Object of Desire: Oscar de la Renta Strapless Mermaid Gown

November 2, 2011


There are no words to describe this Oscar de la Renta Strapless Mermaid gown.  From the sculptural bust to the dramatic mermaid train, the dress belongs in my closet for a night at the opera followed by a high rolling charity event in Manhattan.  I can never say no to a well placed bow, this one is at the base of the Strapless Mermaid Gown and I am loving.  Of course the gown retails at Bergdorf Goodman for $5,999, which means it makes my list of objects to desire.  I know someone will be rocking this on the red carpet during awards season, perhaps Sofia Vergara or Nicole Kidman.

Here is the description from Bergdorf Goodman of this lavish dress:

Conveying a sense of sweeping movement with feminine finesse, this Oscar de la Renta gown impresses with an instinctively chic fit-and-flare mermaid silhouette and floor-grazing train. Style with a metallic minaudiere and your favorite Oscar de la Renta tassel earrings for a timely feel.
