This week has been a rather sad week for the fashion industry and everyone across the globe. For this week we bid farewell to one of the most talented fashion icons, Oscar De La Renta.

As a tribute to this Icon, The Carnelian Cloak has shortlisted five of his best red carpet masterpieces.

1.) Sarah Jessica Parker, Met Gala 2014

One of my personal favorites, has made an appearance in my previous post as well.


It has such a 50’s feel, and SJP carries it with perfect poise. The signature at the gown’s trail makes it an exclusive quirk.

2.) Amy Adams, Oscar 2013

Remember how you always wanted to dress up and step out looking like Cinderella did in the fairy tale?

Guess what? Amy Adams did just that. She wore this dreamy De La Renta gown last year to the Academy Awards.



And maybe we have ourselves a Prince Charming too??



3.) Anne Hathaway, Tony Awards 2009

This is like a cute cross between a bad ass prom dress and a ball gown skirt. Anne Hathaway does it justice with red heels and simple makeup.




4.) Emma Watson, Harry Potter Premier 2012

Watson reminds you of a pixie with this gown. The pairing up with a white tailored jacket gives a definite edge.

5.) Zooey Deschanel, Golden Globe 2013

Zooey came dressed with a Oscar red gown paired with a string of pearls, accessorized with such grace.

One of the simple yet gorgeous gowns.

These were some of my favorites from his many many breathtaking creations. We will miss him spinning magic on and off the red carpet. RIP Oscar.
