Last spring, Vera Wang was meeting a friend for lunch at Barneys New York when a woman she didn’t know approached her.
“She was just the kind of person we’d love as a client,” Wang recalls. “She was not only beautiful, but she was intelligent, and she had a sense of style that was so modern. She ran over to me and said, ‘You’ll think I’m really crazy, but I never do this. I’m a big fan of yours and I love your ready-to-wear.’ I almost started crying. I’ve waited almost 20 years to get here. It’s been a long, long road.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
