We already discussed the tres Leo & epic She-Editor Ms Diana Vreeland here in this post about her uber scarlet apartment but now of course we will be hearing heaps more about her, a la the new doco released soon.
There is definitely a place for Grand Leo Divas in our society. It may sound shallow but someone has to care about fabulosity and being quotable – Leos are always quotable and if not, they strive for the status. Vreeland is best known for her bon mots such as “why don’t you wash your blonde child’s hair in dead champagne, like the French do?’ and “white bread is for people who have no dreams.”
But she was an enormously creative woman with a knack for discovering and nurturing talent (a trait of Haute Leos) — she also wrote poignantly and evocatively of the epically stressful times she lived through – notably, her beloved Paris under Nazi occupation.
As the Moon whizzes into Leo today, let this be a reminder that no matter what we’re going through, there is always a place for Haute Leo artistic Awesome, being intensely opinionated about Style & Art, relishing every moment of our lives.
“You gotta have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life. Without it, you’re nobody.”
This was a genius cover, right? Check the date.
