The Eye Has to Travel, produced and directed by Vreeland's granddaughter-in-law, Lisa Immordino, documents Vreeland senior's incredible reach within the fashion industry and beyond. She is credited with discovering Twiggy and Lauren Bacall, advising Jackie Kennedy on style and helping Diane von Furstenberg, Manolo Blahnik and the Missionis launch their businesses.

The film presents Vreeland through the eyes of the people who knew her best and features interviews from Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon and David Bailey to Hubert de Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Angelica Huston and Ali MacGraw.

I would love to see this documentary at the premiere on the 3rd of September!
