MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. -- November 21, 2012

Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) and Vera Wang Group are pleased to
announce the winner of the nationwide Princess Vera Wang Model Search. In
partnership with Teen Vogue, the model search celebrates the launch of
Princess Vera Wang, a junior’s contemporary, premium lifestyle collection
available exclusively at Kohl’s and Kohls.com. As the winner, Kalia C., age 16
from Seattle, Wash., will appear in a future Princess Vera Wang ad campaign.

Kalia was one of more than 4,500 participants in the Princess Vera Wang Model
Search and selected from three nationwide casting calls in Los Angeles,
Chicago and New York City, and online entries submitted between August 1 and
September 15, 2012. Five model search finalists were chosen by a panel of
judges to travel to New York City for a “Princess Day of Glamour,” which
included a photo shoot and a behind-the-scenes tour of Teen Vogue.

selected as the grand prize winner of the Princess Vera Wang Model Search.
Along with being featured in a future Princess Vera Wang ad campaign, Kalia
received a $500 Kohl’s shopping spree and will be featured in an upcoming
issue of Teen Vogue.

“Princess Vera Wang embodies joy, empowerment, confidence, youth and fashion!
It has been an incredible process all across America searching for the next
face of the brand,” said Vera Wang. “Kalia represents a young beautiful woman
who is both accomplished and committed. Rock on!”

Designed by fashion industry icon Vera Wang, Princess Vera Wang is the
designer’s first ever junior’s collection and features stylish apparel,
jewelry, handbags and shoes. The collection captures Vera Wang’s signature
design aesthetic including relaxed silhouettes, rich textures, contemporary
detailing and whimsical prints and patterns.
