VERA WANG. The grande dame of wedding gown designs two collections a year ($1,990–$12,900) and makes one-offs for $45,000 and up. Silhouettes range from neat sheaths to big sweeping showstoppers. Vera Wang Maids, across the street, will furnish you with smart numbers for your bridesmaids. Walk-ins and appointments welcome.
In 1990, inspired by a new vision where fashion and bridal meet, Vera Wang opened a bridal salon at the esteemed Carlyle Hotel on Madison Avenue. Retailers, editors and peers quickly noted the impact of her innovative bridal collections and encouraged Vera Wang to extend her design sensibility to ready-to-wear and bridesmaid collections. Vera Wang collections are positioned in the highest end of the luxury market. Customer appeal is high: driven by an artistic, modern and luxurious design style, couture-like quality and a high level of customer service.
A veteran of Vogue, where she served as senior fashion editor for 16 years, Wang was lucky to have the ear of the world's top fashion designers when she opened her salon in 1990 to showcase her bridal collection. The idea emerged from Wang's frustration in bridal fashion when she'd planned for her own wedding the year before. Feeling the industry was steeped in too much tradition and not enough sophistication, Wang saw an opportunity. Today, the Vera Wang name is synonymous with elegant, understated gowns constructed from the finest fabrics. Celebrities like Uma Thurman and Sharon Stone have walked down the aisle in her sleek designs, and Sarah Jessica Parker and Charlize Theron have walked the red carpet. Wang's vision has expanded to footwear, fragrance, eyewear, and home furnishings.

"On Holiday" : a terrific short essay on the film's haunting charm by STEPHANIE ZACHAREK
"...a mantle of sadness hangs over this most stylish of comedies -- weightlessly, like a silken web -- and afterward, I always feel as if it's quietly drifted onto me, too..."
Let us be very strange and well-bred; let us be as strange as if we had been married a great while, and as well-bred as if we were not married at all.
