Diane von Furstenberg posts swimsuit selfie on Instagram

Diane von Furstenberg has been a symbol of female empowerment through style since the advent of her timeless wrap dress – versatile, easy to wear and feminine – in the early 1970s. Like any true fashion icon, DVF is is adapted to the times. If the wrap dress has been a staple of feminist fashion since the 70s, the Instagram post about swimwear is a staple of the 2020s.

The iconic designer posted a full body mirror selfie of herself wearing a chic cherry red one-piece with the caption “Selfie at 75?”

She writes: “Trying to own it and 2 hours of daily swimming helps!” Before you say anything about the rather sullen expression on his face, von Furstenberg adds, “I know I should be smiling, but I feel stupid smiling at myself!” Gratitude.”

Von Furstenberg’s post got a lot of love in the comments section from his many famous friends. Model Iman wrote “Fearless & Beautiful” with a heart emoji. Ava DuVernay wrote: “Stunning and sensational”. Andie McDowell simply commented: “Fabulous”.

It goes without saying that everyone should feel comfortable in a swimsuit at any age. But not so long ago, posts like DVF’s elicited more violent and sexist reactions than outpourings of love. Even today, the fashion industry obviously still has a long way to go in terms of actual body positivity and diversity. But in general, Diane von Furstenberg has been on the bright side. In 2015, for example, she wrote an open letter to her colleagues urging them to have more diversity on the catwalks and take better care of models. “As we approach New York Fashion Week, let us remember that beauty is health and health is beauty,” she wrote via HuffPo. “It’s also important to remember that beauty is diversity and as an industry we respect both of these principles.”
