'Style was a standard,' she declared, remembering her 26 years as fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar (she joined the magazine in 1936, departing in 1962 to become editor-in-chief of American Vogue). 'You gotta have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It's a way of life. Without it you're nobody. I'm not talking about lots of clothes.'
'Diana lived for imagination ruled by discipline, and created a totally new profession. Vreeland invented the fashion editor. Before her, it was society ladies who put hats on other society ladies.'
