I wanted to pay tribute to the beautiful life and work of Oscar De La Renta. He had the most beautiful vision and made dresses that were not only flattering to woman but were the essence of every fairy tale she has of fashion come to life. He was the godfather of fashion. Along with the great Valentino and Givenchy, he was a remnant of an era gone by. An era when a woman wore one dress all night on her wedding, not two, because that one dress embodied all her hopes and dreams and could NEVER be out done by another dress. His designs were not about being weird or avant-garde, they were about elegance and beauty and always being kind to a women’s body and what she wants to wear. I can only dream of wearing one of his creations someday.
The following as some of my favorite Oscar wedding creations. May his work live on and his memory shine on forever.
It’s officially wedding season! And that goes for celebrities as well. We’ve already seen Kim K get married and sources say Jessica Simpson is getting married on the 4th of July. So this occasion calls for a mimosa toast and a rehash of the chicest celebrity wedding dresses of all time.
Celebrities always push the fashion envelope and it’s no surprise their wedding dress is no exception. The following stars were not only chic and stylish but their dresses are still inspirations for brides to this day.
1. Grace Kelly, 1956
I couldn’t make this list and not put Grace Kelly at the top. The Hollywood star’s wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco is the stuff dreams are made of. The dress was made by MGM Studios and is still the pinnacle of princess wedding elegance to this day. We dream of becoming a princess on our wedding day and she actually did!
