For more than 40 years, Diane von Furstenberg has designed beautiful, covetable dresses and ready-to-wear pieces for a strong, stylish, independent woman. Today, we celebrate her birth and all of her fabulous accomplishments since jump-starting her iconic brand. Among her chic milestones? Giving us a plethora of colorfully signature wrap-dress prints, being honored with the CFDA lifetime achievement award, moonlighting as a judge on America's Next Top Model, committing millions of dollars to New York City's High Line public park, and inspiring countless women to own their womanhood. To honor DVF's iconic ladylike looks, we've culled the brand's most stunning campaigns to date. Click through to admire Diane's wearable works of art in all their glory.
Freja Beha Erichsen alone would have made for a stunning story, but add It-model-of-the-moment Arizona Muse, put Karl Lagerfeld behind the lens, and you have one killer story. It's a gender-bender at that, with Freja looking just as dapper in men's clothes. Click through to see the gorgeous pics.
We're known to love some body-con dresses now and again, but we were totally humbled by Brazilian model Ana Beatriz's turn in Elle. Now that's how you do it if you want to be a bombshell. Yes, she has an inherent advantage over us in that she's been a Victoria's Secret model and Sports Illustrated babe for years. We love that she turns up the heat in Miami in some of Spring's colorful and quirky looks. Click to see Ana Beatriz teach us all a lesson in real sexy.
Now that they're engaged, it's even more interesting to see Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic get all hot and smoldering for this Russian Vogue editorial, photographed by Alexi Lubomirski. The insanely gorgeous couple look like they're on the run (whilst dressed in Spring '11 Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci, of course), driving through a desert landscape in a vintage Cadillac. It's almost like a fictional part deux to Anja's H&M magazine spread, where Anja posed in a desert landscape and a rugged, sexy Sasha made a cameo appearance, this time on a horse. If only editorials were real, this would be one hell of a story. Click the slideshow to see supermodel love in action.
