Chelsea Clinton Reveals Baby Charlotte Received One Of The Last Dresses Oscar De La Renta Ever Made!
Wow! It doesn't get much sweeter than this!
And one involves her now eight-month-old daughter, Charlotte!
Before passing away due to complications from cancer at the age of 82, Chelsea revealed the iconic designer knit a pink dress for her daughter. She divulged:
"The last conversation I ever had with Oscar was when my husband, Mark, and I called to thank him for Charlotte's gift, to see how he was doing, to see how he was feeling, to tell him that we were thinking about him, that we loved him. And of course all Oscar wanted to do was to talk about Charlotte — to see how she was doing, who did she look like, was she healthy, how was I feeling so soon after having given birth…He was always relentlessly focused on the future: whether a new season, or a new child, and yet he never forgot who his family and his friends and his colleagues were, with whom he had already created his legacy.
The mom of one continued:
"But most of all, Oscar had a generous spirit, a generous mind, and a truly limitless heart. The dress that Oscar made for Charlotte was among the last — if not the very last thing — he ever made. I will make sure that she knows that she is one very lucky little girl to have been given such a gift. I will also make sure that she knows that she's even luckier to live in a world that could create someone who was such a creator as Oscar de la Renta. And that we are better for the life that he lived and all the love that he gave away. I miss him every single day. Thank you all very much."
Alright. Cue the waterworks!
Is Charlotte officially the luckiest girl in the world, or what?? Hope she cherishes that knit frock forever.
Careful, Gigi Hadid's a biter!
On Monday, it seems the model brought her party shoes for Refinery29's CFDA Fashion Awards after-party in NYC at The Top of The Standard.
But she was not alone! The blonde beauty was spotted with her bestie (and rumored love interest) Joe Jonas.
The duo certainly got playful in the party's photo booth.
However, it seems the Burnin' Up singer was getting cozier with singer, Jhené Aiko during the picture taking session — which resulted in a bite from Gigi!
We're seeing red! And we like it!
Diane and Jhené both rocked Prabal Gurung, although their respective dresses were completely different.
Diane's strapless number was sequined throughout and featured black bands along the bodice — while Jhene's gown featured a sexy square neckline and side cut-outs.
Karlie stood out by choosing a somewhat matronly Diane von Furstenberg dress featuring polka dots throughout and puffy sleeves, but the very low scoop neckline saved the gown from being too dowdy.
Moral of the story: you can never really go wrong with red!

Drink in all this beauty, y'all!
There wasn't a bit of doubt that they looked stunning from the neck up, but their outfits were a different story.
January wore a J Mendel strapless jumpsuit that brought plenty of edginess to the event thanks to that wrapped, cut-out bodice, but we wish the pants had been tapered.
The bunched-up fabric around the ankles and the wrinkling along the thighs ruined an otherwise polished look.
Katie was super sleek in an olive green Ralph Lauren satin gown, which was complemented by her shiny long locks.
It wasn't very striking, but it worked! And Katie's pink cheeks were adorable!
Finally, there was Victoria, who wore a two-toned number of her own design with draped, surplice bodice and bias-cut skirt.
Though we usually love Posh Spice's designs, this gown was too underwhelming.
What did you think of these looks, Perezcious readers???

Kim Kardashian's Dress Was Literally On Fire At The CFDA Awards! Find Out Who Came To Her Rescue HERE!
Well, that was a close one!
She shared to Instagram, writing:
"Shout out to Pharrell & Helen who saved my life last night! LOL After the awards at dinner the feathers of my dress caught on fire from a candle & they jumped on me to get it out! #WereOn🔥"
Wow! Can you imagine what would have happened if Pharrell and his wife Helen Lasichanh weren't there?
We don't even want to think about it, but we're sure Kanye West would have stepped right in to save her and baby number two!
Thankfully, everyone was okay. Though who knows what happened to her feathered frock!
