Last Tuesday I mentioned I was headed to Dallas to see the Oscar de la Renta exhibit at the Bush Center. I loved it!! I really didn’t know what to expect other than some gorgeous dresses but it was pretty amazing to get see some dresses I’ve already drooled over (think Oscars, Met Gala, etc.) in person! Sorry in advance for the photo quality. I didn’t expect to be able to take photos so I didn’t bring my “real” camera!
Remember Taylor Swift’s Met Gala dress this year?
And Karlie Kloss’s:
Jennifer Garner at the Oscars:
And Amy Adams at the Met Gala this year:
He also did the dress Ann Hatheway wore while hosting the Oscars a few years back:
I was really excited to see a few of Anna Wintour’s items she had loaned for the exhibit. (If you don’t know who Anna Wintour is, watch The September Issue immediately. )
And this is a dress he made for Anna to wear to a party he threw for her. A party and a dress? What a guy.
I loved this grouping. The one on the far right was worn by Sarah Jessica Parker. I think it might be my favorite out of all of them.
A few others:
There was also a nice collection of First Lady dresses. It was kind of fun to see the dresses and guess which FL they belonged too. These were Nancy Reagan’s.
A few sketches:
Overall, it was a fantastic exhibit and I’m even more in awe now of the amazing Oscar de la Renta. If you find yourself in the Dallas area (or live close enough for a road trip) you won’t be disappointed! The exhibit is there until Oct. 5, so hurry!
