Red is the great clarifier – bright, cleansing and revealing, it makes all colors beautiful. I can’t imagine becoming bored with red – it would be like becoming bored with the person you love.” – Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland on Red….
“All my life I’ve pursued the perfect red. I can never get painters to mix it for me. It’s exactly as if I’d said, ‘I want rococo with a spot of Gothic in it and a bit of Buddhist temple’—they have no idea what I’m talking about. About the best red is to copy the color of a child’s cap in any Renaissance portrait.” – Diana Vreeland

name will forever be associated with effortless chic, style and Red Lipstick. She’s actually the patron saint of Red Lipstick if there were such a thing.
I wish we actually knew what brand and shade she preferred.
The biographies and books mention she wore a shade referred to as Dragon Red -
I’ll keep searching, but if anyone knows please tell us….
In the meantime, I’ll just keep buying every shade that crosses my path…..after all a gal can never have too many shades of Red.
