fashion icon who literally changed the way that fashion was done. From putting ethnic models on the pages of Vogue to championing designers who would become legends, she is responsible for the way fashion is reported today. This book is not only a must-have for lovers of fashion, it's the best ride since "Auntie Mame."
