Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"We suspect that in her imperious voice, Vreeland would say she was mad about it, and she'd mean it as a measure of praise."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"For fashionphiles and pop culture vultures, there's much to devour."
‑ Amy Verner, Globe and Mail
"Although some of the dates and causal events in her life are passed over, the rhythm and style carry the narrative forward until the last 20 minutes, when the film mostly meanders to the finish."
‑ Matt Kelemen, Las Vegas CityLife
"An otherwise fine profile of American fashion magazine doyen Diana Vreeland is let down by pedestrian production."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"This pleasurable documentary is jammed packed with images from magazines, photoshoots and newsreels of a life well lived, but also lots of historical footage of the life Vreeland imagined she had too."
‑ Russell Edwards, sbs.com.au
"Her life, and her work, transcended what we think of as "fashion." Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel celebrates a unique and uniquely determined woman."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Diana Vreeland is both history lesson and sentimental love letter to a fashion titan."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"She was a fashion-industry icon and taste-maker for decades, working at Harper's and then Vogue in an era when magazine publishing was as adventuresome as painting, filmmaking and music."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"She wanted you to look and look again, and this film is full of images which make you do just that."
‑ Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
"...more of an energetic and affectionate sketch than a revealing portrait of this oversized personality, but one has to wonder if the woman who celebrated glittering surfaces would have wanted it any other way."
‑ Jeff Meyers, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"Many people remember some of Diana Vreeland's famous pronouncements ("I adore pink! It is the navy blue of India!") but few remember actually hearing her speak. The documentary Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel takes care of that."
‑ Suzanne S. Brown, Denver Post
"Legendary fashion editor Diana Vreeland was the consummate dreamer, a romantic who never looked back and propelled society forward."
‑ , Dallas Morning News
"A lively portrait that's as colorful, dynamic and oh-so-fashionable as one of Vreeland's magazine spreads."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"There's something marvellously comic about her, an effect reinforced by her refined yet raucous baritone voice."
‑ Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
"This fascinating documentary reveals that Vreeland (who died in 1989, aged 86) was an original: a dynamic woman with energy to spare and an infectious lust for life"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
