Woman's Evening Dress and Flower Pin

Fall 2006
Designed by Oscar de la Renta (American and Dominican, 1932–2014) Worn by Mrs. Martin Field (American, 1941–2013)
Rows of ruffles that graduate in size cover a sheer tulle skirt, supported by fifteen underlayers of tulle over an organza slip. Oscar de la Renta completed this frothy ballerina dress with a swirled strapless bodice and flower, and chose an idiosyncratic prune color to downplay the sweetness. Romantic and relaxed, the gown epitomizes his elegant designs, favored by celebrities on the red-carpet.
