Just a few weeks before her scheduled date to be photographed by Chuck Close,
"Giving up" apparently includes avoiding plastic surgery.
At 64...[the designer] has never had any plastic surgery, has no plans to, and if anything takes pride in her lines. “I’ve always liked wrinkles,” she says. “When I was a young girl, I used to make lines on my face with my nails because I loved Jeanne Moreau. I always wanted to be older; I always added years to my life. For the longest time, if people thought I was older I would take it as a compliment.”
The photograph is displayed as part of the "Diane Von Furstenberg: Journey of a Dress" exhibit at the Pace Gallery in Beijing, which opened this week.
