17 Recent Oscar de la Renta Runway Moments Where His Fashion Genius Completely Asserted Itself
Iconic fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has died at 82. De la Renta's death leaves a huge hole in the fashion world and it's one that won't be easily filled. That kind of genius comes around once in a generation. That said, the de la Renta legacy will most certainly live on. Oscar de la Renta's fabulous designs are unforgettable and his genius will be remembered fondly for ages.
Some of the brand's most recent runway looks are proof of that fact.
There will never be another Oscar! Have a look at 17 times his clothing was art on display in recent runway shows.
Polka Dot Fantasy
This strapless, sweetheart neckline dress with a polka dot print is so princess-like without being too girly.
Asymmetry At Its Finest
This frock is deceptively simple. The full, asymmetrical skirt makes it a true style standout. What woman, no matter her personal stye, wouldn’t want to wear this dress and add a variety of accessories that make it her own? It’s a flawless base on which to build.
Modern Flapper Girl
The movement of this fringed flapper girl dress would inspire any wearer to dance the night away. It’s so Daisy Buchanan, but it’s also crazy modern.
Will You Marry Me?
Here’s another example of what the de la Renta brand does best: crafts feminine dresses and gowns without being too frilly or too fussy.
Warrior bride! This is a simple and lovely frock. If she roughed it up a bit, Daenerys from Game of Thrones could totally own this.
This Is A Total J. Law Dress
While Jennifer Lawrence is loved (and contracted) up with Dior, isn’t this a total J. Law dress? Am I right or am I right? She favors this silhouette and it would look flawless on her.
And This Is So Michelle Obama
I could totally see the FLOTUS wearing this pretty, spring-ready frock at the Easter Egg event at the White House.
Did He Design This With Rihanna In Mind?
This stripped, black and white mini has Rihanna’s name written all over it. It’s the feathery skirt that plays to RiRi’s style.
Anything But Basic Black
This anything-but-basic black power suit is what you wear when you want to project the image of a girl boss.
Volume! Volume! Volume!
The coral color and the poufy volume of the skirt make this gown to die for.
Ariana Grande Should Wear This Dress
Ariana Grande is known for her frilly, floral, and puff skirt dresses at red carpet events. Yes, she was as criticized for the oft-repeated look as she has been for her seemingly unchanging hair. This dress is similar to her favored style, but with a more sophisticated silhouette.
Emma Stone's Stylist Needs To Get A Hold Of This
This zig-zag pattern dress would totally fit Emma Stone and her style. Her stylist needs to get their hands on this frock, pronto.
Another example of a frock that any dress-loving fashionista would sever a limb to wear or own. Selena Gomez’s tawny skin and glossy chocolate hair would seriously pop against this electric blue party frock.
Wedding Cake Dreams
Even if you are so anti wedding dresses that make the bride look like she should be perched atop a wedding cake, you cannot deny the breath stealing nature of this frothy fashion confection.
Tougher Than Leather
Many designers have co-opted the punk rock aesthetic. Some to amazing results and others to disastrous ones. This falls into the former category, even with its ’80s shape.
Jane Austen Chic
Gwyneth Paltrow could have worn this dress in Emma. It’s throwback-y Jane Austen chic, but so wearable.
Calling Taylor Swift
This ’60s-inspired, mod-like dress, with its statement collar, should be in Taylor Swift’s closet.
