Bergdorf Goodman pays tribute to Diana Vreeland

Back when personnel puffed Pall Malls at the office, Diana Vreeland edited Harper's Bazaar and advised Jacqueline Kennedy about style. Outraged after two and a half decades of being passed over for promotion, Vreeland quit her post and joined Vogue. Soon, memos and daily dictation became the preferred mode of communication between editor-in-chief Vreeland and her staff. This week's windows at Bergdorf Goodman celebrates Rizzoli's new publication, Diana Vreeland Memos: The Vogue Years (edited by grandson Alexander Vreeland).

Quotes and oversized memos amplify Vreeland's super-sized personality. The pointed notes bare her thoughts on life, fashion and designers. Trimmed in red--much like the red of her living room--Vreeland's memos often bear the mark of their maker. Paired with elegant outfits resembling the Chanel she enjoyed, Hoey memorializes one of the greatest women in magazine in this week's windows at Bergdorf.
"Let's Promote Grey"

"A good photograph was never what I was looking for. I like to have a point. I had to have a point or I didn't have a picture. This is what I've always found so fascinating about paparazzi pictures. They catch something unintended, on the wing...they get that thing. It's the revelation of personality" [source: Allure].
