Last night at the CFDA Awards we asked Diane von Furstenberg what she thought of Instagram’s strict policy on nudity.

She reminded us that censoring nudity is, after all, a very American question. (And that summer is best spent on a yacht.) “When I’m not working, I’m on a boat. I’ll be around the Med,” she told the Cut. “I’m European, so — I always used to be topless when I could afford to. You can only do that when you’re very young.”

But, we asked, is there a cutoff? “To be topless?” she responded. “Forty. Some people more, but after a while, no.”

So, here’s looking at you, Rihanna. See you in 14 years.
