Nothing could cheer us up more on this grey Friday morning than the news that one of our all-time favourite fashion icons, Diane von Furstenberg, is to launch a beauty line this year. Having signed a contract with the famous ID Beauty, DvF will kick off with a fabulous fashion fragrance this autumn. Further down the line we will be able to get our hands on DvF skincare and cosmetics too. Hurrah! Here's hoping the eye shadows are as brilliant and bright as her dresses. And if the matte fluro pink lipstick that we drooled over backstage at the S/S '11 show is anything to go by, we're in for a real treat!
Diane told WWD that this new step is “a commitment to empower women," saying, "Everything I do in life has to do with how much I am inspired by women, how much I respect women and how much I want every woman to feel strong, beautiful and confident." Diane, we salute you.
It hasn't been decided yet who will be the face of the beauty line, but we're secretly hoping it's Whitney Port, who used to work for the fashion label. Or perhaps it'll even be Diane herself? Either of these glowy gorgeous gals would make us happy. Who would you like to see as the face of the line? Let us know below!
