Resort! Resort! Resort!: Oscar de la Renta
For Oscar de la Renta Resort 2009 is all about color and cut. The show, which was held on May 14, 2008 in New York, used a variety of colors to show pieces that screamed Upper East Side elegance in a subtle and beautiful way. The show opened with a stunning gold skirt suit, it was Jackie O and Anna Wintour with a bit of Indian royalty. The colors moved from more fall-esque colors to blues and reds to exquisite black poofy evening gowns.Toward the middle of the show, Mr. de la Renta presented a cocktail dress (above) that blew my mind, it was in this blue and red print that was popped with an air of youth and chicness. The cut of the suits, were much like the cuts of his fall show in February, they were modern without losing his quintessential New York class. Mr. de la Renta's pieces were not for every woman, but this was for that classy luxurious working heiress.
