"From the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue, Diana Vreeland, comes this collection of work by some of the century's greatest photographers. Among them, Horst, De Meyer, Avedon, Beaton, Penn, and Steichen, as well as the work of the paparazzi to give shape to the culture of an era, and some of the celebrated personalities who left their imprint on it. Garbo, Nureyev, Callas, Queen Mary, Duchess of Windsor, and Josephine Baker are just a few of the luminaries whose presences in this book help define Diana Vreeland's concept of allure. As fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar, editor in chief of Vogue and creator of dozens of famous exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, Diana Vreeland energized and inspired the world of fashion for 50 years. She died in 1989. Tight, clean copy."
