DVF ON THE MEND: Not all vacations are restful, or, for that matter, safe. Just ask Diane von Furstenberg, who expected to spend a lovely week skiing in Aspen after doing a show in Denver. Contacted for a comment on Michelle Obama’s choice of gown for last week’s State Dinner, von Furstenberg instead offered that she has other things on her mind right now, due to a mishap on the slopes.
“Barry [Diller] and I were skiing happily,” she e-mailed. “Some Brazilian man, who could not ski, lost control and went straight at me, hitting me badly on my face and ribs (with his camera). I went to the emergency room and then flew to UCLA. I look like Mike Tyson on his worst fight. Broken nose and some light facial fractures. At home in L.A. now waiting to heal. Will be staying here the week because I have my children and grandkids. I guess it could have been worse…but it does NOT look pretty.” With New York Fashion Week on the horizon, she added: “Thank god I have Yvan Mispelaere in the sample room.”
