Fashion Week SS07: Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta is the Wizard of Oz of New York fashion: so powerful and talented that you half expect another, regular guy to appear from behind the curtain and tell you it's all an illusion. But in this case, the wizard is truly a wizard, and the magic he makes each season with his effortlessly feminine, sublime clothes is real. Here's who came to see the show.

P.S. The S&M-esque black patent platform sandal you see repeatedly - on Carine Roitfeld, editor of French Vogue, and another show-goer - is by Marc Jacobs and seems to be the shoe of the moment.
