As soon as the Golden Globe nominations are announced, we start predicting looks for our favorite female nominees. And with the debut of Oscar de la Renta’s pre-fall 2015 collection this week, that hunt for award show gowns got a whole lot easier.
The 34 pieces are part of the last collection bearing the fingerprints of the late designer, who passed away in October at the age of 82. The New York Times reviewed the collection, which was completed by his studio director Laura Kim, and about which Kim said, “We tried to make it like he’s still here with us. We made big ball gowns, like he likes them.” And since Hollywood loves a big ballgown too, we picked three dresses for three Golden Globe-nominated stars to honor his legacy on the red carpet.
