The world will remember the French born Diana Vreeland as a creative genius, as a larger than life visionary on all things beautiful, as a Harper's Bazaar columnist and fashion editor, as Vogue's editor-in-chief and as Metropolitan Museum of Art's consultant among other things, although I'm sure she would be described with some other adjectives by her two sons (for example detached, cold, emotionally unavailable and workaholic) but she gave her point of view (which she was always more than happy to give) on the matter in one of the following quotes. I have a slight hunch her words on parenting apply to herself as a parent as well as her own parents. And my parents and your parents and our parents' parents as some things never change. Aside from that fundamental truth, I'm sure you'll find some other life axioms bellow and attribute whichever adjectives you'll see fit to the intriguing if not interesting Diana Vreeland. But I'd like to remember her as vibrant. And colorful. And above all forever young. Because she was all that. Definitely my kind of gal.
