    1 thought on “Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman: The Bazaar Years, 1936-1962

    1. Gorgeous! Vreeland was the epitome of taste and nerve while at Bazaar; the magazine has never been the same since.

    2. From the title of this book I was expecting a pictorial biography of Diana Vreeland, but what I got was much better--a pictorial biography of her work at Harper's Bazaar. This book is like leafing through the best pages of the magazine under her tenure. Marvelous photography, graphic layout, etc. Just a wonderful overview of the dovetailing of creative geniuses (Vreeland, Carmel Snow, Richard Avedon, Louise Dahl Wolfe, etc.).
