Diana Vreeland : The Eye Has To Travel

Last week I attended a special screening of the Diana Vreeland film "The Eye Has To Travel".

The screening was at the invitation of Kellogg's to celebrate the launch of their new Special K Cracker Crisps*.

A socialite and fashionista, Diana Vreeland was the editor of Harper's Bazaar from 1937-1962, editor of Vogue 1962-71 and consultant to the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art from 1971 onwards.

Directed by her grandson's wife, the film is beautifully made and visually stunning, her life story is totally fascinating. With contributions from Diane con Furstenberg, Angelica Huston, Manolo Blahnik, Calvin Klein, David Bailey and Veruschka plus her two very handsome sons Frecky & Tim, it is a fascinating, revealing and very honest insight into what can only be described as her quite extraordinary life and her legacy to the fashion world.

She remains, arguably, the most influential and inspirational fashion editor there has ever been, changing the face of fashion and publishing forever.

As well as plenty of anecdotes from those who knew her, there are many quotes taken from interviews on tapes with Diana herself. Her descriptions of Paris, London and New York throughout the early twentieth century in particular are riveting, it's a fabulous look at the history of those times.

I was absolutely spellbound - the second it finished, I wanted to shout "rewind" and watch the whole thing all over again!!

Please go and see it, it truly is a feast for the eyes....

    * Special K Cracker Crisps are a new savoury snack from Kellogg's, just 95 calories - available in individual packets or a box ideal for sharing. 
Three great flavours - sea salt & balsamic vinegar, sweet chilli and sour cream & chive.
Now available in all major supermarkets.

I can honestly say that these were very tasty indeed - and I don't eat lots of crisps. 
The fact that they are baked gives them a lovely non-greasy flavour, we thoroughly enjoyed them :)


  1. I would love to see this but it appears it is only being shown in one cinema in the UK, Curzon Street in London and I live in Manchester! How can this be?

  2. Isn't that crazy Debra? I did see it at the Curzon in London, what a shame that it's not on at more cinemas.....the whole film itself was such a treat. So wonderful too to see such a string & inspiring woman.

  3. It sounds like a fascinating movie - I will look out for it! xxoo

  4. I guess I will have to wait for the DVD but would have loved to see it on the big screen. If I remember rightly the Lagerfeld confidential film was the same but I managed to wangle a trip to london to see that.
    I hate how so much is London centric in the UK, it is so frustrating sometimes.

  5. I must see this ! Diana Vreeland is such an icon! I hope I can find it!
