Amsterdam premiere of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. By Glenn Belverio


Dear Shaded Viewers,

Last night I attended the Amsterdam premiere of the superb Diana Vreeland documentary with my friends Marcelo and the artist Scott Neary. I have been working with Mrs. Vreeland’s grandson Alexander and writing some articles for the DV website, so had spoken to the film’s director, Lisa Immordino Vreeland on the phone. It was quite a pleasure to meet her in person last night and she looked great in her black Prada number. She has some charming Dutch friends who were great to talk to–the Dutch are so much easier to talk to than, for example, the annoyingly aloof French.

It was great to see the film again, it is so expertly made and such a celebration of real fashion, ’60s pop culture and imagination. Mrs. Vreeland remains my ultimate muse.


Lisa Immordino Vreeland took questions from the audience. There was one about Anna Wintour (U.S. Vogue was–surprise!–virtually the only fashion magazine in the world to NOT cover the film) but the discussion is off the record. Sorry, dolls!
