Born in the Dominican Republic, educated in Spain, trained by Cristóbal Balenciaga and friends with the late Diana Vreeland, Oscar de la Renta is basically a legend in his own time. His designs are always poised, refined, classic, elegant and timeless, and his collection for Spring 2009 absolutely delivers. These are incredibly sophisticated, lady-like visions for women of class and rank. Fit for a First Lady! The hardest part when looking through the strapless gowns is deciding which is the most divine.
