Diane von Furstenberg Sent To Emergency Room After An Aspen Ski Accident

comments

WWD reports that Diane von Furstenberg was flown to a hospital in UCLA after sustaining face and rib injuries while skiing in Aspen. Said DVF via email,

"Barry [Diller] and I were skiing happily. 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 Fashion Week looming close, Diane is relying on creative director Yvan Mispelaere to keep things chugging along. Here's to speedy recover, Diane! (WWD)
