Runway Retrospective: Oscar de la Renta

There's something about Oscar de la Renta's clothing that brings out the very best in the women who wear it — and lots of famous ladies, from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to actress Lea Michelle, are among his devoted customers. But on the runway, de la Renta manages to talk to women of all stripes by making the most richly beautiful versions of the things they really need: suits that are professional and playful, coats that are warm and whimsical, and gowns that inspire envy wherever they appear. De la Renta loves classic proportions almost as much as he loves decoration, which means his collections often blend midcentury shapes, lots of embellishments, and plenty of colorful spirit.
