Oscar de la Renta's Brides: Beyond Beautiful!
Today, Oscar de la Renta debuted his bridal collection at New York’s Bridal Fashion Week. The result? The stuff dreams are made of (engaged status optional). Looks ran the gamut from a southern belle-style blue and ivory silk organza floral embroidered gown with white tulle opera gloves, to a pretty in pink princess tulle gown with organza floral applique. Also on the ‘I Do’-ready roster: simple exercises in chic, like a Carolyn Bessette-style ivory silk crepe cowl back gown, or a silk Mikado gown with a tasteful take on the plunging neckline. Of course, there was plenty of lace to go around. To wit: an ivory silk faille sweetheart gown with a stunning floral Chantilly lace overlay.
Amidst the flowing lace, organza, and tulle that floated down the runway, the designer sent out a few darling flowergirls to sweetly sprinkle the Spring runway. Les petites filles wore frocks of the ivory pleated-silk organza and ruffled variety, as well as ivory silk faille butterfly applique dresses, all of which were crowned with bows and floral halos. The effect? Angelic, and compounding on the ethereal, pristine perfection of de la Renta’s latest walk down the aisle.
