Are you feeling post-wedding blues? Because I am. Is it weird? As 3 billion other people, I spent my Saturday in front of the television to watch the royal wedding, and I don’t regret it for a minute – after all, I grew up watching Disney movies. Now I want the fairy tale moment to last a little bit longer so I gathered here some of the best photos from the beautiful day.
Yesterday, the glamorous Venice Film Festival ended. La Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica awarded the movie “The Shape of Water” the Golden Lion; and Charlotte Rampling received the Copa Volpi for Best Actress for the film “Hannah”. But what I’m particularly interested in here (I say here, because I’m a huge fan of movies, but maybe you kind of knew that… ) is who were the best dressed?
Oscar de la Renta makes the news today. Three days ago, he would have turned 84 years old. Five days ago, Peter Copping announced that he would leave the brand immediately. So I thought it would be nice to get to know the late designer a little better!
Oscar de la Renta was born July 22, 1932 in the Dominican Republic and died in Connecticut at the age of 82, after a long battle with cancer. When he was 18, he travelled to Madrid to study painting at the Academy of San Fernando. How did he get into fashion? When he was in Madrid, he was enlisted by Cristobal Balenciaga to sketch for him. Afterwards, he went to Paris and worked at Lanvin; and then he moved to New York in the early 60’s and set up his own label [1,2].
So sorry for the long absence, but things have just been so hectic! I hope your past few weeks were better than mine.
But something did manage to cheer me up: le Festival de Cannes. Some of the most memorable looks happened during the festival’s past editions. So I was very excited to see what was coming up this year!
