Diane von Furstenberg: I've never gone crazy

Diane von Fürstenberg has "never gone too crazy" when it comes to naughty treats and alcohol.

The legendary fashion designer said that while she has indulged from time to time, she generally tries to eat as well as possible.

The 65-year-old warned that not looking after yourself properly will eventually have consequences.

"I haven't always been an angel but I've never gone too crazy either. I live pretty cleanly, enjoying a glass of red wine every now and again. The food you eat is super important - an unhealthy lifestyle will always catch up with you," she told UK magazine Marie Claire.

The style icon, who is famous for her feminine tailoring and wrap dresses, also revealed that she didn't like her curly hair when she was younger.

After damaging it by trying to straighten it in any way possible, Diane now accepts that the waves are part of her and revealed her miracle product.

"I used to do anything to try to straighten my curly hair (including using an iron on it!). Then once I did a shoot with wet hair and as it was drying, they carried on taking pictures. Seeing the shots afterwards I finally realised 'this is me'," she said. "Now I embrace my curls and use Bumble and Bumble shampoo and MoroccanOil to keep my hair in good condition."
