Lady in red


One of the greatest fashion impresarios of the 20th century was Diana Vreeland – editor-in-chief of Vogue from 1962 to 1971 – a larger-than-life arbiter of style, famous for aphorisms such as “pink is the navy blue of India”.

The woman with the craggy features and blue-black hair, known for her love of red lacquer and leopard-print, transformed the pages of the magazine with exotic spreads drawing together people and designers she admired.

A special screening of an acclaimed new biopic about her, The Eye Has To Travel, will take place tomorrow, at the Lighthouse Cinema in Dublin’s Smithfield at 3pm as part of the Dublin Fashion Festival, in association with Moet Chandon.

Ten readers of The Irish Times and their friends have a chance to win tickets to this exclusive event on a first-come, first-served basis by emailing with The Eye Has to Travel in the subject line.
