Diana Vreeland to Join Long List of Icons on Rodeo Drive Walk of Style
Next month, legendary Vogue and Harper's Bazaar editor in chief Diana Vreeland will become the first fashion editor included on the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style, where she'll join fashion icons like Manolo Blahnik, Tom Ford, and Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco.
Vreeland's ceremony will be held on Sept. 10, when a plaque bearing her name and a quotation will be affixed to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Vreeland's son Tim and granddaughter-in-law Lisa Immordino Vreeland — who is also the creator of the book and documentary Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel — will accept the honor on her behalf.
The honor has been given out every year since 2003 "to honor style legends for their contributions to the worlds of fashion and entertainment," according to Rodeo Drive's official website. That means the list includes designers (both Gianni and Donatella Versace are on it), fashion companies (such as Cartier and Missoni), and movie industry notables (like costume designer Edith Head).
