News just in: fashion designer Vera Wang is an ‘equal-opportunity shopper.’

The designer who is known for her intricate and stunning wedding dress creations has told WWD she loves hitting the shops wherever she is and doesn’t mind what outlets they are. Right…

Vera preciously worked as a senior fashion editor for Vogue magazine for sixteen years before embarking on her own wedding gown emporium and has since expanded her brand to include jewellery, fragrance, shoes, eyewear and a home collection. Nothing stopping Vera! Well perhaps Sarah Burton will knock her off the Queen of Bridal Gowns throne following Sarah’s remarkable job as dress designer of Duchess Kate’s vintage inspired Alexander McQueen gown for her wedding to Prince William.

Considering that most of Vera’s dresses range between £1,200 to £4,300 (that’s $2,000 to $7,000 for our American readers) and some even costing as much as £7,000 or more ($12,000 plus), we’re not sure how much we believe this statement.

Vera Wang surely has a comfortable living so why would she shop in common shopping centre stores when she can have her cake and eat it too?
