“An evening with D.V. is almost as marvelous as an evening with D.V. [herself]—same magic, same spontaneity and, above all, never a boring moment.”
D.V. is the mesmerizing autobiography of one of the 20th century’s greatest fashion icons, Diana Vreeland, the one-time fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue, whose incomparable style-sense, genius, and flair helped define the world of haute couture for fifty years. The incomparable D.V. proves herself a brilliant raconteur as she carries the reader along on her whirlwind life—from English palaces to the nightclubs of Paris in the 1930s to the heart of New York high society, hobnobbing with everyone who was anyone, from Queen Mary to Clark Gable to Coco Chanel.
“Gem of an autobiography… The book is filled with dazzling stories of style, society and success. Plus, poignant life lessons we can all learn from--even if most of us aren’t decked out in Prada.”
“This title is the best possibility to “meet” the legendary icon of American fashion. It’s not a long book, which makes it the perfect beach read this summer. Your personal style will thank you!”
