Oscar De La Renta Spring Collection Runway Review: Modern Day Fairytale

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011 Runway Show Review
~*~Modern Day Fairytale~*~

Mix together some extravagant frills, giant jewels and stilettos and you have an Oscar de la Renta runway show that leaves you dreaming you were invited to a grand ball at which an Oscar de la Renta gown was the only attire  acceptable......(it is a disappointing drift back down to reality!)

Spring is going to be beautiful! Oscar de la Renta uses floral prints often throughout the show, in some outfits even crocheting  flower designs into cardigans and dresses! I think this flowery touch adds a huge dose of delicacy to the clothes. A flower is really known for its delicate and gentle appearances and those vibes were really a big part of the show because of how present they were in the gowns and dresses themselves!

I was personally really excited to see the ballgowns. I love fancy and frilly things and this collection had a lot of dresses that were very much that style! I think that part of the "ballgown essence" is that over-the-top, luxurious look and that is really captivated in this show! Coco Rocha wore one of my favourite dresses in the collection. The black and white dress was sophisticated and the large puffy skirt was gorgeous! All of the ball gowns had exquisite detail and reminded me of a modern day fairytale!

Hair and makeup for this show was very sophisticated! Lips were done in nude colour and skin was left in natural tones but the eye makeup had a lasting effect! The models had either a blue.green eyeshadow or a black/grey eyeshadow. Both alternatives were very beautiful and complimented the clothes very nicely. Hair was parted down the center and twisted into a high bun at the crown of the head, this style had a very regal feel to it.

In conclusion I absolutely loved the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011 runway show. One of my favourite aspects of the show was the colour hues which were ranging from tropical to pastel! In the words of Oscar himself "fashion is only fashion until a women puts it on" something tells me Oscar de la Renta might be one of the most fashionable designers around then.....because lots of women will be dying to "put on" his clothes!
