During editor Diana Vreeland’s 25 years at BAZAAR, her “Why Don’t You ... ?” column never once included “Why don’t you spend the last of your paycheck on your favourite pasta and a glass of Brunello?” That suggestion comes from her pop-singer great-granddaughter, Caroline. Bold enough to appear nude in her video for “Wasteland”, the 27-year-old may seem like the antithesis of Diana, but that’s hardly the case.
“She was unafraid of doing something a little taboo,” says Caroline. “She said it best, ‘There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.’” Making waves with new single, “Slay”, a lot of her music focuses on flaws. “I celebrate imperfection, just like Diana did.”
