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. Since 2004 Wang has applied the same ultra-feminine aesthetic to Vera Wang Lavender Label: a line of ready-to-wear women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories awash in muted colors, rich fabrics, and luxe details. Lavender’s coveted dresses, metallic jackets, embellished ballet flats, leather boots, and other creations are consistently chic; Wang’s thoughtful silhouettes are romantic, thoughtful, and slightly whimsical all at once. Aside from clothing and bridalwear, 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.
The queen of wedding gowns can outfit you well beyond your big day with glamorous outerwear, including a fur-trimmed taffeta coat, or with sleek separates like charcoal merino-wool sweaters with floral appliqué and black satin slim-fit pants. But Wang's still churning out her gorgeous dresses - such as these mermaid-cut evening gowns, silk chiffon and velvet panel shifts and flirty halters - that would be perfect to wear as a wedding guest.
