Elegant and Exotic – Vera Wang, Sebastian Pons and Alvin Valley
The last of the New York collections showed there’s more than one way to create a strong collection. You can do it with stunningly elegant evening beauties or by creating terrific looks with ethnic influences.
Vera Wang: Has anybody ever doubted that Vera Wang has the Midas touch? Certainly her track record as a designer suggests it. And now she has proved it definitively with a new fine jewelry collection, which Sarah Jessica Parker dipped into for the Emmys on Sunday night.
The beautiful new jewelry underscores Wang’s design aesthetic, fusing femininity, sensuality and subtlety — qualities mirrored in her spring lineup, which she presented informally on Monday. Wang is a real pro when it comes to dressing celebs, and she thinks her intricately pleated, short, black charmeuse skirt paired with a ribbed cotton cardigan is perfect Oscars fare. Then there was an ivory silk basketweave coat, belted with a blue ribbon and embroidered in floral sequins, which she showed over a fancy cutout skirt, but thinks it could be “great with jeans.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
