Legendary Fashion Designer Oscar De La Renta has passed away at 82. De la Renta, born in Dominican Republic in 1932, was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.  He moved to Madrid when he was just 18 and was soon bit by the fashion bug where he went on to work for huge fashion houses like Balenciaga and then Lanvin in Paris. He later dressed fashion icon Jackie Kennedy in the 60’s before dressing most first ladies like Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush.

De La Renta has also dressed Oprah, Penelope Cruz, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Cameron Diaz, but most most recently designed Amal Clooney’s wedding dress. 

So very sad…a loss of a great talent!
