What Brought Anna Wintour Down South?

Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour Anna WintourHigh style goes south! This week, Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) founder and president Paula Wallace welcomed Anna Wintour, Annette de la Renta, Erika Bearman, Bryanboy, and a small, chic crowd hit up the first posthumous exhibition of Oscar de la Renta’s work, comprised of 50 sumptuous dresses curated by Andre Leon Talley at the SCAD Museum of Art, which won the American Institute of Architect’s highest award for design last year. The party was a fundraiser for the museum. We’re told that before the guests arrived, there was a private (and undoubtedly emotional) walk-through of the exhibition by Wintour, Annette de la Renta, Leon Talley, Wallace and a small group. The room included a large “O” for Oscar made of roses above an archway. “With Oscar de la Renta, you always felt life was lived in the sun,” ALT said. “He loved his family and filled life with beauty from his gardens, his collections, paintings and music. He loved to sing.” If you misplaced your invitation to see these de la Renta creations worn by Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey, First Ladies Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton, and many more, visit the museum (www.SCADMOA.org) now through May 3 or check out the upcoming book about the exhibition by ALT from Skira Rizzoli.
