C.2000 Oscar de la Renta Aubergine Silk Taffeta Princess Dress

About

Oh the luxury and opulence of an Oscar de la Renta dress! This beautifully designed gown has an elegant old school look with a good dose of modern sculptural construction. Starting with rich aubergine silk taffeta, Mr. de la Renta formulates a strappy bodice with ruching at the bust and continues with inverted pleating at the skirt to create a bubble style silhouette. Add boning and lining to create stiffness and side pockets for practicality and voila!...party dress fit for a princess. Strappy heels complete the elegant look but consider deconstructing it with booties and a cropped leather jacket for a whole different take on style. Excellent vintage condition. Marked size 8...might also work for a size 6 with attention to the following measurements. Bust 34" Waist 28.5" Full Hips 39" Approximate Shoulder Length Taken on Outside of Straps 11.5" Total Length From Shoulder to Hem 37.25" Length From Shoulder to Waist 14"

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.
