In the tradition of Valintino: The Last Emperor and The September issue, another documentary to speak to the vision of a fashion icon. Vreeland is more fascinating because she is not a fashioninista. Today she would have been an anthropologist or a circus ring master. She was someone who was interested in ideas and telling stories. Fashion became the lens she used to focus on the wider world. The movie makes or a flamboyant, Auntie Mame-equse, flight through her world.
