From Hollywood icons to bona fide royalty and more than one First Lady (Jacqueline Kennedy, Laura Bush), Dominican fashion designer Oscar de la Renta had women clamoring for the privilege of wearing his clothes. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is showcasing his life and work through almost 70 ensembles in “The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta” and there’s a local connection. “There are works from our own collection as well as loans from local Houstonians,” says Cindi Strauss, Sara and Bill Morgan Curator of Decorative Arts, Craft and Design, who collaborated with former editor-at-large for Vogue magazine André Leon Talley, and others, in curating the show. This jewel of an exhibit sparkles with antique furniture, paintings and clips of celebrities wearing his clothes.
