Diana Vreeland: Bon Mots - Words of Wisdom from the Empress of Fashion

Author(s): Luke Edward Hall (Illustrator); Alexander Vreeland (Editor)

Fashion | New Art & Design

Diana Vreeland's insightful edicts and evocative aphorisms remain her strongest legacy. She looked at life as a romantic and lived through dreams and imagination. Showing leadership, vision, and timeless wit, this book celebrates her visionary words that not only transformed the world of fashion, but also gave us sage advice to live by. Sourced and edited by her grandson Alexander, Diana Vreeland: Bon Mots covers Vreeland's incisive views of subjects such as allure, fashion, and style ("I mean, a new dress doesn't get you anywhere; it's the life you're living in the dress"); beauty ("The neck is the beginning and end of looking like anybody"); age ("The quickest way to show your age is to try to look young"); colour ("Black is the hardest colour to get right - except for gray"); and her powerfully creative way of thinking ("I'm looking for the suggestion of something I've never seen") Brought to life by illustrator Luke Edward Hall, Bon Mots vividly displays Mrs. Vreeland's original thought and speech, which is equally as inspiring and relevant now as it was then.
