Vintage Oscar de la Renta Baby Blue Silk Taffeta Gown Ensemble
Oscar de la Renta is one of the most iconic names in fashion. His luxurious and versatile designs evolved over decades inspiring awe and showcasing the beauty of the women who wore them. Known for his superb evening and bridal gowns, de la Renta is a fashion staple for a classic, sophisticated look.
Done in a docile baby blue silk taffeta, this late-1980s evening ensemble is comprised of a separate skirt and bodice. Exquisitely fitted, the bodice has a V-neckline that is accentuated by a series of ruffles that border the top from collar to hem. These ruffles are also repeated around the armholes adding a textural element to the sleek and semi-lustrous taffeta.
Sitting promptly on the waistline, the skirt front falls straight down to its ankle-length hem ending with yet another border of ruffles. The skirt molds to the hips creating an hourglass silhouette. On the back, the skirt features one of de la Renta’s signature bustle insets that creates an elegant train for the skirt. This beautiful ensemble makes for a seamless gown that is full of charm with a touch of historic flair.
