From Sarah Jessica Parker to Karlie Kloss, we chart the most beautiful celebrities wearing Oscar de la Renta dresses...
Oscar de la Renta, the man who once declared ‘I’m not interested in shock tactics, I just want to make beautiful clothes,’ has pretty much dressed every major starlet on the planet since he found fashion fame in the 1960s.
Originally known for dressing First Lady Jackie Kennedy in his couture creations, Mr de la Renta steadily built his occasionwear empire over 50 years, turning women from Beyonce to Amy Adams into red carpet-ready swans.
His signature gowns (The volume! The feathers! The ruffles!) have proven to be timeless, world class style investments, and the status of being an ‘Oscar bride’ in one of the designer’s wedding dresses has appealed to everyone from Amal Clooney to Allison Williams.
Both Sarah Jessica Parker and her iconic character Carrie Bradshaw have forever been obsessed with the designer’s confections, with the Sex And The City writers dedicating an entire episode to Carrie’s boyfriend, Aleksandr Petrovsky, buying her an OdlR dress – a true marker of the brand’s significance to popular culture.
Former Nina Ricci designer Peter Copping took over the creative direction of the label in 2014, just before the icon died on 20th October, and is continuing the designer’s work in style, bringing fans including Karlie Kloss and Emma Stone along for his new era.
