About the Author

Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) was hired as a columnist at Harper's Bazaar by Carmel Snow in 1932. From 1936 to 1962, she was the magazine's Fashion Editor. Following Bazaar, Vreeland was the editor in chief of Vogue from 1963 to 1971, and later worked at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Alexander Vreeland is the grandson of Diana Vreeland and the president of the Diana Vreeland Estate. He is the author of Diana Vreeland Memos (Rizzoli, 2013).


"Featuring every magazine cover under her direction, the book also presents a selection of editorial features that best illustrate her visionary perspective and creative collaborations with industry veterans."

"Dive into the three decades Diana Vreeland spent at Harper's Bazaar and marvel at her matchless expertise and distinct view within the fashion industry."

"If you've ever wanted to peer into the mindset of a creative visionary at the helm of a major publication, this book offers just that. Featuring every issue of Harpers Bazaar under her keen eye, this lovely book gives us a closer look at Vreeland's influence over the magazine and a visual history of her celebrated editorial eye."

"What raises [Diana Vreeland: Modern Woman] above the rest is that it replicates the actual pages laid out by Vreeland, as seen in Harper's each month from the '30s to the '60s. They elevate the book to the level of visual primer: a 'how to' for stylists, photographers, models and, above all, art directors. . . As this book shows, Vreeland knew more about the value of white space and the pithy epithet than any other editor of her time."

"This is a must have, must read, must see book that can only delight those who revel in fashion. Alexander Vreeland reminds us all that his grandmother was indeed the high priestess of fashion. Thank you for this great souvenir and recollection of just how astoundingly and fashionably brilliant she was!"
