Inspiration: Oscar de la Renta

As a personal stylist, I receive almost every fashion magazine available in the United States. As I was reading through Vogue’s September 2013 issue, there was a photo of former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in a stunning Oscar de la Renta gown. The caption was “Oscar de la Renta: an American Icon”. I went onto the clintonpresidentialcenter.org to view a few of his beautiful, iconic, creations.

Oscar De La Renta: American Icon Reception

What really excited me, was that one of the featured dresses, which I believe there were only five made in the world, was one that a client and myself agreed was going to be the dress for her July 2013 wedding.

I love the way Oscar de la Renta creates a very feminine clothing silhouette.  He highlights a female figure in a way that attracts so many women to wear his clothing, and feel elegant and “girlie”.
