Chez Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland était une grande dame du monde de la mode qui s'est éteinte en 1989. 
Rédactrice en chef du Harper's Bazaar dès l'âge de 33 ans (de 1936 à 1962) puis du 
Vogue US de 1962 à 1971, elle a su s'imposer comme une des grandes prêtresse de la 
mode au XXème siècle. Pour elle, pas de bon ni de mauvais goût, pas de laid ni de beau. 
Seulement du style et de l'originalité. Son appartement en est la preuve !

"Without emotion there is no beauty."

"All my life I've pursued the perfect red."
Her Park Avenue, NY sitting room designed by Billy Baldwin
"I wanted it to look like a garden. A garden in hell."


"The only real elegance is in the mind; if you've got that, 
the rest really comes from it."
"Too much good taste can be boring."
"Elegance is innate. It has nothing to do with being well dressed."
"I always wear my sweater back-to-front; it is so much more flattering."
"Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola."
"I think your imagination is your reality."
"Style - All who have it share one thing : originality."
"I'm a great believer in vulgarity - if it's got vitality.
A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika.
We all need a splash of bad taste
- it's hearty it's healthy, it's physical.
I think we could use more of it.
NO taste is what I'm against."
