By Diego Costa
The film captures Vreeland's perhaps unwitting philosophical integrity just as much as it drowns us in the exuberance of her work.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Like no one before or since, she had what she valued most in others - good, old-fashioned pizazz.

The filmmakers are clearly fans, and any of Vreeland's personal shortcomings - child-rearing, for instance - are only hinted at.

Washington Post

The documentary mostly steers clear of Vreeland's home life. Little attention is paid to her husband or her children, and that may be partly because Vreeland didn't seem to have much time for them, according to interviews with her two sons.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
This is a pretty, surface-y documentary rather than the kind of exciting one Vreeland would have demanded, declaring, "You gotta have style!"

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
The movie has a lot going for it. In less than 90 minutes, it walks us through sketches of Vreeland's private life and the formulation and decades-long execution of her philosophy in the pages of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. The energy here is a selling point.

It's clear the director's proximity to the family stopped her from going into uncomfortable territory. We never learn much about Vreeland's husband or how his wife's high profile and dedication to work affected their relationship.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
While plenty of talking heads turn up to offer breathless praise, it's no surprise that the preeminent words of wisdom are, thanks to copious archival footage, Vreeland's own.
