Fashion gets put to a taste test thanks to Vera Wang and Ladurée.

Vera Wang Pour Ladurée is a lick-your-lips team-up between the Parisian tearoom and bridal fashion designer Vera Wang. Wang’s well-documented penchant for prettiness diffuses seamlessly into Ladurée’s already polished aesthetic to create a series of all-white confections, which includes a coconut creme Chantilly macaron, as well as a mango and coconut wedding cake. “This collaboration is the perfect opportunity to highlight Ladurée’s wedding offerings with one of the best signature bridal designers,” says Elisabeth Holder, CEO of Ladurée U.S. “The fact is that, to create a pastry or a wedding dress is not so different, they are both about passion.” The sweet supply will be available by special order through 2018. Individual cakes $20, full-size cakes $20 per guest, minimum 40 guests, macarons $24-$425, Ladurée, 3060 M St. NW, 202.737.0492, Georgetown
