Diana Vreeland was one of the more eccentric characters in the fashion industry.2

But she was also hands-down one of the most influential magazine editors.

This film takes a look at her extraordinary life and what she contributed to the fashion industry.

From her work at Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue through to her time at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, you’ll be amazed by what this woman achieved in her lifetime.

3. Bill Cunningham New York

If you’ve never heard of Bill Cunningham before, this documentary is a good place to start.2

It tells the story of the New York Times photographer and his important role in street style photography.

He is, without a doubt, the original street style photographer (and some would argue the best).
