Diane von Furstenberg

To say Diane von Furstenberg has lived a fabulous life is a gross understatement. The Brussels-born fashion designer can boast that she wedded (and divorced) a German prince, inspired Andy Warhol, and most importantly, created for the female population arguably the most flattering silhouette of all time—the wrap dress. Today, presiding over the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the 64-year-old Furstenberg proves her relevance persists far beyond seasonal trends. She debuts her latest creation—Diane the perfume—at tonight's Bellevue launch party. All you have to do to ensure you meet the fashion icon in person is purchase a bottle. Of course, it probably wouldn’t hurt to wear a wrap dress, either. ERIKA HOBART
