Two of my favorites in music and fashion, Beyonce and Diane Von Furstenberg, join forces with other notable women and men to fight against the “B-word”. Now this is not the typical “b-word” that comes to most of our minds, no, this “b-word” is… BOSSY. Several celebrities and civic leaders use their voices to empower young women that it is okay to be a leader, and being bossy (at times) isn’t such a bad thing.

I recently attended the Spring 14′ NY Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! I was only in NY for a weekend and man did I have an experience of a lifetime! Everything happened in the moment! I got to see several shows, meet celebrities and fashion icons, interviewed Tracy Reese and her lead make-up and hair team, was highlighted on essence.com for great street style, and best of all, I got to meet Diane Von Furstenberg – my fashion idol! Here is a brief photo recap of my fashion week experience – –
DVF has done – done it again! I love the combination of clean tailored styling with her traditional mix of pop colors and prints. Undoubtably, I adore the short-long-sleeve-neon wrap dress; a classic silhouette she manages to reinvent every season! Another collection – well designed! (oh and by the way… I need those shoes asap…thanks)… (size 9)
Coca-Cola has teamed with Diane Von Furstenberg to offer customers a limited-edition collection of aluminum bottles splashed with her signature prints in red and black.
The bottle will be available at select DVF boutiques throughout February ($30 for a set of four). This signature eye-catching collection will see 100 percent of proceeds go to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) in support of The Heart Truth program for women’s heart health research.
The word on the street is that designer Diane Von Furstenberg will be designing a line for Gap Kids. The collection will most likely be released in Spring/Summer 2012 – which for us fashion junkies is right around the corner!
I am anxious to see what she has up her sleeve for this collection. Surely there will be plenty of print combinations and dainty silhouettes – But I am crossing my fingers that she adds a baby wrap dress to the mix! Now THAT I would love to see!
