Vera Wang is reportedly moving into menswear with a tuxedo line.

The fashion designer is best known for creating stunning wedding gowns for the world's elite, with Victoria Beckham, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez all opting for her creations on their big day.

It's now been suggested Wang is ready to branch out into other areas of style.

The designer has already inked a deal with The Men's Wearhouse to make the smart suits, according to Women's Wear Daily.

She's reportedly working with Flow Formalwear on the project - the same company that worked with Jersey Shore's Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino on his tuxedo line and has collaborated with Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.

Neither Wang nor The Men's Wearhouse has officially confirmed the news, but in a recent conference call The Men's Wearhouse apparently discussed a "new licensing arrangement with a well-known apparel brand, specifically designed for our tuxedo rental business".

Wang's expected to make the news official in the next couple of days.

Earlier this week, the designer confirmed she is launching a children's line with Kohl's Corp. Princess Vera Wang will hit US stores in August, according to WWD.
