So Sew Me


Wedding couture queen Vera Wang's clients are walking on pins and needles literally.

Two women have filed a lawsuit claiming they had to undergo surgery after pins punctured their feet while they were trying on Wang's wedding gowns. Lawyer Max D. Leifer, who is representing perforated plaintiffs Melissa Brennan and Alexandra Harwin, told Page Six's Tom Sykes: "In each case, a needle got into their foot and a part of it broke off and traveled into the foot. They needed surgery and were on crutches for six weeks."

Leifer said each woman is seeking about $75,000 from Wang, and they sued because Wang's insurers had taken a "negative attitude" toward their injuries.

--Six weeks on crutches for stepping on a pin? Doubtful.

Stepping ON a pin and putting pins IN your foot are 2 totally different things.

Go do some MBE questions, Jaime. :)

OH MY GOD!!! Can you imagine if this had happened to Michelle Kwan, whose skating dresses are designed by Wang. I would be besides myself.

Oh, just the thought is agony!!!

Chuck, wouldn't you be beside yourself?
And can we say "assumed the risk"? Those dresses weren't finished and they had pins in the hem - watch where you step!

No, Kelly, I would be besides myself, as my insides would literally come out of my body and rest in a pool next to me.

Oh, I am so so tore up just thinking about this!!
