Vera Wang, Nearly Went Bang

The Corsair always thought that those fashionable SoHo cobblestoned streets must be murder on a fashionista's perfectly-manicured toesies (Exaggerated cough suggesting feigned detachment). Vera Wang, apparently, got caught sleeping-while-standing-up, and nearly took a very fashionable "concrete nap." We can joke about a slip of a woman like Vera Wang nearly meeting that Great Fashion Designer-in-the-Sky in retrospect because, of course, no one was hurt and -- mirabile dictu -- in the end, monies were raised for a good cause. It's all good. And, if you have a good imagination, pretty chi-larious. From Fashionweekdaily:

"Vera Wang nearly had a close encounter of the worst kind Thursday. The designer, in SoHo taping a television commercial for her new collaboration with Kohl’s, tripped in her Prada stilettos while crossing the street, stumbling onto the cobblestones just as a commercial delivery truck came rambling along. Fortunately for Wang, the truck screeched to a halt barely an inch before hitting her and she was able to regain her composure in time to finish taping and, later that evening, attend a splendid summer gala performance featuring Mikhail Baryshnikov and Hell’s Kitchen Dance. Carolina Herrera, Anne McNally, Mercedes Bass, Graydon and Anna Carter, and Joan Didion were also all on hand for the intimate dinner, which raised more than $400,000 for the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation."

A Hell's Kitchen dance, indeed!
