D is for Diane Von Furstenberg
Diane Von Furstenberg epitomizes seventies style and beauty. With a personal look that hasn't wavered much since her emergence as a fixture on the fashion scene in the 1960's, Furstenberg's impact on the fashion industry far exceeds the creation of her trademark wrap dress. As the current president of the CFDA, this forever-youthful, Belgium-born, one-time Princess, contributes significantly to the recognition of emerging fashion designers. Her own designs present an aesthetic that features elements such as geometric prints, short hemlines and voluminous sleeves-offering a vintage look that is high in quality and rich in texture. Musette praises this bronzed goddess for her unwavering vision, triumph over cancer, and of course-for being a beautiful muse to Andy Warhol.
