Style Icon: Diane von Fürstenberg


She’s taken the media world by storm in the last month. With her memoir, The Woman I Wanted to Be and her branded reality television show, Diane von Fürstenberg has married timeless fashion with pop culture. I have yet to read her book (it’s on my to-read list) but I have always coveted her designs. Her aesthetic approach truly considers a woman’s shape which is why her defining design, the wrap dress, can be worn by women of all sizes. Diane von Fürstenberg’s beauty transcends the concept of age. She’s shown women that to be sexy, one must feel sexy and pairing a genuine smile with a golden tan is a good place to start.
