Vera Wang designs figure skating costumes for Evan Lysacek; more pressure than an Oscar dress

We all know about Vera Wang‘s figure skating past and Olympic dreams, well she’s keeping her dream alive by designing figure skating costumes for Evan Lysacek, one of America’s top medal hopes for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. She even hit the ice with Lysacek to learn about how he moved on the ice and his balance for artistry and athleticism (it all sounds like that Project Runway challenge) but was wary about getting any injuries as a 60-year-old woman, a mother and leading fashion designer. Wang compared a figure skating costume to an Oscar gown, saying that there is “more pressure than an Oscar dress in a strange way,” she says, because the costumes has to complement the music. “I have to have the music for a skating costume, and that’s not the way I normally work.” [Canadian Press]
