Celebrity fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg was robbed on Sunday (25Oct09) during a day-trip to a Spanish art museum.

The Belgian-American designer, who has dressed stars including Paris Hilton and actress Blake Lively, was vacationing in the capital Madrid when the attack took place.

Von Furstenberg, 62, revealed her shock in a post on her Twitter.com page just moments after the incident.

She wrote: "Madrid. I just got robbed in the street in front of the Thyssen museum... My wallet, cash and all my credit cards!!"
