Celebrating DVF's 70th with Maternity Wrap Dresses

Marrying a German prince, being painted by Andy Warhol, and making wrap dresses popular. Diane von Furstenberg certainly has quite a legacy in her wake, and seeing as she turned 70 on December 31st 2016, now's about time to celebrate her iconic style with a few maternity wrap dresses.
