Even though I'm really not a very "fashion-conscious" fellow (as a lot of other people certainly seem to be) - I was still quite impressed with this first-rate bio-documentary that focuses in on the life and times of the "Empress of Fashion", Diana Vreeland.

Back in the mid-20th century (spanning the years from 1940-1970) - Diana Vreeland was not only credited for her vast influence on the ever-changing face of women's fashions - But, she was also noted for being the trusted fashion-adviser to such high-profile women as Jacqueline Kennedy.

All-in-all - "The Eye Has To Travel" is the sort of presentation that is sure to appeal to a wide range of viewers (whether they are women, men, or trans).

This first-rate "Diana Vreeland" bio-documentary certainly proved to be an excellent review of women's fashion trends from the 1940s through to the 1970s.

"The Eye Has To Travel" was impressively produced and directed by Diana's granddaughter-in-law, Lisa Immordino Vreeland.

Through dozens of stills, archival footage, and interviews - This insightful presentation paints a very intimate portrait of Diana Vreeland who (in the world of fashion) is widely considered to be one of the most influential American women of the 20th century.

(*Note*) - In 1989 - Diana Vreeland (85 at the time) died of a heart attack.

It's amazing how much information they managed to stuff into almost 90 minutes. While those with interests in fashion will obviously appreciate this, the viewer who is interested in cultural history of her time period (1920s to 90s) will get a tremendous amount out of the interviews. There was nothing boring about this even when they were discussing subjects I'm not normally interested in.

"A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste - it's hearty, it's healthy, it's physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I'm against."
