To be called a “Trendsetter”, one has to lead the way to fashion and that’s truly the case for designer Diane Von Furstenberg. The iconic designer celebrated her 40th anniversary for her iconic wrap dress. A wrap dress is that go to dress from the office to happy hour. Relating to the LDB, a wrap dress is flattering to every body type and perfect for those on the go. The perfect thing about the wrap dress is that you can dress it up with sexy sandals or dress it down with causal sneakers. To celebrate her 4 decade milestone, Diane opened a new exhibition in Los Angeles reveling over 200 variations in a massive gallery. Celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Paris Hilton, fellow designer Rachel Zoe and more came to celebrate the icon’s 40 years of work.
