Vera Wang has been tapped to design five costumes for Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek to wear at the Vancouver games. The designer, a former competitive skater herself, hit the ice with Lysacek before creating the looks, which include a charcoal gray feathered outfit and an ensemble made with breathable wrapped silk.

"You have to... look good, be costumed and stay to the music," Wang told WWD. "It's kind of your worst nightmare as a designer." Lysacek won't be the first Olympic figure skater to wear Wang on the ice—Olympic medalists Nancy Kerrigan and Michelle Kwan have also sported her designs.
