Designer Diane von Furstenberg may have just showed her newest collection at New York Fashion Week, but it's her oldest design that we can't get enough of right now. That's right, her popular wrap dress hits the big 4-0 this year.
In 1974, after only a couple of years in the biz, Furstenberg set out to create the simple jersey frock that instantly became one of the most iconic pieces in the style industry. Its classic silhouette and easy-to-wear, flattering shape (seriously a wrap dress covers any troubled mid-section!) makes it just as popular now as it was back then — with major celebrity fans from Madonna to Michelle Obama.
So to celebrate one of the most coveted items in fashion history, we're taking a little walk down memory lane highlighting our favorite wrap dress moments — from its 1974 inception to today.
