LADIES FIRST: Oscar de la Renta joined Mark Ingram at his East 55th Street bridal atelier Thursday to raise a glass to the staff for being the designer’s top-selling outpost. With security detail for various U.N. dignitaries and Clinton Initiative attendees posted at nearby corners, the conversation couldn’t help but turn to politics and the beyond-anemic economy. “Fashion is not political. I like to dress every lady,” said a diplomatic de la Renta, who, after all, has clad both Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. “Whoever is elected president, we will have a very attractive first lady.”

Until that happens, Bush is keeping up appearances and buzzed by the designer’s showroom Wednesday. Campaigning seems to have kept Cindy McCain away for a spell, but de la Renta has designed some clothes for her. Like Barack Obama and John McCain, de la Renta is also all about bipartisanship. “Who am I going to vote for? I don’t know yet. If Hillary would have been the candidate, I would certainly have voted for her. She is a close friend. But I never vote for a party. I have always voted for a person. Sometimes I’ve made big mistakes, sometimes I have done the right thing.”
