Oscar de la Renta Black Sheer Lace Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Intricate and elegant, this black lace dress reminds us of Audrey Hepburn. The piece is constructed from multiple sheets of fine layered sheers - the chest, shoulders, and sleeves are made from a delicate chiffon, the bodice from lace and chiffon with a peach lining, and the skirt from black lace backed with stiff webbing for structure, tulle in black and white for volume, and two linings in peach chiffon and peach silk. The overall effect is gorgeous - by layering subtle diaphanous materials, Oscar de la Renta builds up the piece to form the perfect party dress. You'll always look extraordinary in this exquisite piece.

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.
