We were saddened to hear the news of iconic fashion and wedding dress designer Oscar de la Renta’s passing. The renowned designer died aged 82 on Monday at his home in the US. In tribute to this wonderful figure in fashion, we bring you a sneak peek from his 2015 bridal collection.
The stunning gown worn by Amal Clooney at her wedding to George Clooney, below, has been confirmed as a part of Oscar’s 2015 bridal collection. And if you can’t marry George Clooney, and if you can’t get married in Italy, the next best thing is being able to wear Amal Clooney’s dreamy Oscar de la Renta wedding dress, right?
We’re not even kidding — a replica of Amal’s breaktaking off-the-shoulder ivory French lace gown is part of Oscar’s Fall 2015 bridal collection! The nearly-identical wedding dress has the same pearls and diamante stones on the bodice and full skirt — the only differences are that Mrs Clooney’s gown was custom-made and it doesn’t have the same long train.
“It’s the most important dress in the life of a woman,” Oscar de la Renta told Vogue. “Any girl from any walk of life dreams of that special dress, and I try to make that dream a reality for her.”
While we don’t know the price or availability date of the wedding dress yet, we do know that you can also shop Amal’s wedding day makeup look immediately.
“Amal is absolutely beautiful with chic, timeless and understated style,” British makeup guru Charlotte Tilbury, who did Amal’s wedding makeup, told People. “She has the perfect face for makeup: mesmerising, almond-shaped eyes, dark, thick lashes and pillowy, rose lips.”
Oscar de la Renta gowns are available at Helen Rodrigues.
