7 Uplifting Tips Diane Von Furstenberg Has for the Modern Woman

Lately, we've been obsessed with everything DVF here at TA. From her effortless style to her fearless approach to life, she's proven time and time again that she's a force to be reckoned with.

Her legendary wrap dress cemented her name as a luxury lifestyle brand in fashion and her legacy continues to inspire generations of young women. In honor of DVF, we present to you some words of wisdom from the inimitable Diane herself.

It's OK to not have the future perfectly planned out, but always know the person you want to be.


Be your own best friend.


Become a legend. Easy enough.


On success.


Tend to the most important relationship in your life: the one you have with yourself.


The power of confidence.


Never underestimate an excellent attitude.


I'm currently in the middle of her new memoir The Woman I Wanted to Be, so stay tuned for a fan girl book review.
