Viewers of beloved game show “Wheel of Fortune” may have noticed cohost Vanna White is looking particularly glam this week.
The letter spinner has been modeling Bob Mackie archival gowns to help promote a new “Wheel of Fortune” collection by the designer available at shopwheeloffortune.com.
“I have been watching ‘Wheel’ and ‘Jeopardy’ since the Eighties. They are part of American life. Some nights I get all the answers and some nights I think I lost my brain,” Mackie told WWD. “Also, Vanna wore some of my dresses way back when and amazingly she is exactly the same size today.”
During the week, White also wears a new design Mackie custom-made for her, as well as a more casual piece, a $99 rainbow wheel pattern kimono from the “Wheel of Fortune” collection, which includes glitter T-shirts, denim jackets, scarves and neckties.
“I have been a huge fan of his my whole life,” said White, who has been on “Wheel” for 38 years. She made headlines at the end of last year after stepping in to host the show for three weeks while Pat Sajak was out for emergency surgery.
