The birthday girl for July 29 is Cynthia Rowley.
Rowley shares her birthday with both Tim Gunn and Diana Vreeland. As a fashion designer who has branched out into publishing, licensing, branding and reality television, Rowley has a lot in common with her Leonine counterparts.
Knowing that these three fashion icons share the same birthday makes me wonder if Diana Vreeland would be on reality TV if she were around today. I believe that the answer is yes. Anna Wintour’s Scorpio sun sign might make her prize the distance she’s created between her and her fans, but Vreeland’s Leonine nature wouldn’t allow her to pass up the opportunity to be worshipped by a whole new audience. I’m sure she’d be sitting on the panel of “Project Runway” any time she had the chance.
