The tonal-navy floral silk-cloqué that's used to craft Oscar de la Renta's strapless gown is a beautifully subtle translation of the Peruvian textiles in Mario Testino's 2013 portrait series. The tiered fluted skirt is brimming with classic femininity and is lent further definition by ruffled panels trimmed with black satin and a graduated curved hem. Opt for jewel-tone heels to emphasise the train.
Known for his extravagant designs and decadent embroidery, Oscar de la Renta presents this stunning navy blue evening gown from the label's Spring/Summer '17 collection. The piece has been fashioned from a lustrous dark navy silk-satin with striking gold sequin floral embellishments that will make you feel like royalty. Designed to flatter the female figure, the dress features a sleeveless cut and a V-neckline with a crossover front. It boasts a rear zip fastening, a fitted waist and a flared skirt with a high-low hemline, a wrap-effect and a dramatic train that is classic Oscar de la Renta.
Oscar de la Renta's pink and black floral-jacquard crepe de Chine gown made its debut on the label's AW16 runway. It's cut with a fitted boned bodice and falls to a voluminous pleated skirt for the most feminine and flattering silhouette. Keep this strapless style in focus with upswept hair.
Fabric and prints found in the Oscar de la Renta archives were the starting point for the Resort 2017 collection. A beautiful pick this raspberry-pink silk gown is cut to a kimono-like silhouette with a waist sash and wide armholes and embroidered across the front with swirling floral blooms. All this special piece needs is a modest pair of heels to complete the look.

Oscar de la Renta's cobalt-blue strapless silk-faille gown was made for glittering evening events. It's flawlessly crafted in the USA with an internal boned bodice to create a sculpted silhouette and turns to reveal a cascading ruffle that spills into the trailing hemline. To finish? It has to be a pair of the label's dazzling earrings.
Peter Copping has brought new verve to the house of Oscar de la Renta and this black and white daisy-print cotton-poplin gown shows his fresh perspective on a classic silhouette.
