The originator of both the Twiggy phenomenon and such eminently quotable fashion proverbs as 'Pink is the navy blue of India'. Diana Vreeland reigned as queen of the fashion world over fifty years. As fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and editor in chief of Vogue, she was obsessed with fashion high and low and used the pages of the magazine to bring her love of the bizarre and the absurd to her audience. She also created dozens of famous exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's costume Institute. In this glittering autobiography we see 'D.V.' giving Jack Nicholson a black plaster in the lobby of a London restaurant, asserting that all her plump friends had gotten 'champagne chins', and being feted by Coco Chanel in her Paris home. She tells tales of the Prince Wales and Clark Gables, Jackei O. and Buffalo Bill.
