I was desperately waiting for this book to become available. I owned the original and it was amazing. This book is small and some of the most memorable photographs are missing. The $23.10 that I paid for this book could have gone toward the cost of a used copy of the original. Calling it "Allure by Diana Vreeland" is a disgrace.

Arrived very promptly and in excellent condition. Even had a note from the person that packaged saying that they hoped I enjoyed my purchase! Of course the book itself is fabulous, I am taking my time going through it and savoring all of the fabulousness that Ms. Vreeland brings! If you are looking for a picture book and don't intend to read this, I suggest you go another route. This book is a treasure chest of amazing quotes, inspirations, and wisdom from one of the most influential people ever in the world of fashion. I have enjoyed every bit of it!

The late Diana Vreeland , who has seen every garment you could imagine, and met everyone you could imagine has bequeathed her perspective on what possesses the power of "Allure". As she toured the world she knew ( Europe, the U.S., the U.K. and, effectively, the World of Fashion ) there would come moments of revelation when she was struck by an image or a moment that had more than just beauty or visual appeal. It had a gravitation pull that seduces the observer and reveals that it has more than the mere beauty of its subject or the ability to conjure day-dreams of distant lands where Shrangri-La has an all-night convenience store. These images possesses the power of "Allure".

allure |''lo'r|
noun
the quality of being powerfully and mysteriously attractive or fascinating :

Every image has that intangible quality but it arises from many unexpected sources. How fortunate we are to have Diana, whose nose for the next big thing is undefeated. She gives us more than just the images, however, and that is the gift of her philosophies in life of how joy and beauty can be seen in all things whether they be simple and even commonplace. She also gives her secrets for establishing one's own personal style.This is more than mere dressing tips..No Ma'am! This is the beginning steps to becoming a world-wide icon without even knowing that it was happening. Diana never rushed cameras and begged people to photograph her but her image is one of the most readily recognizable in 20th century fashion. It wasn't her beautiful face that got her there. It was the sirens song that played just below the ability of humans to hear that
swelled as she entered a room, a restaurant, or a taxi-cab. Truly one of the most fascinating women of the century but also the one we might miss the most.

This is a picture book with pages of Diana Vreeland philosophies and wisdom. Her intoxicating and enigmatic personality envelopes your visual and imaginative senses in this larger than life, oversized book. Her titillating personality and selective photographs consume you.

What I like about many of her books is that she insists the text be untouched and unedited. Her ideas are their but slightly allusive. I suggest reading "D.V." by Diana Vreeland, first. Much of the same essence is present but more developed.

Notes on the book: It is oversized and all the photographs are in black and white.
Having become enchanted by DV back in my teens/early 20s, I was excited to finally get my hands on this book. I must have grown up because her schtick has worn thin. The copy is nothing but the manic musings of an aged fashionista that Hemphill tries desperately to prop up. The pictures aren't even that fun to flip through - probably because DV manages to make every photo somehow about herself. It's everything people have come to hate about the ailing fashion industry.

It's not even useful as a coffeetable book due to its shrunken size.

I rarely comment but this was such a disappointment (to a longtime fan). I'm almost embarrassed to continue to own this book.
