>> It's all about TV these days: Elle just started filming for The City, Zac Posen is working on the early stages of a scripted show, the ladies at WhoWhatWear are developing a fashion news show with MTV . . . and now E! is reporting that Vera Wang has signed on for the ninth season of Dancing With the Stars, which premieres Sept. 21.
Although neither Wang's rep nor ABC would confirm the report, the casting is feasible — Vera trained as a professional figure skater and competed with a partner in the 1968 US National Championships before trying to qualify for the Olympics the same year. She also has experience designing the glitzy, tight outfits that are worn on the show — she once designed for figure skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Michelle Kwan.
