Summary: Oscar de la Renta swimwear? Whoa. What’s going on here? Mind you the color-blocked one-piece suits were of course, stunning, but where were the red carpet gowns? Not to worry. They come towards the end of this feast for the eyes. The expected crisp white button-down worn with a flashy skirt and the fitted pantsuits we expect from Oscar de la Renta all made an appearance as well. But what we all wait for are the designer’s drool worthy luxurious red carpet gowns. And as expected, the master delivered. In a word…breathtaking. Now the ladies who lunch can party by the pool in the Hamptons without missing a beat.
