Ann Romney gave her first big speech last night at the Republican National Convention last night, and she wanted her look to reflect the importance of the moment. “It was going to be like my wedding night; I wasn’t going to let [Mitt] know what I was going to wear,” reported. In the end, she voted for a belted A-line design by Oscar de la Renta in a bright red hue that played off the main color of the Republican party. Representatives from the label tell that the cardinal silk faille dress is from Oscar's pre-fall 2012 collection, and is available for $1,990 at the designer's stores (visit for a list of locations). As for her choice of designer, the American label is known for dressing First Ladies—de la Renta was famous for dressing Jackie Kennedy in the '60s. That said, his pieces have not landed on Michelle Obama, and he famously spoke out about her decision to wear foreign designers rather than American labels last year. So, do you like Romney's look?
