>> Diane von Furstenberg and co-designer Yvan Mispelaere’s theme for DVF’s Fall 2011 collection was “American Legends,” specifically referencing Millicent Rogers, Diana Vreeland, and Gloria Vanderbilt, in which von Furstenberg explained as runway explorations of “rodeo, editor in chief, and society lady.” So it was only fitting to have a few leading ladies — Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Molly Sims, Fergie, and Maggie Q — sitting front row at the event yesterday to check out the eccentric and eclectic sea of colorful liquid sequin gowns, graphic gaucho wraps, print pajama suits, “like the ones I used to wear to Studio 54,” said von Furstenberg, along with leather jackets, and her signature wrap dresses.

High slits, an overarching theme thus far during Fashion Week, also made their way on the runway in addition to sleek silk tunic dresses styled with Western-inspired hats and stacked knee-high boots. Von Furstenberg's throwback references, like '70s-inspired pleated dresses, and modern, via a cropped star-embellished jacket, were seamlessly intertwined, creating a covetable collection for any stylefile.
