We’ve focused on some heavy hitters over the last month of women’s biographies from great rulers with mythic stature to a feminist icon is just mythic. So we thought this week on #FridayReads let’s go with someone who creates fantasies and suggest Diana Vreeland’s autobiography DV.
A mesmerizing autobiography of one of the 20th century’s greatest fashion icons, Diana Vreeland, the one-time fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue, whose incomparable style-sense, genius, and flair helped define the world of fashion for fifty years.
And even if fashion isn’t really your thing (heck at Stowaway our team focuses on how to make beauty easier so we get it) this gripping read shows how one impressive woman led her life with style and verve. Real Simple calls it a “gem of an autobiography… The book is filled with dazzling stories of style, society and success. Plus, poignant life lessons we can all learn from–even if most of us aren’t decked out in Prada.” If you like disciplined, brilliant, iconic women and writing with flare you will enjoy this quick enjoyable read and come out a more informed (potentially even stylish) woman because of it
