My Advice

What kind of bride are you? Capturing all the considerations of tradition, propriety, sensuality and fashion into one dress is far from easy. For brides who gravitate more towards style over fashion, I recommend delicate and artisanal details such as hand-tied bows, fabric-covered buttons, lace trims and embroidery.


I refer to these brides as traditionalists, and I love their instinct for the subtle and the sublime. The traditionalist is the timeless beauty of Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O, women who understood that understatement, together with grace and poise, is utterly captivating.  — XO, Vera

Michelle Obama's State Dinner Dress

First Lady Michelle Obama wore a custom Vera Wang Collection gown to welcome China's President Xi Jinping as the guest of honor at the White House State Dinner in Washington, D.C. on September 25, 2015. The black silk crepe mermaid gown features an architectural V neckline and tulle sleeve accented by hand draped silk textural organza pleated skirt. After President and Mrs.Obama greeted their President and First Lady of China, Vera posted on her twitter account: "It is such a privilege, as an American of Chinese heritage, to have dressed First Lady @MichelleObama for this state dinner honoring President Xi Jinping and First Lady Peng Liyuan, of the People's Republic of China."
