Diane von Furstenberg is known for many things: her famous wrap dress, her feminist take on the world, and the amazing wisdom that she imparts - sometimes lighthearted, sometimes serious, and sometimes just outright shocking. Check out a list of 5 of these remarks below!

  1. “Everything I did, I did before I was 29...Between the age of 22 and 29, I got pregnant first, married second, had two children, moved to America, started a dress business, became hugely successful, hugely successful, hugely successful. I was on the cover of Newsweek, on the cover of Interview. I brought my husband to the country. I separated from my husband. And I bought an apartment on Fifth Avenue. All that before 29. Everything I did after that was just repetition, and not as good." - Discussion at The Wing NYC
  2. "My mission in life...[is] to empower women. Why? Because I wanted to be an empowered woman, and I became an empowered woman. And now I want to empower every woman. And I do it through my clothes, I do it through my words, I do it through my money, I do it through everything." - Harper's Bazaar Interview
  3. "Honestly, one of the things that I deplore about some of the shows on television is that they objectify the woman and they make you say, 'if you’re a bitch, you win.' And that was a very important point, that you don’t have to be a bitch to win." - Press Event for "House of DVF"
  4. "The worst thing that has happened to women in the last 15 years is Viagra...For men, it used to be all about getting it up. ‘Did I?’ ‘Can I?’ There was a certain fairness. A woman couldn’t have a child after 40, right? Though even that doesn’t exist anymore...But the man could have a child until 65… Now, with Viagra … they just feel … I think Viagra is the worst thing.” - Interview with The Times 
  5. "Usually the fairy tale ends with the girl marrying the prince. But mine started as soon as the marriage was over.” W Magazine
