Oscar de la Renta Page 2
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”.
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.
