Vera Wang has created some of the most iconic red carpet dresses. Selena Gomez's 2015 Met Gala number caused quite a stir, and who can forget this marigold, floor-sweeping gown Michelle Williams wore to the 2006 Academy Awards with Heath Ledger by her side? When we got the chance to talk to Vera about her rules for design, she was quick to point out what her Simply Vera for Kohl's, bridal, RTW, and runway collections all have in common:
"Comfort is a very big thing for me. Even in your Oscars dress. A lot of the women I've dressed [Holly Hunter, Sharon Stone, Cate Blanchett, and Michelle Williams] have come back and said, 'Your dress was so comfortable.' That's not something someone usually refers to for the Oscars or the Golden Globes. I think there was only one woman that didn't [feel comfortable in her dress], but that's because if you get a dress really tight, well, that's not something you're going to be comfortable in," Vera said.
While we obviously prefer a fancy dress we can move in, many stars have definitely sacrificed function to achieve a glamorous look at a big event. For Vera to receive the "comfort compliment" from so many different women is pretty noteworthy — and it's something to be proud of, too. Read on to see all of Vera's clients appearing confident (and clearly feeling comfortable) in their gowns throughout the years.
