(NEW YORK) Oscar de la Renta
We're hearing some major Oscar buzz, and it's not of the gold statue variety. On Tuesday, Oscar de la Renta gathered a packed house at his 42nd Street showroom to debut his much talked-about Fall '13 collection. On everyone's mind? The effects of that three-week in-house residency de la Renta offered to disgraced former Dior designer, John Galliano. The answer came in the form of nipped-waist jackets atop knee-grazing skirts slightly reminiscent of the iconic Dior Bar silhouette, not to mention those cloche hats pulled over darkly-shaded eyes. Sublime. Later, a stash of de la Renta staples paraded out, from a toile-print day dress to a black organza number with white floral embroidery, to the show-closing silk faille ball gown with gold bullion embroidery worn by Karlie Kloss. Galliano's temporary stint may be coming to a close, but we're guessing this is only the beginning.
