this oscar is no grouch: part 2

hospice evening was a showcase of high fashion this weekend, before, during and after oscar de la renta's spring line came down the runway. while running around with photographers during the cocktail party, i spotted a number of women in dynamite dresses and accessories - patty griffith's gorgeous one-strap, deep purple gown; ann heathwood's elegantly embellished, tiered pearl necklace; saks palm beach's elisabeth munder in her flowing, mermaid-like, gold skirt; and cathy flagg in her whimsically ruffled pale pink dress.

once the lights went down and guests took their seat along the runway, my firm's vp and i stood back, accepted a glass of champagne and enjoyed the show. we quietly chatted about what we liked (the gold, strapless sequin gown; the models' braided "headbands;" the hyacinth, banded cap-sleeve dress; and textured gowns in lacy blacks and bright teals and purples in all kinds of shapes), and the few things we did not so much care for (the hats; linen cropped pants; and pleated twill linen shorts that looked too much like coolats from the early 90s).

all in all it was a fantastic and fashionable night accented in orange and stunning balls of roses. and for a surprisingly stylish celeb in the front row...rush limbaugh was there in support of the palm beach membership of the hospice foundation of palm beach county.
