On the Lake

Monday 13, August 2012 - 3:00 am | Travel Journal


I’ve been looking forward to this event all summer! One of my favorite places in the world, Lake Tahoe – hosting another favorite of mine, an Oscar de la Renta fashion show to benefit The League To Save Lake Tahoe.

I was not disappointed. Oscar de la Renta’s Resort 2013 Collection is amazing . . . Beautiful shades of bright blue, vibrant reds and graphic black & white prints on gorgeous gowns and dresses paraded the beachside runway.

The colors . . . The beautiful silhouettes . . . The printed & embroidered fabrics — with Lake Tahoe’s blue sky and navy water  . . . all paired for a backdrop that was tough to beat.

CHRISTIES hosted the live auction — a successful fundraiser for KeepTahoeBlue.org, the group dedicated to protecting and restoring the scenic beauty of the lake, while Eliza Reed Bolen, Oscar’s daughter — hosted the event telling the crowd that her father sends his love and was sorry to miss his favorite summer party.

Between the fashion, the crowd and the beautiful venue it was hard to decide where to focus my lens . . . However, there was time to Shazam the music from the show though . . . Grace Jones ‘La Vie En Rose‘ . . . talk about absolute perfection!

    Hope to be present at one such event next year. I am new to the thoe area as a resident and thought the area rather devoid of a fashion scene. This is a refreshing surprise. I do hope Tahoe has its very own fashion week!

    Beautiful photos and clothes. Too bad there wasn’t a classic boat in the last photo of the couple on the dock.
