Oscar de la Renta

Having been such a fan of the Oscar de la Renta dress worn by Cameron Diaz at the Oscars I thought I would take a closer look at the designers bridal range.

Born Oscar Aristides Renta Fiallo on July 22 1932, Oscar studied painting in Madrid where he began to take more of an interest in sketching and quickly attracted the attention from top fashion houses. This earned him an apprenticeship with Cristobal Balenciaga who is famous for couture pieces. He then moved to Paris as an apprentice for Lanvin before working for Elizabeth Arden in New York.

After Elizabeth Arden, he went to work for Jane Derby Ltd, where the clothes lables read "Oscar de la Renta for Jane Derby". In 1969, after Derby's death, he took over the company and renamed it Oscar de la Renta.

While all of the dresses from the Spring 2010 bridal collection are totally beautiful, here are a few of my favorites. Check out the rest of the collection at Oscar de la Renta Bridal.
