Diane Von Furstenberg Mugged in Madrid

Even the most famous fashionistas fall prey at times to the shadier side of the beautiful destinations meant to seduce us, both at home and abroad. Case in point:

“Madrid. I just got robbed in the street in front of the Thyssen museum,” Diane von Furstenberg tweeted on Sunday. “My wallet, cash and all my credit cards!”

Fortunately, the only damage the lucky thief did was to her wallet and she was able to escape virtually unscathed, her upbeat demeanor still intact. “I am totally fine! I hope it [is] the worst thing that will happen to me,” she tweeted later on that evening. “Getting a big price tomorrow so going to sleep now.”

I believe the “price” she was referring to is the International Designer Award from Telva, the leading fashion magazine in Spain, an honor which was awarded to her at the 2009 TELVA Magazine Fashion Awards at the El Canal Theatre in Madrid. Angel Schlesser, a Spanish designer, was awarded the National Designer Award alongside her.
