Every fashion week the biggest highlight for me is entering the world of a designer whose aesthetic is so composed, his collections always so utterly beautiful I have a hard time leaving at the end of the show. I am speaking of Oscar de la Renta, a man that is a permanent fixture of both the fashion world and the American design world.

Icy blues and pale pinks glided down the runway for Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012, some with so much volume that the gowns took over the entire width of the runway. We were taken into a fairy-tale world where Cinderella met the embellishment Queen. Simple yet gorgeous headbands adorned with crystals held back full, wispy hair, and ladylike shoes pranced down the runway. The fishnet stockings were an unexpected addition but they worked so beautifully against the femininity of the clothing.

Most important to note is that the bags from Oscar de la Renta are taking a major stride forward, with a much more contemporary-cool feel. Structured clutches offset with fur and stone accents added a modern touch to the collection. Oscar never lets us down and the success of the collection could well be seen from the applause and smiles across everyone’s faces, including Anna Wintour’s, during the show’s finale.

    Absolutely gorgeous, both of you really did a great job capturing the backstage essence.

    The fashions are so classic, and I don’t think there is one of us that wouldn’t love to wear that big pink pouffy gown just once, sigh …  Thank you for sharing!

    The princess/ladies who lunch looks go beautifully with the fishnets. I like the tiara hairpieces, too.
