I admired Diane von Furstenberg's terse, elegant, volume-speakingly dismissive answer to HuffPo's question "As a prominent businesswoman yourself, what do you think are the unique challenges of running for president as a woman?"

DVF: "I was born in Europe. We have many women presidents or prime ministers."


(And if Diane freaking von Furstenberg can resist scrutinizing Hillary's fashion choices, can't the rest of us?)
