Documented 2003 Oscar de la Renta Silk Leopard Print Dress
This dress is very interesting because it was not a runway piece shown that year but a version of it was worn by none other then Hilary Clinton. My client bought this at one of the charity sales in NYC and I am sure that it was a custom made piece for a client based on the Hilary dress. It has no label but is the exact fabric of Hilary's and has all the hallmarks and fine work of an ODLR piece. It is gorgeous and has those classic Oscar lines with a fitted bodice and his signature full skirt with all the underskirts built in underneath to give it that beautiful shape. The bodice is sleeveless and fitted to the body. At the back it drops into a low V to show an expanse of skin. The skirt has beautiful fullness and movement and the hem is curved up and inside with a deep inner hem of fabric and silk that helps to give it the fullness. A secondary shorter interior skirt adds to the fullness you see. A wonderful and iconic piece. Excellent condition
Lined in a combination of the same exterior silk, silk and a silk organza. It closes with a back zipper. Secondary inner skirt and pockets hidden along the seams. No size tag or labels. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.
