Franco Rubartelli on Love, Veruschka and Diana Vreeland.

“I think Mrs. Vreeland was very original. Having such an important position in the world of fashion in those years, she directed taste toward the different, the eccentric. She understood things immediately, and if she liked an idea, she approved it on the spot. She had very precise ideas about colors; for example, she loved red and dressed in it and decorated her apartment in it. Apart from her strong and precise ideas of color, one could never be sure about her decisions until the last moment. Once she liked an idea and authorized it, she approved the costs of the productions. There was never an intention to reduce the result by making any kind of economy.” -Franco Rubartelli
