Diana Vreeland‘s influence on fashion knows no bounds. As the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue from 1962-1971, she was the Anna well before Anna was Anna Wintour. Vreeland’s character was far more whimsical, though her words equally sturdy, and her vision exactly spot on every time. It takes an all-knowing woman to advise Manolo Blahnik to start making shoes.
