Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel

Guess who The Movie Slut met at a New York screening of this fascinating doc about one of history's most stylish chicks — ever.

Tim Gunn! Yes, Project Runway's own fashion guru!

And he loved this film.

DV is for fashionistas and if you're one of the chic set, and MS sincerely hopes you are, you will be in heaven at the multiplex.

Brought to us by the fashion doyenne's great-granddaughter-in-law, the film is brimming with photos and videos from Vreeland's days at Harper's Bazaar, Vogue magazine and the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

You'll also hear from Angelica Huston, Ali McGraw, Calivin Klein, Carolina Herrera, the Missoni family and the great photogs of her day. Vreeland passed away in 1989, but her influence on fashion will never die.

Who could forget her bon mots, including: "Pink is the navy blue of India," and "Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola."
