After recently announcing her divorce from Arthur Becker, Vera Wang may already have moved on with a new man, according to reports.
New reports have stated that Vera Wang may now be dating Evan Lysacek, 27, the 2010 Winter Olympics gold medal winner in figure skating. Wang herself has experience on the ice. The 63-year-old began her fashion career after failing to win a spot on the U.S. Olympic figure skating team, quite a few years ago.
Just last week representatives for the designer released a statement, revealing that Wang was planning on divorcing her husband of 23 years.
"Vera Wang and Arthur Becker have mutually and amicably agreed to separate. They remain devoted parents to their two daughters," Mario Grauso said in a statement.
That Wang would be dating someone else, however, comes as a surprise for someone who claimed to be too dedicated to her career to have time for relationships.
"I was the girl who nobody thought would ever get married," she told New York magazine in 2006. "I was going to be a fashion nun the rest of my life. There are generations of them, those fashion nuns, living, eating, breathing clothes."
It was her fellow colleague, Ralph Lauren, that inspired her to continue her journey in life alongside a partner.
"Get yourself a husband and a family," Wang recalled Lauren saying. "You have got to get a family going here. You've been single for three decades now."
However, despite having two daughters, Wang was still unsure about her decision at times and not always willing to separate herself from work.
"There are days I'm not happy I did it, but there are days I'm thrilled- I mean, he has always understood my nature, which is that it's always about product," Wang told the magazine.
But the New York Daily News has now reported that Lysacek has moved in with the iconic fashion designer. The pair attended Kim Kardashian's wedding last October and have been close for a while, sources say, although new speculation has raised the question of whether the two are now more than friends.
