From Jennifer Lopez and Chelsea Clinton to your cousins Jennifer and Chelsea, millions of brides have said "I do" in a Vera Wang wedding gown. A New York City native and former competitive figure skater, Wang had spent 15 years honing her discerning eye as an accessories editor at <i>Vogue</i> before launching her household-name brand of understated bridalwear in the late 1980s. Her dresses and gowns are for women who adore classic, minimalist style — think draping fabrics and flattering shapes that derive their glamour from texture and stitching instead of sequins and sparkles. Wang applies the same simple aesthetic to her ultra-feminine couture line and ready-to-wear label Vera Wang Lavender. Awash in elegant, muted colors, rich fabrics, and luxe details, Wang’s coveted collections are consistently chic; her thoughtful silhouettes are romantic, thoughtful, and slightly whimsical all at once. Aside from clothing, Wang's creations include perfume, fine jewelry, stationery, bedding, and hotel room décor. She’s also created the collaborative labels Simply Vera (with Kohl’s), Vera Wang for Hartmann (luggage), and White by Vera Wang (with David’s Bridal) to bring her inimitable style to the mass market.
