Diane von Furstenberg: I have great legs

Diane von Furstenberg never tires of being told she has great legs.

The designer is best known for creating the wrap dress, which she cites as chic for women of any figure. The 64-year-old has built her career around making women look stylish but also sexy, something she strives for herself.

"The best thing that's been said about me... oh I don't know. People say I have great legs and that is always nice to hear," she laughed.

Diane is proud that she's been open about her life. She's been married twice and struggled at the start of her career, but hopes talking about those things has inspired other women.

The designer loves her job and is keen to impart some words of wisdom to both men and women.

"A well-dressed man/woman should be confident," she told Blue Carreon, in an interview posted on

"Women should always wear perfume."

Diane also predicted colour will be a big trend over the coming months, and revealed she is so attached to her iPad she even sleeps with it.

The star often wonders what her life would be like if she wasn't in fashion, and thinks she'd still be glamorous. She could see herself working in Hollywood, as she thinks that is very close to what she does now.

"If I weren't doing what I'm doing today I would love to be a director or a playwright. Fashion is storytelling in its own way, but I have always been drawn to other forms of it," she said.

"There's a time and place for indulgence. I think it is important to be disciplined with yourself, but you must have some little sins."
