CRUSH OF THE WEEK – OSCAR DE LA RENTA

Tuesday November 6 2012.

by

Oscar De La Renta Spring 2013 a show that continued the designer’s recent run of mixing glamourous couture with quirky styling. Sassy models stormed the runway with bright colour streaks in their hair and oversized, Pat Butcher worthy earrings. My favourite gown and this week’s bridal worthy crush features the most elaborate gilver embroidery over a simple duped hem silhouette.

WEAR IT WITH

Instead of a pink streak in your hair how about a pair of pink bejewelled heels.  After all a dipped hem is all about showing off the footwear!.  Make up should be soft with a light flush of blusher and glossed lip.  Instead of Oscar De La Renta’s doorknocker earrings, take the look from runway to aisle with a beautiful side tiara and chunky diamond cuff.  To carry through that quirky fashion edge why not carry a bouquet of bubble balloons in matching silver instead of flowers?  And finally with so much skin on display you may want to apply a dash of Fake Bake 60 min self tanning spray.

SOUNDTRACK

There is only one chick who embodies the type of quirky cool this Oscar De La Renta dress warrants, and that is Debbie Harry.  I’ve picked the Blondie pop hit with a dark side ‘One Way or Another’ certainly a quirky alternative to your typical Wedding tracks.
