Whether it’s a movie premiere or a major awards ceremony, the late Oscar de la Renta continues to impact Hollywood, with everyone from Regina King to Naomi Campbell donning his stunning designs on the red carpet six years after his demise.
De la Renta’s feminine and flattering pieces didn’t just inspire the women of showbiz but also several former first ladies, including Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Obama, who not too long ago wore the designer’s incredible embroidered magenta and violet dress during an excursion to meet Queen Elizabeth II for lunch at Buckingham Palace in 2016.
Having dressed almost every A-list celebrity in Hollywood, de la Renta is considered one of the most important figures in fashion, so it’s no surprise to see that celebs still rush at the chance of getting to wear his stunning pieces on the red carpet.
Mother-of-two and billionaire heiress Nicky Hilton was all about the glitz and glam when she arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, donning a Spring 2020 metallic gown with a thigh-high split that accentuated the 36-year-old’s toned legs. She accompanied the de la Renta dress with a pair of matching open-toe strappy heels while her hair was perfectly tied into a backcombed up do, which only added to the elegance she oozed while gracefully posing for photos on the red carpet.
Scarlett Johansson showed up and showed out at the TIFF premiere of her film, Marriage Story, in a strapless floral-patterned mini dress from the Resort 2020 line. She kept things relatively simple with minimal accessories while opting for a pair of light blue perspex toe heels and ankle straps which perfectly matched her choice of earrings of a similar shade for the prestigious event.
'Star Wars' actress Daisy Ridley looked phenomenal when she attended the British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in February in a Fall 2020 dark teal gown that was attached with a sheer cape.
Regina King made a bold statement at the premiere of Watchmen when she stunned at the event wearing a black cutout silk-taffeta gown from de la Renta’s Spring 2020 collection. The creative ensemble included a wrapped halter neck with two front panels which overlapped enough to create a triangle, allowing King to flaunt her toned midriff.
Evan Rachel Wood looked elegant in a romantic Spring 2020 tulle dress that perfectly accentuated her slender figure while additionally complementing the look with a nude satin pump for the Los Angeles premiere of Frozen II.
