The petite powerhouse is still the big name in bridal fashions. Vera dresses scads of top stars (particularly petite ones with great figures) on their big day or for the Oscars in her simple, elegant designs. Vera's studio is open by appointment only, so brides-to-be should call ahead. There's also a Vera Wang salon on the third floor at Bergdorf's. Ask about the annual warehouse sale, usually in September.
