Diane Von Furstenberg creates the most beautiful, feminine clothes for women. She has lived an incredible life and is such a great role model. If you ever have a chance to read her autobiography, I highly suggest that you do.
I just got a look at her Spring 2009 collection and I love it! These are just a few of my favorites:
The ad campaigns for DVF are photographed by an artist/writer named Francois-Marie Banier. His work is so inspirational to me. He combines photography with writing, drawing and painting to create the most interesting images. A Russian model named Natalia Vodianova (of course she is breath taking) is the muse for these artistic advertisements.
I love how he uses big swipes of color over the images. It creates a whole new life for black and white photographs. To see more of his work you can visit his website.
