On April 5, Diane von Furstenberg and the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation will host the fourth annual DVF Awards—a ceremony that honors philanthropic and all-around stand-up females who work to better the lives of other women. Today, Style.com can announce that model Natalia Vodianova will receive the Inspiration Award—an accolade given to women who have shown strength in the face of adversity and used their experiences to help others. Vodianova is being recognized for her work with the Naked Heart Foundation—a charity, of which she is the founder, that aims to provide a safe and inspiring play environment for Russian children. And the Russian-born supermodel is in the company of some pretty remarkable women—previous winners include Elizabeth Smart and Jaycee Dugard.
“Diane is like a mother to me, so I do believe she is a little biased,” Vodianova told Style.com. “With that said, she is also the one person who knows the most, outside of the Naked Heart Foundation team, how passionate I am about my cause, and how hard I work to realize it.”
Vodianova will be honored during an event at the United Nations. To learn more, or to vote for the DVF People’s Voice Award, visit www.dvfawards.com.

The nominees for the June 3 event are below, and like last year, the awards will be broadcast on Style.com the day following the event.

FNO may be a thing of the past, but Diane von Furstenberg and Theory’s Andrew Rosen have appropriated the shop-till-you-drop evening fund-raising technique for their own philanthropic purposes. On March 18, the pair will host the first annual Open Market—an event that will bring music (DJ sets from the Misshapes, Nancy, JD Samson), food, cocktails, and fashion (sample sales from Alice + Olivia, Helmut Lang, Honor, Theory, DVF herself, and more) together to benefit the Meatpacking District Improvement Association. Set under one roof at the Highline Stages, the fund-raiser will be a “visual homage” to the vintage MePa days. We hope they don’t take the theme too literally, though.
To purchase tickets, visit meatpackingopenmarket.eventbrite.com. All ticket proceeds will go to the MPIA.
From Michelle Obama wearing his jacquard coat on Monday at the 57th Presidential Inauguration to the debut of his latest menswear collection in Paris last Sunday, Thom Browne’s name is on everyone’s lips. And it looks like we won’t stop talking about him anytime soon. Today, WWD revealed that Browne will be awarded Pratt’s Fashion Visionary Award during a ceremony at the Top of the Standard on April 25. And he’s in good company, considering Narciso Rodriguez, Diane von Furstenberg, and Catherine Malandrino are all former honorees. The event will also serve as a stage for Pratt’s senior fashion students to reveal their collections—who knows, maybe a future MObama favorite will be in the bunch.
