Known for her signature take the bull by the horns attitude, Mrs. Vreeland was always ready to step in and take control. One of the most famous displays of her moxie was during an editorial shoot she arranged at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West in Arizona. When one of the models fell ill and was unable to work, Mrs. Vreeland stepped in, effortlessly pulling off the shoot and proving that her talents were even more far-flung than previously thought. The result, a two-page spread shot by photographer and friend Louise Dahl-Wolfe for Harper’s Bazaar, is a vibrant show of Mrs. Vreeland’s proclivity for color, ever-relevant style and dramatic editorial vision. Indeed, there was no image more fitting to grace the cover of “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel.”
