In her defense, the excuse “I’m Vera Wang and these were comp’d to me specifically from Ralph,” would have hit too close to home, in light of the bridal designer’s recent divorce.
NY Post reports:
“Jilted bride Erica Wang of Manhattan was caught last week swiping nearly $6,000 in clothing from the Ralph Lauren store where she worked — and then even copped to stealing $46,000 more, sources told The Post yesterday.
“Todd English is lucky he didn’t marry her,” a source said about Wang’s former fiancé, the mastermind behind The Plaza Hotel Food Hall and Ã‡a Va restaurant at the Intercontinental in Times Square.
Wang, 36, had been working for the flagship Ralph Lauren store on Madison Avenue at East 72nd Street for about eight months before the bust, sources said.
On Wednesday, she picked up nine items totaling $5,944.25 at the preppy clothing emporium and stuffed them in a black shopping bag, according to a criminal complaint that cited a witness.”
