AN OASIS IN THE SKY - RANDOLPH DUKE


The invitation arrived...

Dinner at my place Saturday Night 
 'MIDNIGHT AT THE OASIS'
Wear a Caftan!

The host - RANDOLPH DUKE - a celebrated Hollywood style-maker/designer/author and creator of luscious, sexy gowns worn by some of Hollywood's most luscious, sexy actresses down THE red carpet... and recent Santa Fe resident.

Who could resist... I didn't. It was a glamorous and delicious evening in a mountain top retreat.





Stepping through the front door - an oasis of plants.





A grand piano.
 Randolph studied classical piano before turning his sights
 to fashion and design.






Surfaces festooned with glamour...








Everywhere you looked, a sumptuous vignette of comfort and delight; like stepping into the pages of a beautiful coffee table book. 


And, speaking of books,they were everywhere; enough to read for a thousand and one nights.

The views from the spacious patio were breathtaking - Santa Fe far below and the cloud-filled sky above...


THE  OASIS  SCENE WAS  SET 

THE GUESTS ARRIVED - resplendent in caftans and gorgeous dresses...


Our host with a woman of mystery...













As the evening progressed, the lights from below mirrored the stars above.  And all the candles were lit. Quite magical.






The spectacular food was served....







Our beautiful 'chef' takes a well deserved moment...


THANK YOU RANDOLPH!
