Vera Wang's Olympic Doubleheader...

Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek became the first American man to win gold since Brian Boitano did in 1988.

THE VIRTUAL ME: It’s 2 a.m. Can’t bear to wait until stores open to buy a Louis Vuitton monogrammed bag? Well, the French leather goods house has satiated the desires of its round-the-clock shoppers with the launch of the Mon Monogram personalization service on its Web site. Customers can click to order their own unique Monogram canvas bag that can be customized with initials and 17 different colors and stripes for more than 200 million possible combinations. The colors are applied to the canvas before it is coated and sealed, to ensure long wear. Until this month, the service was only available in a select group of Vuitton flagships across the globe. Prices range from $940 to $4,070. “Since our founding in 1854, Louis Vuitton has catered to clients wishing to create custom pieces via special order,” said Daniel Lalonde, president and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton North America. “We are delighted to offer this new platform on and in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide.”
