Diane von Furstenberg has brought each woman’s fantasy to life through beautiful garments and exquisite accessories in honor of the 2019 MET Gala; fashion’s biggest night out. Joining DVF this year is her granddaughter, muse for the brand and young designer, Talita von Furstenberg. Alongside Talita is global style influencer, Camila Coelho and international model, Adwoa Aboah.
Talita von Furstenberg has chosen her look to exemplify that of Eve from the Garden of Eden. She is a whimsical, ethereal vision in her gown adorned with over 300 delicate, silk flowers individually sewn onto the garment. Accessorized with an ornate floral crown and fresh baby’s breath cascading through her hair, Talita is destined to be a botanical dream on the red carpet.
Adwoa’s inspiration comes from a piece by French artist and illustrator, Erté. Designed with signature DVF heritage print, Adwoa will be transformed into a panther for the evening. A custom bodysuit lays beneath a delicate sheer overlay for a marriage of playfulness and glamour.
Camila Coelho is the embodiment of a young Diane von Furstenberg. Taking a trip down memory lane to the days of Studio 54, Andy Warhol and DVF’s everlasting love for the Statue of Liberty, Camila’s look is a vibrant interpretation of Diane’s young personality. The one-of-a-kind gown is amassed in countless silk scarves in a bright, graffiti print. With wild hair to match, Camila has captured the essence of a young Diane.
Finally, Diane von Furstenberg is a mirror image of her beloved landmark; The Statue of Liberty. Complete with torch and crown, von Furstenberg is a statuesque vision in her effortless silhouette gown complete with a replica of her first ever Interview Magazine cover.
“The camp theme is a true clin d’oeil or ‘wink’. It’s fun, doesn’t take itself too seriously and creates an environment where fantasy becomes reality.”
