thought I'd give this thread a bump..

Anyone here that happens to have any Vogue issues from when she was the editor, or maybe even some Bazaar?

Here's one shot - the first page with a really long ed with Verushka and Richard Avedon. It also has great text by DV (I think it's her). Vogue 1966.

i'm sorry but "gets the credit" ?

gets the credit for what? A celebrity is famous for their movies/tv shows/ tabliod antics. A model is essentially an anonymous clotheshanger- that is what they are on the catwalk. In editorials they are a canvas, a medium for art. I can't see journalists praising the model for what is essentially their job.

I also don't think (in my pedestrian and non informed view) that Diana celebrated the model specifically. She was a tour de force who drew around her all that was bright and creative. That included photographers, nameless society girls, politians and intellectuals. -this is from reading her autobiography.

to celebrate and worship the model- that is over. Its an idealised visage of the industry, even at their height where models became celebrities- the supermodels; they were collaborators to the creation of beautiful images.

Its not exactly normal or plausable to put them on a pedestal.

on my computer for awhile - i'm pretty sure its from photo decadent.

The great editrix in her New York apartment. She wanted to recreate a "garden of hell". Her favourite colour was a deep lacquer red.

That sentence is a bit weird - why wouldn't a journalist praise someone for their work performace? Isn't that a large part of what journalism is all about?

A model's job is essentially to present clothes. The presentation of clothes get a lot of attention in several media - fashion shows, fashion magazines, the covers and in the general media. I think the argument is that non-model celebs taint the clothes by being less attractive than models and also adding the whole cheap, sadly unsightly, circus to the items they are wearing (who dates who and who does what in the restroom etc etc).

Diana's vision was remarkable - she always brought fourth people who shone from within - just like Andy Warhol did (although I guess in his case burn might be more appropriate). I guess it's all a thing of the past, really, truly beautiful celebrities.

Diana Vreeland's mother married "a man who was neither rich nor socially prominent, qualities valued in her world", but he was good looking, loved his wife and children.

Diana's mother was American and her name was: Emily Key Hoffman. She came from a well to-do family, and had great connections in the New York social scene. Diana was not fond of her mother because of her relationship towards men, however Diana inherited the good social and outgoing ways of her mother.
Moreover, Diana felt that her mother was not fond of her because of her looks, she felt her mother favored her beautiful sister. Diana grew to adore her sister and learned to live with her mother. Its said that after her mother died she never mentioned her again. Furthermore, it is said that DV grew to be comfortable with good looking people because of growing up with her sister.

These comments are based mainly on Eleanor Dwight's "Diana Vreeland".


I find that DV is amazing b/c she was an ongoing work in progress, always learning and changing but always keeping her "simplicity".
