For the girl who has everything except for paper to match her four-figure gowns.
Bridal collections are shown a year in advance, and judging from the looks sent down the spring 2014 runways, brides will be sporting some untraditional looks next season.
Two gowns, two gals, two galas. And while both wore black, Nicole Kidman and Kerry Washington delivered two very different looks.
“Oscar’s attention to detail is simply amazing. The lines, the fabrics, the colors — he doesn’t miss a thing.” So says Olivia Palermo in the just-released video for Oscar de la Renta‘s line for The Outnet.
While his residency in Oscar de la Renta‘s studio began only a matter of weeks ago, John Galliano‘s signature drama was noticeably in the air yesterday evening as we settled in to watch what was surely one of the most hotly anticipated shows of New York Fashion Week. Sitting front row was Cathy Horyn, no doubt relieved that all of the Galliano gossip means that the media will be letting barbecue-related bygones be bygones this season. Since she has known both designers for many years, we couldn’t pass up the chance to pick the brain of the New York Times fashion critic about their partnership this season.
Oscar de la Renta is, without question, a living legend amongst New York fashion designers. And with good reason: this year marks his 50th anniversary toiling away in the city, creating some of the most sophisticated and elegant collections American fashion has to offer. The 80-year-old sat down with William Norwich for an interview in the new issue of New York magazine, and shared some of his well-earned wisdom and, yes, dished on some of the juicy stories he’s found himself involved in as of late.
Oscar De La Renta and online outlet retailer, The Outnet, have teamed up on a 24-piece collection set to launch on February 26.
Vogue brings back Vogue Festival to educate the humble masses on the fashion industry.
There may be many people who disagree with Oscar de la Renta‘s decision to lend a hand to John Galliano in his pursuit of a big fashion industry comeback, but John’s brother Joe is not one of them. If you’ll recall, Joe is a recurring guest on Conan and, like his brother, a lover of unusual, extravagant headpieces, on which front he truly outdid himself last night.
No awards show would be complete without a sartorial snafu or two. Whether its an errant undergarment, a seam torn all the way down a rear end, or a slipping neckline, it’s pretty much bound to happen to someone. It must be all that beading or something.
Oscar de la Renta is just so gosh darn charming in this 1984 interview with Barbaralee Diamonstein that we kept forgetting just how old the clip was — until, that is, they zoomed out and we got a full look at his interviewer’s outfit: a brown, quintessentially Eighties, ruffle-necked dress.
This weekend, the mega popstar uploaded a video onto her Little Monsters site which shows her dancing around in a hot dog costume to Edith Piaf‘s “La Vie, L’Amour”, amongst other things.
Ann Romney cooked up some Welsh cakes and hung out with a horse on the set of Good Morning America today, which she guest-hosted alongside George Stephanopoulos. At first we thought she had opted to repeat the Oscar de la Renta dress she wore for the Republican National Convention (her best outfit so far, in our humble opinion), but upon closer inspection today’s look was cinched with a sash and had a few extra buttons up the front. That’s not to say that was the last time you’ll see her in Oscar, however!
And now Cathy Horyn‘s boyfriend Art Ortenberg has thrown himself into the Oscar de la Renta/Horyn fray. What started out as a simple review that was lost in translation has turned into a much bigger deal.
The Lady has spoken in the ongoing (and, yes, rather silly) dispute between Oscar de la Renta and Cathy Horyn that began when the former took out a full-page ad in WWD rebuking Horyn’s column that called him “far more a hot dog than an éminence grise of American fashion” and countering with the accusation that his critic could be fairly called “a stale 3-day-old” hamburger.”
Oscar de la Renta and Cathy Horyn made headlines last week with their verbal squabble. In her somewhat mixed review, the New York Times‘ critic referred to him a “hot dog”. De la Renta didn’t take it well, so he took out a full-page ad in Women’s Wear Daily, and fired back with an open letter in which he slammed the writer for being unprofessional, and called her a “a stale 3-day old hamburger”.
