Oscar de la Renta at New York Fashion Show

Tonight was the Oscar de la Renta night!


Peter Copping, Oscar de la Renta’s handpicked successor, made his runway debut. On one side of the catwalk arrayed to the left and right of Oscar’s widow, Annette, were dames like Barbara Walters, Nancy Kissinger, Mica Ertegun, and Anne Bass.

De la Renta and Copping were to have worked side by side, but de la Renta’s death, just days after Copping was appointed last October, prevented that. Copping left a type-written note on each seat: “I am immensely proud to have been chosen as the creative director of Oscar de la Renta,” he began. “Unfortunately things did not go according to our plans and I never had the chance to work with Oscar, which is something I deeply regret.”

But if the fit on those numbers wasn’t quite as finessed as longtime Oscar followers remember, Copping demonstrated his deft sense of color—midnight blue and violet, chartreuse and bordeaux—and a special eye for detail.

There was a lot of poise in that gown. All things considered, this was a graceful start.
