Diane Von Furstenberg and her American Legends

Diane Von Furstenberg and her still-new collaboration with co-designer Yvan Mispelaere took inspiration for her Fall 2011 runway show from strong women they consider “American Legends,” specifically Millicent Rogers, Diana Vreeland and Gloria Vanderbilt. Von Furstenberg said that meant runway explorations of “rodeo, editor in chief and society lady.” I say bring it on and I can't wait to get it in my closet! While the show featured plenty of gaucho accents and I haven't worn gaucho pants since trying to bring back the trend in high school there were still citified inspirations in smart coats, sophisticated silk blouses and deep, rich seductive colors. While the collection sometimes was over the top in excess it still delivered a sultry mix of items that would work in any gals wardrobe when work or weekend beckoned for sassy meets chic. And I hope to see an actress on the Oscar red carpet in the sequined blue number.
