Jewelry hounds, my favorite designer has done it again.What would we red carpet watchers do without our Fashion Week Oscar de la Renta fix? Yes, this same Oscar who gave us Carrie Bradshaw’s stunning couture moment in the final Paris episode and oodles of Award Show memories.
His Spring 2010 collection was full of color and didn’t skimp on the bling, perhaps because his clientele includes some of the world’s wealthiest women – from icons like Barbara Walters to all those New York ladies who lunch.
For we mere mortals, it’s fun to gawk at the glamour.I am loving his tangerine touches, from simple sheath dresses to coral brooch accents.
And if you thought yellow gold was on its way out – think again.The runway sparkled with gold circle statement necklaces and earrings in addition to over-the-top chandelier shapes that would make Liberace blush.
And those red carpet gowns!How much would you die to see that pink number at the Emmys this weekend? Or, say, Angelina or Megan Fox in that black number?
Thank you, Oscar.For making me a covet-thy-fashionista pile of drool yet again.And for keeping Valentino-esque glamour alive (if you haven’t seen the Valentino documentary, Valentino: The Last Emporer, put it at the top of your Netflix queue tout de suite!) .
Which designer makes you want to sell your first born for a chance at greatness? Weigh in!
