Oprah + Vera Wang = *O* Whole Lotta *Vera*y Happy Brides 2 Be
Alright. The title’s a bit of a stretch, but work with me here, people! Because the news itself is sooo worth the super reaching headline!
On Friday’s episode of (skies part, angels sing) Oprah, Vera Wang and Ms. O herself delighted audience members on the verge of nuptial bliss when they gave away 50 of Vera’s very opulent gowns! And while I’m sure each one of the Future Mrs. So and So’s would’ve been more than happy to end their victory dance there, Big O’s gravy train just kept rolling in!
That’s right. She went ahead and one-upped herself after the gowns were given away by then offering these lovely ladies in waiting a $250 gift card to Kohl’s, where Wang’s Simply Vera collection is available, a $4000 (eye chee wah wah!) gift certificate to Marriott Hotels and Resorts and finally, two United Airlines travel vouchers.
Now, I know what you’re all thinking, “Man! I gotta get me some tickets to an Oprah show!” – because, darlings, I think the same darn thing after every “Favorite Things” episode! However, for those of you not lucky enough to be in her studio audience, fear not, for there is good news for all!
Vera Wang – who’s known as bridal couture’s finest feature – is now in the final stages of polishing her new line that will make its fabulous debut at David’s Bridal, February of 2011!! Hooty hoot! The price tag? Anywhere between $600 – $1500. And ranging in sizes from 0 – 14 – ’cause Lord KNOWS us chubby bunnies love us some couture too :) :) :)
“These dresses will be available to so many more brides than I’ve been able to ever reach before,” Wang told Winfrey. “So it’s a whole new world for us and bridal, with all the same aesthetics and design philosophy.” (The Oprah Winfrey Show, 9/17/210)
So, in the meantime – between now and February 2011 – feel free to watch the entire Oprah clip here and keep dreaming in Vera!
