Oscar de la Renta Black Embellished Cocktail Dress with Bows

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Oscar de la Renta knows how to make a statement - his long career of producing beautiful and unique formalwear attests to this talent. This piece is never short on embellishment - abstract shapes swim across the bodice, punctuated with plenty of sequins, while the skirt features a wild assortment of fraying fabric pieces sewn onto a sheer backing. The front of the dress is decorated with a series of big satin bows, adding a fancy and feminine touch. All the embellishment adds to the dress to create a beautiful and consistent fabulous look.

About Oscar de la Renta

    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.
