Los Angeles (E! Online) – Dancing With the Stars is getting a little more fashionable.
A source tells E! News that designer Vera Wang has signed on to compete for next season's disco ball trophy...
Wang, who will be 60 by the time the next round of waltzing kicks off in the fall, rose from Vogue editor to one of the world's most famous wedding dress designers. She not only dresses celebs on the red carpet now, but she has her own home collection, plus a lower-priced clothing collection at Kohl's.
As a young girl, Wang trained as a professional figure skater. She later designed costumes for Nancy Kerrigan and Michelle Kwan. Another famous figure skater, Kristi Yamaguchi, won season six of DWTS.
A rep for Wang did not immediately comment. As is usually the case, an ABC rep declined to comment on casting.
ABC just announced today that season nine will premiere with a three-night, five-hour extravaganza on Sept. 21.
