A living fashion legend, Diane von Furstenberg has been turning out chic ensembles and modelling them masterfully for over four decades. In this week’s issue we travelled all the way to Tinseltown to catch up with the lady herself on the eve of the opening of her major retrospective show The Journey of a Dress at the Wilshire May Company Building adjacent to LACMA. To celebrate her milestone we asked Diane to dissect her look over the years and give us an insight into her favourite looks of all time.
