DVF via Goop

I'm a sucker for interviews but I particularly loved this line from Diane Von Furstenberg as told to Gwyneth in yesterday's Goop.

Q: What are the three top qualities you look for in a female friend and why? 

A: Confidence, because insecurity is a waste of time...honesty because there is no point in being told everything is great all the time. A woman needs friends who will tell her the truth. And a sense of humor is so important.  

Thank you for saying this. It's a lesson I've really learned as I've grown and matured. And confidence is not arrogance or vanity or narcissism.... Confidence is a true inner peace with who you are, what you want and how you're getting there. Without it, people are jealous, petty, fearful and a slew of other less favorable things that make an honest and positive friendship nearly impossible.
