Award-winning author of the first full-length biography of Diana Vreeland, Amanda Mackenzie Stewart talks about a force majeure who inspired loyalty and admiration and aroused fear and criticism in the fashion world.

Cruelly rejected by her mother for not being as beautiful as her younger sister, Diana proved resilient, and harnessed her imagination to develop a persona that dazzled all who met her. Under her watch the magazine Vogue showcased fashion and art, high and low culture, creativity and rampant materialism. This event reveals how she became one of the most influential women of the 20th century.
