During an interview at 92Y on Wednesday night, Vera Wang told Fern Mallis (Creator of New York Fashion Week) that her relationship with with figure skater Evan Lysacek was nothing more of a mentor-mentee relationship and it was not the reason why her marriage fell apart.
“I’m his mentor, his true mentor I hope for his ongoing life after sports,” the Chinese American fashion designer insisted to Mallis.
Last summer, after Wang announced she was ending her marriage (just two weeks shy of their 23rd anniversary) to businessman Arthur Baker, she was reportedly seen attending functions together with the 27-year-old American figure skater. Rumors had also escalated that they had also moved in together.
Wang married Baker in 1989 and have two daughters together, Cecilia (23) and Josephine (19). Wang is known for her haute couture bridesmaids and wedding gown collections, as well as designing competition dresses for various female figure skaters. Prior to beginning her own line, Wang famously turned down the Editor-in-Chief position of US Vogue (before it turned over to Anna Wintour) after being a Senior Fashion Editor to join Ralph Lauren as a Design Director.

ABOUT 21 and Over
Is she gorgeous – or is she GORGEOUS?! G.I.: Retaliation star Elodie Yung graces our Spring 2013 cover, looking fresh and feminine – something that’s much different from her role as Jinx. She told us she has very little modeling experience – but she’s quite modest, I think she did perfectly fine.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Elodie in our cover story – and I can tell you it was one of those once in a lifetime experiences. As a Cambodian American woman working in the entertainment industry, I’m happy to see another Cambodian woman rising up as an actress. She’s one of the most down to earth women I’ve ever met – and I’ll never forget the stories we shared growing up as Cambodians in our respective hometowns (hers Paris, mines Long Beach). And yes, I made my Creative Director Diana King cry with the story — success!
