I love the Oscar de la Renta . There is something so beautiful yet fun about it!

Although I love the Oscar, as a perfectionist I don’t know if you will be pleased w/ the quality of the replica’s material.

I think the Rivini would be the most flattering. I can see someone getting lost in the Oscar despite it being an amazing gown. I would also be hesitant of the Oscar looking like the same quality if you’re having a replica made.

Both are really popular and you’d look great in either, I’m sure. I have to say that I’m getting a little tired of the Oscar dress. The girls at the salon near me that carries it calls it the calamari dress.
I also found the Oscar dressesva little short in the torso, which might be why I’m biased. I love, love, love Rivni dresses. The Dari is my fav. 🙂

@squeak35 & west.coast.blonde: Yea, I can see how the Oscar de la Renta looks more complicated to make, and easier to mess up. i wonder if i could ask the seller which gown she feels she could make the most accurately, or if she would tell me honestly if she feels she could make it look the same? i found close up pictures of the fabrics and ruffle details on both dresses

I also tried emailing a person who bought the exact same rivini lismora replica from landybridal to see what she thought but i dont think she ever saw the message cuz no reply

honestly, i don’t see how an ebay replica maker could ever match the quality of the Oscar. the Rivini dress is much more realistic.

@elliestan: Agreed, 100%. They are expensive for a reason.

I agree with most of you. Go with the Rivini!

I love that Rivini!!! I think the Oscar has too much going on

They are both gorgeous dresses but I doubt a replica of them would look the way you want it to. They are too intricate and the shape relies on the use of good fabric, which you will not get from a replica.

Definitely the Rivini! Wise choice on a replica company too- I’ve seen some gorgeous dresses come from Landy Bridal/asapbay, including some similar to the Rivini. I think the Oscar would just be too difficult due to the type of fabric layers in the skirt = alot of potential for something to go wrong.

The oscar de la renta is SO BEAUTIFUL, but I’d be worried about quality of the final product. I’m not sure it would end up looking like what you wanted exactly. The rivini is beautiful too, I say stay the course!
