Diane von Furstenberg Recovering from Broken Nose After Ski Accident


>> Diane von Furstenberg
was planning on spending a week skiing in Aspen, but unfortunately it didn't turn out that way, she emailed WWD:Barry [Diller] and I were skiing happily. Some Brazilian man, who could not ski, lost control and went straight at me, hitting me badly on my face and ribs (with his camera). I went to the emergency room and then flew to UCLA. I look like Mike Tyson on his worst fight. Broken nose and some light facial fractures. At home in L.A. now waiting to heal. Will be staying here the week because I have my children and grandkids. I guess it could have been worse…but it does NOT look pretty.” She later Tweeted: "I guess i was lucky although i get scared when i look in the mirror." But it sounds like her Fall 2011 collection won't be affected: “Thank god I have Yvan Mispelaere [her creative director] in the sample room.” [WWD]
