World-famous fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg became a fashion legend when she first released her iconic wrap dresses with bold prints back in the early 1970s, which proved to be universally flattering for any woman’s figure. Now the fashion industry is buzzing with speculation that Diane is concealing her plastic surgery with a ski accident.
64-year old Diane Von Furstenberg has long claimed not to be a fan of plastic surgery. In 2008, she was quoted as saying, “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. You wear your own face. It is a little bit of your history, a little bit of who you are.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “It is possible Diane von Furstenberg had a browlift and facelift at one point. Overall, if any work was performed it was not too overdone and her look still appears natural. ”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It does not appear that Diane von Furstenberg has had any cosmetic surgery done, but she may have cosmetic treatments such as used Botox on her forehead and fillers to her lips. She could really rejuvenate her look with a facelift and Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).”
Recently, Diane was in a ski accident, sending the fashion world buzzing with speculation that the legendary designer was covering up plastic surgery. The rumors were proved false when Diane revealed her bruises, which were only on one side of her face.
Diane tells the New York Daily News, “If I ever had any desire to have plastic surgery, after this week, I know for sure, I would not want it,” she says. “I was so terrified that I would lose my old face.”
Although the design diva says that the doctors initially told her she would need complete facial reconstruction after an inexperienced skier ran into the left side of her face, she nixed that idea.
“I don’t want anybody else’s face. I don’t want a younger face,” she says. “I just want my old face back.”
She went on to say, “if I did have plastic surgery, it is not something I would hide, because I don’t usually hide anything.”
“I’m still bruised under the left eye,” but adds she was “extremely lucky. Yes, I did break my nose, but it doesn’t show.”
Her cheekbone was also fractured, “but I don’t think that will show, either.”
When she is finally healed, the designer says her face “will not be rejuvenated. It will be the old face.”
That, she concludes, “is the best we can hope for.”
