Accessory Designer of the Year Nominee

“I love accessories because they’re transformational,” says Vera Wang, whose crystal-encrusted bibs, ladylike satchels and retro-inspired sunglasses have garnered much acclaim.

Wang’s recent forays into costume jewelry — she has collaborated with Philip Crangi and Janis Savitt — stemmed from her fixation with vintage fine jewelry; her set of antique cameos inspired the oversize resin crystal stunners (a Savitt collaboration) she wears here. “[Costume jewelry],” she says, “is something you can wear and enjoy with a T-shirt and not feel like you’re in something grand.” This is Wang’s second CFDA nomination; she took the top women’s wear honors in 2005.
