Oscar de la Renta Page 2
Just when we thought that New York Fashion Week was over and behind us, a verbal feud has broken out between designer Oscar de la Renta and New York Times writer Cathy Horyn. While the most recent development occurred just this morning, it seems like this was a year in the making.
Ok, we know we said that the glow-in-the-dark dresses at Alexander Wang were the highlight of our New York Fashion Week, but Oscar de la Renta‘s first-ever kid’s show definitely gave those show-stopping specimens a run for their money.
Word to the wise: don’t ask Moises de la Renta for tickets to his dad Oscar‘s runway show this season. Or next season for that matter. Or any season after that.
Ann Romney picked a winning look for last night’s address at the Republican National Convention. The fiery red Oscar de la Renta shirtdress, paired with gold jewelry, black low-heeled sandals, and a coiffed ‘do, won over many less-than-conservative critics today. This, of course, was especially important in a look that was no doubt far more calculated than her previous ensembles.
It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means the dog days of summer are almost upon us! Let’s ring in the season with some very fashionable pooches.
Yesterday we attended the Oscar de la Renta spring 2013 bridal show (yes, bridal collections are shown a full year in advance), and it was lovely. Really, really lovely.
Stylist Brad Goreski told us last night just before the Oscar de la Renta show that he was hoping “to see gowns that will definitely end up on the red carpet” by the time the Academy Awards are here. And while the show had no shortage of gorgeous floor-length dresses that Goreski’s clients will love, what we loved was the hyper intelligent interplay between prints, textures and embellishments. Oscar got smart on us in a way that almost blew our minds.
We love Karlie Kloss, we love Oscar de la Renta, and we love that for like the five billionth time in a row (yes, we’re being hyperbolic, but you can’t sue us for it, can you?) Karlie Kloss is the star of Oscar de la Renta’s spring ad campaign.
This was the week Karlie Kloss spoke about her Vogue Italia photos and Lindsay Lohan‘s Playboy spread leaked. This was also the week we got a double dose of Chloë Sevigny, attended some fancy parties, and saw the unveiling of the Pirelli calendar.
If you thought the world of children’s clothing wasn’t fancy enough as it was, you were mistaken. Oscar de la Renta has announced that he will add a line of kiddie size luxury clothing to his still-growing clothing empire.
Pre-fall collections aren’t celebrated with the same amount of sexy, hyper fanfare that main stage spring and fall collections get, and in the case of Oscar de la Renta that’s a damn shame. His pre-fall 2012 collection, presented yesterday in New York City, didn’t feel all that different from a show during Fashion Week.
If there’s one man in fashion who knows what women want, it’s Oscar de la Renta. The designer has been making clothing for women for almost 40 years, and he says in that time his clients have changed. A lot.
To be honest: we were fairly disappointed with Sunday night’s red carpet showing. It was pretty, sure, but basically, we were very, very bored. That said, even the most snoozey awards show has its standouts, and tonight was no exception. From a CW star to an Oscar winner, from Oscar de la Renta to new-to-us Lebanese designer George Hobeika, these six ladies stole the sartorial show.
Justin Timberlake (yes, that Justin Timberlake) made the most cogent statement we’ve heard all week at Oscar de la Renta‘s spring runway show Tuesday evening, where he told us, “When you come to see Oscar’s show, you’re looking for romance.” And no one in the audience had to look very far for that at all.
It’s always somewhat uncomfortable to be a decidedly non famous person milling about on a pre-show runway, waiting for someone actually famous to show up. It was even more awkward at Diane von Furstenberg‘s Spring show Sunday afternoon, when we found ourselves milling about in front of what turned out to be Valentino Garavini‘s front row seat.
Alexander Wang has a thing for vaguely non-traditional advertising — remember those image pieces? — which is why his latest effort doesn’t come as much of a surprise. It also reminds us of many things!
We love Karlie Kloss. We love Oscar de la Renta. But this fall campaign video doesn’t quite work.
While Emma Watson was busy basking in the bronze glow of her show stopping Bottega Veneta number, Sarah Jessica Parker took in the New York premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part Two in a geometric print gown from Oscar de la Renta‘s Resort 2012 collection less than a month after it walked down the runway.
