Vera Wang's Home In Los Angeles: Inspiration For 2012 Bridal Collection? (VIDEO)

In October 2011, Vera Wang, the Queen of Bridal, showed a headline-grabbing collection of black and nude wedding gowns at New York's Spring Bridal Fashion Week.

During an interview with HuffPost Weddings after the show, the designer said that her new life in Los Angeles had inspired the collection and its unusual color palette. But given that so many "inspired by LA" collections are light, airy and full of color (how could they not be?!) we were surprised by Wang's explanation.

Now that we've seen her super-minimalist new black and white LA pad -- we understand the connection. Check out the video above from Harper's Bazaar to catch the bridal designer showing off her new $10 million Beverly Hills digs.
