She was “terrified,” she admitted when reflecting on her health struggles earlier. “But I do believe that fear is not an option, so I always try to face it and not be afraid.”
Impact: When she first launched her fashion label, its instant success saw the cover of Newsweek magazine shine, aged just 29
Surgeons want to remove part of her jawbone and cheek, cutting off half of her face. However, she refused and opted for radiation.
DVF even consulted health guru Deepak Chopra, who taught her to meditate and heal herself from radiation burns to her face and back, a sore throat and blisters in her mouth.
When she finished radiation, DVF switched to a largely organic diet, low in meat or sugar.
Diane was an enduring icon in the fashion world after her wrap dresses took the industry by storm in 1974.
Celebrities from the Duchess of Cambridge to Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna have featured in her creations over the years.
Indeed, the designer once known as Her Serene Highness Princess Diane von Furstenberg is now dubbed the “Queen Mother of Fashion,” an international philanthropist and business powerhouse estimated to be worth an estimated $450 million.
Diane, the Belgian-born daughter of a Holocaust survivor, married European royalty and launched a fashion stable so successful that she made the cover of Newsweek magazine at the age of 29.

By 1989, Diane’s annual income had fallen to $1 million when her brand became passé.
However, she came back to life through the uncool medium of the home shopping TV channel QVC, on which she seems to be selling her new ranges of clothing.
In the mid-1990s, her flag was flying high again, thanks in part to the many millions Diller had invested.
In the years since, she even starred in a fashion reality TV show called House Of DVF and starred in MTV’s The City.
