I liked Oscar de la Renta whole lot more than I expected to, despite his recent comments on the state of American fashion. [Honestly he should give it a rest about Michelle Obama. She already has a wonderful developed sense of style. She’s never worn and probably won’t wear your designs. Get over it already.] Usually he’s a little too conservative for me. For this collection he has pops of color and quirky ruffle rusching along with some fairytale voluminous skirted gowns thrown in. I appreciate the infusion of youthful patterns and the dramatic flair of the gowns. His clothes are elaborate, highly embellished and just a tad playful, something I didn’t anticipate coming from de la Renta. Not to mention those rocks are no joke; those earrings must weigh a ton (even if they can’t possibly be real).
