Still glamorous, 62-year-old Diane von Furstenberg graces! the cover of Town and Country magazine, almost forty years after her wrap dress made her famous.
What we love about Diane von Furstenberg: Her recent holiday collection was inspired by Wonder Woman, but it's the motto that we like: "Be the Wonder Woman you can be."
What makes our hearts go pitter-patter: A portion of the collection's proceeds went to Vital Voices Global Partnership, a nonprofit foundation that promotes women's economic progress.
von Furstenberg says, "I'm so committed to it; they help so many people."
"I want to play an important role in helping women all over the world to empower themselves."
40-year-old Debra Messing graces the cover of the September issue of Town and Country
. She talks about her upcoming film The Women
as her only time in memory of an all-woman cast. She also commented on how women are affected by aging.
"I couldn't imagine that women of such talent and stature would be affected by getting older. I learned that they did feel a switch, but they were refusing to be defeated and taking control of their creative needs - Jada was directing for the first time, Meg was producing The Women, Annette was about to do a play. I found that inspiring."
