The Vera Show? Wang Spills Her TV Plans


Last night’s National Arts Awards, hosted by Americans for the Arts at Cipriani, was swimming with creative big shots like Dennis Hopper, Jeff Koons, and Chuck Close—and they weren’t even among the evening’s honorees. Rather, it was Salman Rushdie and Ed Ruscha who picked up trophies, while Sundance Film Festival founder Robert Redford received a Lifetime Achievement Award.

And in attendance was fashion big shot Vera Wang, seated at the table of art collector and event co-chair Julie Minskoff. “I love the arts—I just can’t afford it,” she said. And if she could? “I would buy Tom Sachs, because I like Hello Kitty. And the guy who does all the pills, because I take them all,” Wang said. Well, there are worse reasons to spring for a Damien Hirst. “This is my fifth black-tie evening in five days,” the designer continued. “Even on Sunday! I was at the Waldorf with Hugh Jackman for the Gladney Center for Adoption.” And soon, the designer might be sharing her life—pharmaceuticals and all—with more than just a party reporter. “You’re getting a scoop,” Wang said. “I’m doing a TV show. It’s coming. I don’t know when, or how, but it’s coming.”

    I’d watch it, though I have to admit she’s not one of my favorite RTW designers. I like her personality.

  2. seriously says:

    Is she retarded? She obviously has enough money to buy art, and all she can comment at while at the National Arts Award is that she likes Hello Kitty and pill art? Why is she even there? Please tell me she is pretending to be stupid with no taste.
