The charming forever youthful and handsome couture designer knows what a woman needs to look GLAMOUROUS and FEEL outstanding. 
No one has dressed women with such a high regard to our feminine charms than Oscar de la Renta. 

Here is a selection of some of my favourite taffeta fashions. 

Let the rustling begin........
