With Facebook's falling stock price, Mark Zuckerberg hasn't been out of the headlines over the past week but his new wife is also creating headlines. Over the weekend his Priscilla Chan married the social media mogul wearing Claire Pettibone, creating a surge in interest in the brand.
Ever since the image of the dress hit the net this week, Pettibone has been inundated with requests. According to WWD, the designer has been overrun with phone calls from buyers trying to get their hands on the dress and unsurprisingly, orders have poured in and the website went from an average of 1,500 daily unique users to 26,000.
Don’t pay attention to fashion naysayers, Mr. Zuckerberg! I wore black crewnecks, black jackets and jeans before my IPO and I continue to do so after. It’s your talent, vision and performance that people are interested in.
Mark Zuckerberg has been pretty busy recently. The Facebook founder recently bought Instagram for a reported $1 billion and last week he was plastered all over the headlines as he took Facebook public and mind you, all of this took place before he celebrated his 28th birthday.
Despite all of the achievements, the fashion press have been less interested with the company and more concerned about poking fun at his 'uniform'. Anyone that has followed him over the years will know that he rarely, if ever, departs from his signature baggy jeans, t-shirt and hoodie combo and with an estimated $100 billion coming his way from all the new deals, people can't help but talk about whether the Harvard drop-out will finally decide to upgrade.
You'll be pleased to know that he did just that on Saturday when he tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Priscilla Chan. According to US Weekly, guests at the wedding believed that they were coming to celebrate Chan's graduation from medical school only to be told on arrival that the wedding was taking place.
