IN OSCAR DE LA RENTA WE TRUST…
When you hear the name: Oscar de la Renta, what comes into your mind?
Classic, elegant, unique, and beautiful are some words that might be worthy of describing his designs.
But why does everyone really love Oscar de la Renta and the clothing that he creates? Oscar De La Renta is truly an American icon in the world of fashion. Everything he creates is a work of art. Each dress is hand beaded and embroidered to give it a unique quality you just can’t find anywhere else. His style is modern, but still has a feminine quality that appeals to many different tastes and styles.
His unique method of making clothing has enticed and intrigued women of all ages ever since he launched his first ready to wear label in 1965. Since then, De La Renta has branched out and has brought his aesthetic to the creation of his own line of shoes, accessories, perfume, home ware, and even children’s clothing. Whether you are looking to fill your closet or decorate your home, De la Renta has what you desire.
Oscar de la Renta’s designs are very well known for being popular amongst first ladies. He has dressed first ladies Nancy Ragan, Jackie O, and even Laura Bush. Hilary Clinton was perhaps the most well-known for being dressed by Oscar de la Renta and they became very close friends. Most famously she wore his dresses to her husband’s second inaugural ball, and to other political events. De la Renta really caused Clinton to become interested in fashion and to start taking risks with what she wore. Our current first lady, Michelle Obama has yet to wear any of De la Renta’s gowns, but hopefully they will collaborate together soon!
Celebrities are also well known for being fans of Oscar de la Renta’s designs. If you truly want to make a statement on the red carpet, De la Renta is the designer for you. His designs are usually seen being worn by celebrities at the Oscars, Academy Awards or movie premieres. Emma Watson wore one of my favorite De la Renta designs at her final Harry Potter Movie Premiere. Jessica Chastain, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Alba are also just a few other celebrities who love to embrace De la Renta designs on the red carpet. Whenever a celebrity wears a De la Renta Gown, you can be sure they will have all eyes on them!
If you won’t be walking down the red carpet anytime soon, maybe a walk down the aisle would be better suited for you to wear a gown from De la Renta. Many women dream about walking down the aisle one day wearing a stunning white De la Renta bridal gown. Oscar de la Renta puts as much beauty into his bridal dresses as he does with his red carpet gowns. Some are have very classic styles with lace sleeves and A-line skirts, but others shy away from tradition with peplum skirts, and blue tulle. They are expensive of course, but this is the only wedding day you will ever have! (Hopefully) So go ahead, splurge a little, it will be worth the money!
