Diane Von Furstenberg Distances From Ann Romney Association

The designer Diane Von Furstenberg told a group gathered in her meatpacking district store for Fashion’s night out last month: “Everyone here better be a Democrat; no Republicans!” She then hurried home to watch the president’s convention speech taking place that night.

Either Ann Romney hasn’t heard about that, or doesn’t care, because this week she wore a magenta printed wrap dress by Von Furstenberg ($345 on Shopbop) for a campaign event in Florida. A DVF spokesperson told BuzzFeed Shift “we’re actually not quite sure how Ann obtained the dress,” but did not comment further.

Ann’s spokesperson did not return request for comment. So it’s possible that, despite Diane’s wishes, she popped into a DVF boutique and bought it.
