Marc Jacobs + Playboy... Vera Wang for David's Bridal...

Marc Jacobs is giving shoppers quite a titillating treat this fashion week.

LOVE VERA: Despite being on the backside of a bout with bronchitis, Vera Wang hosted a lunch for 70 Wednesday at National to show off her new wedding dresses for David’s Bridal. The 300-unit chain’s president and chief executive officer Bob Huth raised a glass to the designer and the debut of White by Vera Wang. “We are finally able to bring to the masses the one name they have always desired to have,” he said.

The new label’s retails prices — $600 to $1,400 — were jaw-dropping for a few guests.

With Tuesday’s runway show fast approaching, the designer understandably had much to ponder. While being whisked off to do a quick TV interview before returning to her office, she said: “There’s this little thing I have to do — a show.”

Wang wasn’t the only one with dresses on her mind. InStyle’s Hal Rubenstein is polishing off “One Hundred Unforgettable Dresses,” a new Harper Collins book due out in September.
