Oscar de la Renta Royal Purple Floral Gown


It's hard to overstate the magnificence of this gown! Royal purple lends a very grand and regal look. While the extremely intricate and exquisite embellishments that cover the gown make it feel sumptuous, it still stays young. An abundance of beaded silk flowers and pleated ribbons look like butterflies on the gorgeous silk fabric. A stiff layer of horsehair mesh gives the skirt an elegant flare while simultaneously emphasizing the trim waist of the dress. Part of the fall 2015 collection, this piece was worn down the runway, and it's truly fit for a queen.

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.
