Oscar dela Renta: He is ze man!

One Lazy Afternoon. An ode to Renta with my eeinie mini minnie knowledge on using lasso and all.

I just loved the Spring/Summer Collection of Oscar dela Renta for 2011. I felt the craftmanship was speaking with each outfit that walked down the ramp. How every dress and look was guarded with perfection was breathtakingly outstanding. I was literally gasping as I kept on clicking the 'next' button at this website of Vogue. Yeah, honestly, literally. What Renta has forseen for the next season of fashion is very clean, clear and minimalist and very feminine, posh. It epitomises what every inch of a real Lady should look like. Very obediently dressed for a formal event. I loved loved his collection. His clothes has given me a different perspective of the summer of 2011. Nothing ragged. Gosh, why do I feel like just by using words like ragged with untidy the looks. Haha,,, how amusingly careful am I getting.

Although it was quite difficult for me to select 'the' best ones amongst the best ones but I had to choose a few of my favourites, from which I whittled it down to six looks. And with those you have the tacky work by me done above. I'm still not satisfied with what I made out of the pictures available, I will be working on it this coming weekend and have you sneek at it for some acceptance. 

Meanwhile, enjoy the review below by Nicole Phelps for Style

Oscar dela Renta has never made any apologies for catering to the upper tiers of the upper crust, and why should he? But his reliance on certain posh props (updos and heavy eye makeup on the models, an ostrich bag filled with fresh-cut flowers, a soundtrack of doo-wop hits by the Platters) made today's somewhat uneven collection feel more old-fashioned than it might otherwise have. Mixed in among the ladylike tweeds, windowpane plaids, and raffia embroidered linen were a pair of genuinely fresh shibori print frocks in relaxed away-from-the-body silhouettes. For cocktail hour, there were a fair number of modern options, from a strapless number in navy gazar embroidered with black organza to a white swansdown tutu with a black faille bodice, the latter of which seemed to thrill front-row star Sarah Jessica Parker. And, as ever, de la Renta's gowns were something to marvel at, especially the black mermaid dress with the one flounced shoulder strap and the ivory threadwork embroidery layered over a peony pink column. On the other hand, numbers like the celadon silk faille with the pink carnation appliqu├ęs and matching bolero erred too retro and over-the-top. At his best, de la Renta has a more subtle touch.
