Lot Essay

Saturday, July 6, 1985
Told Stephen to meet me at 7:30 sharp at Diana Vreeland’s for dinner. It was a huge rainstorm but it stopped at 7:40 and I walked over. Stephen Sprouse was already there and sweet. He’d brought Mrs. Vreeland some outfits. I had my tape recorder on and she came in and said, “What’s that?” and I (laughs) told her, “A camera,” because I thought she couldn’t see. And she said, “No it’s not.” So then I told her it would be like old times, taping again, and she said okay. She said she has a girl sit in the room with her while she sleeps. I thought that was so strange, that she would want that. But then, I guess she is sick, so . . . She had four vodkas and she smoked about fifteen cigarettes.
