Fashion Icon to Be Honored on Rodeo Drive Walk

Diana Vreeland will be inducted into the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style in Beverly Hills on Monday morning.

Late fashion columnist and editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine Diana Vreeland will be inducted into the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style on Monday morning, City News Service reported.

The event will be hosted by the City of Beverly Hills and the Rodeo Drive Committee at 11 a.m. on the 200 block of North Rodeo Drive, where a bronze plaque will be laid in the sidewalk in Vreeland's honor.

Vreeland's granddaughter-in-law, Lisa Immordino Vreeland, recently directed a film about  the fashion pioneer titled Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. She and Vreeland's son, Tim Vreeland, will be in attendance for the plaque placement, City News Service reported.

The film celebrates Vreeland's mark on the fashion world from the period between the 1930s and the 1980s, according to the Rodeo Drive Committee website.

"The City of Beverly Hills is proud to honor Diana Vreeland with the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style award," Mayor William Brien said in a press release. "Diana Vreeland was one of the most influential women of the 20th Century who changed the face of fashion as we know it."
