Happy Birthday, Donna Karan! We Celebrate with a Look Back at Her Early Years

Break out the confetti, Donna Karan is turning 66 today. It’s been a wild ride for the design doyenne, once dubbed The Queen of Seventh Avenue, who launched her signature collection in 1985. In honor of her birthday, we’re taking a look back at some of her early days. We’re talking about when Francis Ford Coppola was sitting front row while his daughter Sofia walked the runwayalongside Isabella Rossellini, no less. Somebody cut the cake.
