Remembering Oscar de La Renta

2014-10-21 12.07.06 pm

Oscar de la Renta died today at his home in Kent, Connecticut, after a long battle with cancer​. He was 82. When I found out myself, I was speechless. We have lost one of the most brilliant and elegant men in the fashion industry. This man absolutely defined and exemplified true glamour. Just last year De la Renta received the Founders Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. All of his collections have always been flawlessly polished, feminine, and simply glamorous. There is no one on earth that makes a woman feel more beautiful than Oscar de la Renta.

Here are some of my favorite fashion moments by him:

Sarah Jessica Parker, 2014 Met Gala


Cameron Diaz, 2010 Academy Awards 


Carrie Underwood, 2012 Billboard Music Awards


Amy Adams, 2013 Academy Awards


Zooey DeChanel, 2013 Golden Globe Awards 

All of these moments were complete notable moments in fashion, worn by legendary style icons, done by the greatest designer to ever live.

“A huge mistake we make is forgetting that one day we will die. We think that we are going to live forever. I always say life is a little like a garden. There is a time to plant, then a time you have to weed. Just think about people you’ve deeply cared for. And then think of the people you wish you’d spent more time with,” he told Gotham. “I always say this: Live, love and laugh.” – Oscar de la Renta
