Happy birthday to the one and only DVF. Thank you for another year of empowering women with effortless, sexy and on-the-go dresses. I, like many, have been emboldened by her designs, as seen here in Times Square in 1999 just 2 months after moving to NYC. Where did I find the courage to uproot my life from California and move to a place I knew no one and had no job? In part I credit the dress. It made me feel like I could do anything.
