DALLAS (AP) - More than 60 creations that span designer Oscar de la Renta's 50-year career are going on display in Dallas.
"Oscar de la Renta: Five Decades of Style" opens Saturday at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum and runs through Oct. 5.
The exhibit includes gowns worn by actresses on red carpets and those worn by former first ladies including Laura Bush, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Nancy Reagan.
Laura Bush says the exhibit was de la Renta's idea. She said the designer asked if he could do a show at the library, and she was thrilled because she'd always envisioned "a show of clothes" there.
Her daughter Jenna Bush Hager's wedding dress is among the garments on display, along with the former first lady's turquoise mother-of-the bride dress.
