In Oscar De La Renta. Again.

Comment image 16

Last year, Anu Dewan gave us two Oscar De La Renta looks (see here and here) at the HDIL Couture week. This year, Ms. Patel seems to have been bitten by the De La Renta bug because she was spotted in yet another Oscar De La Renta dress from the Fall 2009 collection that she paired with an Oscar De La Renta Minaudiere.

Our biggest complain with this look, how could she pass up the divine Darjeeling minaudiere (see here) for this one. This one is so bleh.

  1. She looks good, individually I love the dress, bag and shoes. But she has the same problem as priyanka, she tends to always looks the same.

  2. Something about her expression is always off. Kills the whole look. Girl needs to exude confidence. Otherwise a million dollar dress won’t do anything for her.

  3. Panty-hose with open toe is in 😉
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Oscar De La Renta, you really can’t go wrong wearing one of his peices. So classic, so feminine, so chic! Even so, Kakashan looks way to uncomfortable to be able to embody that De La Renta look. Plus the shoes are fugly.
    While I do LOVE the Darjeeling, I have to say that I love the 1930’s art deco feel on this even more.
    I think I’ve finally pinned down what bothers me about seeing these socialites wearing all of these high-end labels and mostly falling flat- they don’t really seem to have any passion for the clothes. I think that when you love fashion and design and art, it shows instead of wearing clothes for clothes sake. Maybe that’s just me though, I’m a very passionate person in general (LIKE WALT WHITMAN :D)

    • spot-on pdaervo re: passion! it always shows 🙂 among the few people (featured here) who i think enjoy their clothes and take a personal interest in putting things together individualistically are twinkle and kirron thakur singh (with sarees). that’s a sad tally.

      • Agree,
        a lot of times I wonder if any of these ladies would have picked any of these items however beautiful they are if there was no designer label attached.
        Kiron, Twinkle or even Simone seem to have an eye for beauty, aesthetics because many a times the items they choose are really beautiful ( esp the stmt jewelry ) but are lesser known or no designer names and make me wonder where they would have bought it.

  4. Love the dress and colour-not on her though-maybe its the hunch. Hate her shoes, hair and pose. Love the clutch. She is looking like Sonia Garware in this snap(face wise)

  5. First off it’s not a look if you dont have hair, shoes, accessories together…just because you wear de la renta doesnt make you an instant fashion icon…if fact I’m surprised they even sell it to people who can make such an amazing outfit look so tacky…gold sandals?! yikes! what a waste of an outfit.
