Ever wondered how long the wrap dress has been around? Forty years and counting.

To fete the 40th birthday of the iconic garment Diane Von Furstenberg designed back in the seventies, the Belgian designer hosted a star-studded soiree at the opening of her Journey of a Dress exhibition at the LACMA in LA this past weekend. 

As expected, almost every celeb in attendance paid sartorial homage by turning up wearing a DVF wrap dress. Below, eight of our favorites of the night.

Louise Roe donned a flirty little kaleidoscopic number that was much more colorful on the bottom than it was on the top.

Dylan Penn looked like she stepped right out of the '70s with an orange animal print ensemble with an exaggerated collar and wrist cuffs.

Marisa Tomei went for full-on Hollywood glamour in a gorgeous green, yellow, and gold gown that glistened.

Gia Coppola was the picture of pared-down minimalism. She kept it all the way classic and chic in an exquisite LBD (that we'd kill to add to our wardrobe).

Allison Williams' black-and-white, dual-fabric, full-skirted frock was one part sexy, two parts whimsical.

Katherine Schwarzenegger sparkled in a stunning sequined raspberry-color gown (which was actually borrowed from the vintage archives. Shhhhhhhh!).

Paris Hilton's knee length dress matched the chain-link pattern on the step and repeat backdrop banner, topped with an additional colorful floral motif.

Last but certainly not least—the fabulous, fashionably formidable Diane Von Furstenberg herself. The lady of the evening's black floor-length frock featured yellow lining that was only visible on the belt and hanging kimono sleeves.
