I love Diane and have many of her things mostly from the past but my goodness she must wear shape ware under her Jeans . They look awful on her. She would look so much better in a trouser jean.

I have never seen a vendor who looks SO BAD in her own jeans. She needs to do something with that awful long weird color hair- and stop having any more face work. In other words Diane is a mess. I just believe woman need to look and dress their age. You got to accept that you are older someday or just look silly. You can dress your age and look very good.

No, her clothes don't flatter her much but, like many others who sell on TV, she wears things 2 sizes too small. Sometimes I wonder how they can stand tight clothes for hours on end. That being said, I LOVE the fit of her jeans and the quality is the best. I guess the older we get, the more comfort we desire. I just hate to see someone squeezed into a medium or large when they should wear a 1X. My rant for the day -- thanks!

Your rant is my rant horsearound everytime I see a popular denim and co. host say with a straight face she wears a "large" and she's broad as a barn I say I'm a large and that woman is twice as big as me she must have a different large then the one I order. LOL

I love Diane's jeans, but she really needs to go up a size. Mine don't bunch around the knees like hers do. They look like a sausage casing on her. I am thick in the waist like her, but my legs are thinner and I wear a 4. Bobbi looks terrible. These jeans are not built for her body. She needs a junior size. I like my 4 pair, but don't know why anyone would want 30 or 100 pair.

I had to look twice at your user name. I thought it was "Snarke."

The first name in your nic describes you perfectly.

I met Diane recently at one of her book signings and thought she looked much trimmer and sleeker in person. She looked fabulous in black leather jeans and black pumps.

I am in the process of reading Diane's book--WOW--I had NO idea what she had been through as a child and young woman. Dispicable abuse by her parents. Losing a beloved husband of 20 years. She has come through the other side and is doing an amazing service for women of ANY age. I agree that some of you might not like or wear her jeans. That's you choice. I happen to love them and get many compliments. I am NOT overweight, have an hourglass figure, and I am a model and actress, and Diane makes jeans for much less that are identical to jeans more than four times their price. I think you just have to try them and make up your own mind about them. I initially bought the wrong size (too big) and thought I didn't like them. I decided to give them another try in a different size and WOW what a difference. Also, I think Diane looks great--she IS almost 70 years old for goodness sake. We should all look so good. I agree with the poster who said "why are women always hardest on other women???" We should celebrate each other. That's MY rant--LOL!

I would love to see what some posters look like. DG is in her 60's and looks great to me.

Although her personality is a little over the top sometimes, I think DG looks pretty darn GREAT for her age! And you can't argue with the tremendous success she's had with her clothing lines -- especially her jeans. More power to her!

I love Diane's jeans. And even if I did not, why in the world would I ever feel the need to trash the way she looks. I am so sick of seeing negative posts about her hair, her clothes, her selling schpiel. For gosh sakes, I hate when women bash other women about how they look. What is this, 8th grade !?!

I have worn DG jeans but had fit problems with them in the past year or so, so have not gone back to them. I always liked how they were offered in so many colors even though I just stuck with more basic colors myself. I think Diane looks great for her age, I think she would look better if she wore clothing a little looser especially the jeans that are so tight in the legs. She is a very successful woman that has had somewhat of a colorful life. I have to wonder what some of the posters that bash her look like or would look like at the same age as she is.
