Is Fashion Designer Vera Wang Headed to “Dancing With the Stars?”
Talk about an injection of fashion on “Dancing With the Stars” because fashion designer Vera Wang is rumored to be joining the cast next season. E! News is reporting that the bridal gown designer has signed on to compete in next season’s series. Wang, who doesn’t look it but will be 60 by the time the next round of waltzing kicks off in the fall, is one of the world’s most famous wedding dress designers in addition to her ready-to-wear collections. Wang branched out into the mainstream, when she launched a lower-priced clothing collection at Kohl’s in addition to a home collection.
Wang trained as a professional figure skater when she was young and then went on to design costumes for Nancy Kerrigan and Michelle Kwan. Both Wang’s reps, as well as reps from ABC, have refused to comment. ABC announced that season nine will premiere with a three-night, five-hour extravaganza on Sept. 21.
Zoe Kravitz is new face of Vera Wang fragrance
She’s rock-star royalty, a style icon, and Lenny’s daughter. Vera Wang made a fabulous choice in selecting Zoë Kravitz as the new face of Vera Wang’s Princess fragrance. The gorgeous daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, Zoe embodies all things stylish and will inject some hip blood into Wang’s advertising campaigns for the super successful women’s scent collection, which includes the new, darker floral scent appropriately called Rock Princess. Kravitz will replace actress Camilla Belle, whose contract ends in July.
