Remembering Oscar de la Renta: SF Style Mavens Share Their Memories

It had become known as “The Oscar Show,” Saks Fifth Avenue’s and the League to Save Lake Tahoe’s annual luncheon and fashion show with iconic fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who presented his Collection under sun-drenched skies in a spectacular Lake Tahoe setting. Deemed the highlight of Tahoe’s summer season, the show will go on Aug. 1, 2015, when a special tribute will be paid to de la Renta, who lost his graceful battle to cancer on Oct. 20. Haute Living asked a few Bay Area women (and men) to share their thoughts on the gifted man who created frocks for fashionistas worldwide.

‘Car Matchmaker’ Spike Feresten Picks 9 Luxury Vehicles That WILL Break the Bank

As the host of the new original series Car Matchmaker, Spike Fersten takes a prospective car buyer on a journey they’ll never forget. On his new show, the Emmy nominated writer, who previously worked with both David Letterman and on Seinfeld, meets with a buyer desperately looking for their ideal vehicle. Spike gets to know them, and then uses his humor, passion and automotive knowledge to find three different cars perfectly suited to that person. Expect to see a few of Spike’s celebrity pals such as Seth Meyers, Jerry Seinfeld, Will Forte and even Fabio to make cameos this season. In celebration of his new series, Spike decided to share his picks for the top luxury cars on the market. Warning (or is that a challenge?), these haute autos certainly cost a few pretty pennies…and then some.
