Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2013 collection will delight those ladies who lunch and celebs who aren’t afraid of bold colours.
Aquamarine, fuchsia pink, bright yellow and blue were the standout colours along with white, black and grey.
The one thing I never expected to see at an Oscar de la Renta show was latex, but it worked with Karlie Kloss opening in a red latex tank and white slit pencil skirt. Look 24, one of my faves, was an emerald latex tank and skirt paired with a shocking pink embroidered jacket which will appeal to a younger crowd (Lea Michele immediately springs to mind).
This crowd will also love the pink feather-accented bustier with cocktail shorts and the latex leather rose-accented top paired with light pink shorts.
Models with colour-streaked bouffants took to the runway in a variety of looks ranging from classic tweed suits, jumpsuits, a (to-die-for) safari gilet paired with linen pants, shift dresses, pant suits and a beaded tunic paired with matching pants.
I was in heaven as the gorgeous evening gowns floated past my feet. Feminine confections including strapless ballgowns, crushed tulle gowns, beaded and tassel ornament-accented gowns and simple gowns with light ruffles will delight the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Biel.
Key accessories included mini clutches which I at first mistook for iPhone covers, satin ‘Hudson’ sandals, the must-have ‘Charlotte’ laser-cut booties, resin flower necklaces, brooches and dazzling jewels.
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Biel, Jessica Chastain, Anna Wintour, Hilary Swank, Penelope Cruz, Kristin Davis, Lea Michele, Jessica Alba, Emily Blunt, Camilla Belle, Elle Fanning, Dakota Fanning, Taylor Swift and Kate Becksinsale
