Goals is a word that gets thrown around all too often these days but, when talking about Diane Von Furstenberg and Gloria Steinem, it’s not a hyperbole. The feminists’ friendship is one that many wish they could be a part of and, yesterday, that became possible for a moment when the pair attended the MAKERS Women’s Conference together and documented it on social media.
Diane Von Furstenberg, who honored Gloria Steinem with a lifetime achievement award in 2014, posted a photo of them together on Twitter from the event, wearing coordinating ensembles. Appropriately, both women drew inspiration from the ’70s, wearing practical and powerful form-fitting black layers topped off with three feminine ingredients: oversized, almost tribal jewelry, a fabulous statement coat, and fuss-free, natural-texture hair. It’s a look that both of these trailblazers basically invented, that still looks just as modern today. (See the runways of Gucci, Prada, and Chloé for proof.)
