Diana Vreeland

  • The only real elegance is in the mind; if you've got that, the rest really comes from it.

    • Diana Vreeland,
    • in Newsweek ()

  • Beauty has nothing to do with possession. If possession and beauty must go together, then we are lost souls. A beautiful flower is not to be possessed, it's there to be beheld. You're not going to take a beautiful painting off the musuem wall. It's there for your pleasure.

  • I'm a great believer in vulgarity — if it's got vitality. A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste — it's hearty, it's healthy, it's physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I'm against.

  • Vogue always did stand for people's lives. I mean, a new dress doesn't get you anywhere; it's the life you're living in the dress, and the sort of life you had lived before, and what you will do in it later.

  • A funny person is funny only for so long, but a wit can sit down and go on being spellbinding forever.

  • Don't look left nor right and never compete. Never. Watching the other guy is what kills all forms of energy.

    • Diana Vreeland,
    • in Nancy Collins, Hard to Get ()
  • Never fear being vulgar, just boring, middle class or dull.

    • Diana Vreeland
  • A lie to get out of something, or take an advantage for oneself, that’s one thing; but a lie to make life more interesting – well, that’s entirely different.
