One designer is celebrating the anniversary of one of her famous pieces, and another is launching a look inspired by a dinner guest. NY1's Jessica Abo filed the following report.

For fall 2014, Diane von Fursternberg's collection, Bohemian Wrap, takes us on the journey of her wrap dress.

"The very first look that's coming out of there is the original, original style," von Furstenberg says. "Not fabric, style of the original, original dress.

DVF first designed the dress 40 years ago, drawing inspiration from ballerinas.

"The inspiration of the show is all about the ballerina of the ballet rousse, that artistic movement that happened after the Russian revolution, when all the artists went to Paris and to Berlin," she says.

Abo: What is about this dress that you like so much?
von Furstenberg: It's paid every bill ever and made me famous. It made me, it bought for everything. Listen, I love the dress, but I've taken it for granted for so many years. It's only this year for the first time that I decided I honor her, and I discover how timeless and incredible it is.

Meanwhile, Lela Rose is combining food, fashion and entertainment, a recipe that will leave you dressed to impress.

"It's all about the chef, who I think is one of the most creative geniuses out there. His name is Ferran Adria, and I just hosted a dinner in honor of him," Rose says. "You'll see a lot of swirled jacquards, and the colors are colors that you would see used in his dishes."

To spice up her collection, Rose picked thorn heels by shoe designer Jerome C. Rousseau.

"As a designer, it's easy to do something big and over the top that you notice, but something more subtle that's more sturdy than the silhouette is quite the challenge, and I think this works beautifully," Rousseau says.

Whether you're hosting an affair or just a guest, celebrity stylist Ted Gibson says this tip will make you turn heads.

"If you have a piece of jewelry at home that you haven't worn in a long time and you don't necessarily know what to do with it, and you don't want to give it away, put it in your hair," he says.
