Starlets are celebrating the life and accomplishments of the great Oscar de la Renta by taking his gorgeous creations out on the town, and my favorite thus far has to be the Spring 2015 handpainted silk faille dress that Reese Witherspoon wore to yesterday’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event in LA.

Fendi Mini Demi Jour Penguin Bag: March of the Penguinhttp://www.snobessentials.com/2014/10/fendi-penguin-bag-march-of-the-penguin.html http://www.snobessentials.com/2014/10/fendi-penguin-bag-march-of-the-penguin.html#comments Wed, 22 Oct 2014 20:00:38 +0000 http://www.snobessentials.com/?p=64910

Fendi is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to their flirty, often smile-inducing plays on critters and creatures, and now they’ve made the move from monsters to abstracted incarnations of actual animals. This might be too cutesy, but come on, it is pretty darn cute. Moreover, it’s kind of irresistible.

People often ask me to name the consummate turning point in my career, and I always have a definitive answer. I tell them it was when Mr. Oscar de la Renta brought us into the "fashion club" nearly eight years ago. He was the first major designer to take a leap of faith and do so.

I will always love the use of cool hardware, especially on a super-functional tote. The "safety buckle" motif is now almost as famous as the designer himself, Christopher Kane, or at least intrinsically linked to his designs, from his wild, belted dresses from Spring ’07 to this season’s smaller, sleeker bags.

The hoop earring is as generic as it comes - almost as common as the stud. It first appeared roughly four centuries ago in Asia, so I’d say it’s about time we give the style a new look! From prim and proper mini hoops to the shoulder-scraping, there’s been no dearth of sizes, but what about shapes and materials?
