Tina Brown’s 'The Vanity Fair Diaries'

Against the decadent backdrop of 1980s Manhattan, a British woman hardly past her 20s arrived to save a struggling fashion magazine, one that now stands as one of the most acclaimed in the world. Tina Brown’s The Vanity Fair Diaries details her tenure as editor-in-chief of the glamorous publication, with text straight from the journals Brown kept during those years. There are inside looks at the drama of working at Condé Nast, iconic cover stories such as Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles and a woman’s rise to the top of a male-dominated industry.
