Diane von Furstenberg
Kate Middleton has wowed New York City with her style. But you don’t need a royal bank account to dress like the duchess.
Billionaire Barry Diller and his wife, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, have agreed to provide over $100 million to build a 2.7-acre park on a West 14th Street pier through a family foundation.
Fashion institution and magazine mogul Anna Wintour, an active Obama supporter since the beginning of his rise, is launching a fundraising campaign for his 2012 reelection bid. And she’s doing it with style.
The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation made the gift, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. The gift will pay for the last section of the park and supplement the park’s endowment.
