12 Times Diane Von Furstenberg Was the Epitome of Boss

Fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg has been setting trends for more than 40 years. In a recent Guardian profile, she encapsulated some of her experience, saying she's, "Old enough to have danced at Studio 54, young enough to be involved in the first design collaboration with Google." She's an expert not only in fashion but also at living with character. She's all for aging naturally, and she's done it with clear grace. As fashion week draws near, we felt we had to celebrate one of design's timeless personalities. She doesn't walk into a room, she embraces it.
