So I was going through a fashion blog and peeped a picture of Oscar De La Renta with a young black man. At first I thought it was his escort or something, but then I remembered De La Renta is known to be quite the ladies man. Could it be his….son? Meet Moses De La Renta, Heir to the Oscar De La Renta brand.

It was the summer of 1984. A few nuns were strolling the streets of La  Romana, a resort town in the Dominican Republic, when they heard a  baby’s screams coming from a dumpster. The news soon reached the bronzed  ears of the city’s most renowned resident, Oscar de la Renta, who at  the time was mourning the death of his first wife. (Via NY Observer)

While I hate to be color struck, isn’t it F*cking awesome that the heir to such a classic, iconic fashion brand is a Dominican, black man?
