Oscar De La Renta

Oscar De La RentaLast month saw the sad passing of a fashion legend, Oscar de la Renta. The 82 year old passed peacefully at home after an eight year battle with cancer.

It was only a few small months ago that he created the stunning Amal Alamuddin’s dress for her wedding to the world’s most eligible bachelor, George Clooney.

Today we celebrate the creative life of a fashion superstar by curating a collection of Oscar de la Renta’s incredible creations on celebrities from the world of fashion, movies, music and politics.

Oscar completely understands who he is and who he is dressing. He never tried to be avant-garde or difficult. He just does really good clothes, never overtly sexy but attractive, colourful and feminine.
