It has been awhile since a first look impressed me that deeply. I usually feel drawn to the last looks , gorgeous dresses made for unforgettable evenings and nights. But Oscar de la Renta definitely hit the mark this time. Love, love it. A rich sunflower yellow gown with lots of drama going on in the skirt, topped with a top with black lace. Actually, the three first looks belong together: Sunflower yellow gown with black lace top, a green skirt with a black lace top, a poppy red gown under a lovely white lace shirt (so stunning!).
After such a great opening the white lace dresses were a letdown. Of course, they are pretty but they seem unexciting, too. There is this print which I adore: It looks like blades of grass upside down. Such a great idea! Even if there aren’t any pleads this particular print suggests such.
In addition to the bold and bright pieces there are two which caught my eye. One, a soft pink ball gown with black flowers stitched on, big puffy sleeves, lovely detail at the neckline. So princess-like. The other one doesn’t even look like a dress. More like white sea-foam or clouds wrapped around. Ethereal.
