She was “scared,” she admitted, previously reflecting on her health battle. “But I believe that fear is not an option, so I always try to face it and not be afraid.”
Impact: When she first launched her fashion label, her instant success landed her on the cover of Newsweek magazine at just 29 years old
Surgeons want to remove part of her jawbone and cheek, cut off half her face. However, she refused and opted for radiation.
DVF even consulted health guru Deepak Chopra, who taught her to meditate and heal herself from radiation burns on her face and back, a sore throat and blisters in her mouth.
Once she was done with radiation therapy, DVF switched to a largely organic diet with little meat or sugar.
Diane has become an enduring icon in the fashion world after her wrap dresses took the industry by storm in 1974.
Celebrities from the Duchess of Cambridge to Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna have been spotted in her creations over the years.
In fact, the designer once known as Her Serene Highness Princess Diane von Furstenberg is now dubbed the “Queen Mother of Fashion,” an international philanthropist and business force whose worth is estimated at $450 million.
Diane, the Belgian-born daughter of a Holocaust survivor, married European nobles and founded a fashion stable that was so successful that she made the cover of Newsweek magazine at the age of just 29.

By 1989, Diane’s annual income had dropped to $1 million when her brand became passé.
However, she made her new breakthrough through the uncool medium of the home shopping TV channel QVC, on which she apparently sold her new clothing collections.
In the mid-1990s, their flag hung high again, also thanks to Diller’s many millions of investments.
In the years that followed, she even starred in a fashion reality TV show called House Of DVF as well as MTV’s The City.
