R.I.P Oscar de la Renta… A Visual Tribute Of Some Of My Personal Favourite Oscar de la Renta Moments And Creations…

I’m not interested in shock tactics. I just want to make beautiful clothes,”- Oscar de la Renta  1963

For more than five decades, his commitment to feminine elegance made the designer an unwavering favorite not only among first ladies but also on red carpets. “His clothes have been to more awards shows than Meryl Streep,” Michael Bloomberg joked when presenting the designer with a Couture Council lifetime achievement award in 2012—a dramatic understatement. In fact, it’s hard to think of an A-list actress he didn’t dress. Over the years, everyone from Sandra Bullock, Scarlett Johansson, Kerry Washington, and Amy Adams has worn his gowns proudly on the red carpet. He was one of my personal favourite designers, I drew inspiration from his creations from a young age when my love affair with fashion began. De la Renta’s Spring collection, shown in early September, was one of his loveliest that I can recall, set against a backdrop of soft pink flowers. It was feminine and lush with color, with one sensational ensemble after another. Karlie Kloss put it best: “There is no one on earth who makes a woman feel more beautiful than Oscar de la Renta.” Earlier this month, the house hired Peter Copping of Nina Ricci as creative director.

Here are some of my personal favourite Oscar de la Renta moments and creations…
