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.

Color Palette: white, khaki, taupe, yellow, orange, pink, purple, red, chartreuse, blue, navy, grey, silver, mercury, black

Key Looks: khaki, grey and navy color-blocked one-piece swimsuit; white blouse with navy and taupe skirt; chartreuse Jackie O skirt suit; navy bowed and belted cocktail sheath; white coat with navy harlequin embroidery and strapless peplum gown; brocade short-sleeve sway-back coat; black and white embroidery gown; painterly floral print silk faille strapless gown; fluid silver strapless evening gown.
