2009 Resort Lace Watteau Oscar De La Renta Dress

About

This dress was Look 44 on the 2009 Resort Runway Collection. At the time, Oscar quoted to Style dot com "It's a very happy collection", and indeed it was, filled with spectacular pieces like this. The dress is a sleeveless shift-style dress fashioned from sheer layers of black and nude silk chiffon with top layers of black silk tulle. The outer layer is a black tulle outer with a fabulous applique of square black "sequins" mixed with squares of layered black organza and a crinkled chiffon fabric that runs over the entire dress top to bottom. Additionally there are glossy black square and round faceted bead/crystal accents giving the entire dress a subtle sparkle. A wide black grosgrain bow sits at waist and I love how this goes through the sides and actually hooks around the waist of the wearer inside the dress. The allows the back to have that incredible volume and beautiful "watteau" effect that adds the perfect amount of drama. The sheerness allows you to style it numerous ways from a simple nude slip, to adding color or going very daring and wearing boy shorts and a bra under it that are meant to be seen for a more edgy feel. Feather light. In unworn, excellent condition. Unlined and closes with a back hidden zipper. The silk grosgrain ribbon "belt" fastens with hook and eye closure s at the back inside the dress. Beautifully finished Bust: 17-19" flat across from side seam to side seam Interior band at waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 38" from shoulder to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.

About Oscar De La Renta (Manufacturer)

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
