Vera Wang Splits From Husband Arthur Becker
The greatest thing to happen to weddings in recent years hasn’t exactly found her own happy ending. Famed bridal gown designer Vera Wang has split from her husband of 23 years, Arthur Becker.

Aww, maybe it’s the Vera Wang curse? You know, tons of brides who wear Vera Wang get divorced: Kim Kardashian to Kris Humphries, Mariah Carey to Tommy Mottola, Jessica Simpson to Nick Lachey, Elin Nordegren to Tiger Woods, Avril Lavigne to Deryk Whibley, Jennifer Lopez to Chris Judd, Jennifer Aniston to Brad Pitt…I’m going to stop before I get too depressed.

The elephant in the room is what Vera and now-ex husband Arthur are going to do with her Vera Wang company because he helped her build up the brand.

Arthur was working for Ralph Lauren when he married Vera and advised her as her business developed and become instrumental at her company including becoming involved in day-to-day operations.

A friend of the couple told Women’s Wear Daily, “They will not let this impact the running of the company. They have worked too hard to build it up.”

As for their marriage and the future for their two daughters Cecilia and Josephine, the couple has vowed to remain amicable for the sake of their children.

A statement released by her company’s president, Mario Grauso says, “Vera Wang and Arthur Becker have mutually and amicably agreed to separate. They remain devoted parents to their two daughters.”
