QUINTESSENTIAL HOLIDAY: In designing the "quintessential divine holiday gown," Olympic gold medalist-turned-designer Evan Lysacek was inspired by what he called the season's "classic and iconic" chocolate, Ferrero Rocher. "I used the chocolate as a muse," said Lysacek, who consulted with his "mentor for life," Vera Wang, on the design. The dress, made of gold leather, brown velvet and tulle, made its debut Monday night in conjunction with the chocolatier's $100,000 donation to Habitat for Humanity International, and will be auctioned off on Ferrero Rocher's Web site through Dec. 18, with all proceeds also going to Habitat for Humanity.
Wang, who said, "There are two F's in my life — fashion and figure skating," was present at the debut to support Lysacek. The two have collaborated in the past on designs for Lysacek's figure skating costumes and also are working together on his men's wear line.
