When in doubt, wear Oscar de la Renta.

The designer specialised in beautiful, elegant, red-carpet dresses. And Hollywood’s A-list knew it.

Every awards season, his full skirted glamorous gowns stole the show. Show-stopping, but never showy.

Worn by celebrities and First Ladies alike, from Rihanna to Amy Adams, from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama, De la Renta was the go-to label for the big occasion.

And as for how to wear his dresses, you can’t get better than this gem from the man himself: ‘Walk like you have three men walking behind you.’
