If you're anything like us, you haven't quite hopped on the Google Glass bandwagon just yet. In fact, even some of Google's biggest fans have struggled to get behind the idea. But if there's one person who could make it work, it's Diane Von Furstenberg.

Furstenberg sat down with Elle Magazine to discuss her new line of Google Glasses, which will debut at her 2015 resort presentation. And even though the Internet giant has taken steps to make their glasses more aesthetically pleasing before, this partnership marks their first with a fashion designer.

The 67-year-old is a natural choice for a collaboration, not only because of her influence on the industry, but also because she has shown support for the innovation before. During her spring/summer 2013 runway show at New York Fashion Week everyone from the makeup artists to the stylists to the models wore a pair in order to capture the show from a new perspective.

Still, it's hard to believe that Google Glasses will ever really be cool. After all, no one wants to be the "glass-hole" at the party. And as much as we love DVF, at almost $2,000 a pop, we think we'll stick to our regular old iPhones.
