Diane Von Furstenberg – Be the Wonder Woman You Can Be

teamed up with DC Comics and wrote her own comic book, Be the You Can Be, Featuring the Adventures of Diva, Viva & Fifa. It’s about the fulfillment and empowerment of women. DVF says: "If I have any mission in life… it is to empower women"

As a little girl I loved the tv show Wonder Women with Linda Carter. I thought she was great – I love her costume – her , her tiara and her golden rope. She was sexy and powerful.

By 1975, DVF was making 15,000 wrap dresses a week! Wonder Women!!!

DVF was her signing her book in her Mayfair shop, I realized I was starring at her because her hair reminded me of Wonder Women’s!

Diane Von Furstenberg on plastic surgery: "I know that a lot of people look at me and think, ‘Why doesn’t she do something to that face?’ But I made a decision. I do yoga and I hike, but I won’t do Botox … I know if I start doing things I will get insecure." [British Vogue]

The proceedes from the comic book , the special edition T-shirt , and the tote will Vital Choices, a company that helps to empower women. I love the t-shirt. I’ve never been a big t-shirt fan but lately I can’t seem to get enough of them.

Forbes.com: What do you wear to feel powerful?
DVF: Hiking boots.

 Diane Von Furstenberg won 2008, Womenswear Brand of the Year!
