Needed Distraction for Philadelphia Eagles Fans: Factoid About the Cheerleaders' Uniforms

Philadelphia Eagles fans need a bit of a diversion as their team continues to implode after suffering an eighth straight loss on Sunday night to the Dallas Cowboys. So, let’s talk about the ladies. That’s right--the Eagles cheerleaders.

Random fact: Did you know that Vera Wang designed the looks of the squad, beginning in 2003 with the opening of Lincoln Financial Field? The Eagles Cheerleaders were the first in the NFL to have uniforms created by an internationally renowned designer. But the design didn’t come entirely from the world of high fashion. It was a collaborative process that included Barbara Zaun, Director of Cheerleading for the Eagles, who contributed the creative process involved in outfitting her cheerleaders.

You go, girls.
