Diane von Furstenberg Launch of GapKids + DVF Draws Celebrity Moms Milla Jovovich, Jessica Capshaw, Busy Philipps and their Children


Iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg has now begun working her magic on the younger generation with GapKids + DVF.  The designer first became famous in the pantsuit-popular 1970s for moving women into feminine wrap-dresses.

Billed as a “world premiere,” her Mar. 3 launch – targeted to a younger generation of fashionistas – drew a host of celebrity moms, their children and more VIPs to Gap at The Grove in Los Angeles. They included among others, Milla Jovovich of “Resident Evil” and her husband, director Paul Anderson; Busy Philipps of “Cougartown,” Alyson Hannigan of “How I Met Your Mother,” Jessica  Capshaw of “Grey’s Anatomy,” Constance Zimmer of “Entourage,” Tiffani Thiessen of “Beverly Hills 90210,” Molly Sims of “Las Vegas,” Gabriel Macht of “Behind Enemy Lines,” Courtney Mazza, Rhea Durham, Samantha Mollen, Bobby Shriver and Katherine Schwarzenner.

Once known as Diane, Princess of Furstenberg, (her first husband was Prince Egon von Furstenberg) the designer has been recognized many times over the years for her impact on fashion. In 1976, after selling more than a million of her distinctive dresses, she was featured on the cover of Time Magazine and in 1997, she successfully relaunched her dress line. Today, the DVF brand also includes accessories and a fragrance. 

The new collection is aimed at girls, in an age range from birth to fourteen, a collaboration between Gap and von Furstenberg, which features fashions in classic DVF prints, shapes and colors.
