"Allure is something that exists," Diana Vreeland said, "It's something around you...like a perfume or a scent...It's like memory...it pervades." Diana Vreeland was not only Editor-in-Chief of "Vogue" for almost a decade, she was also the curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. Her legacy continues to influence the fashion and photography worlds today, with issues of magazines such as "Vanity Fair" and "Vogue" dotted with mentions of her name. "Allure" is Vreeland's personal selection of images by some of the century's greatest photographers - among them Horst, De Meyer, Avedon, Beaton, Penn, and Steichen - featuring some of the celebrated personalities of the era including Garbo, Nureyev, Callas, Queen Mary, the Duchess of Windsor and Josephine Baker. By turns witty, sharp, and effusive, Vreeland's text opens up the images and take the reader far beyond them into the imaginative, gossipy world she knew so well.
