Oscar de la Renta, fashion icon, dead at 82
Dominican-born Oscar de la Renta rose from the fashion houses of Spain to become a worldwide brand, his evening gowns the favorites of royalty, movie stars and First Ladies. Amal Alamuddin wore de la Renta when she recently married George Clooney in Venice.

Iconic fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, whose designs were the choice of First Ladies and movie stars, died Monday. He was 82.

His evening wear creations, often gracing stars as they strode red carpets, were both coveted and timeless, and made him one of the most recognized names in fashion. His designs seemed to be everywhere, leading former Mayor Michael Bloomberg to joke once that de la Renta’s creations “have been to more award shows than Meryl Streep.”

Amal Alamuddin wore de la Renta when she married actor George Clooney in Venice last month. His designs were worn by the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush; by actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Penelope Cruz and Anne Hathaway; and by royal figures such as Archduchess Maria of Austria and Queen Noor of Jordan.

De la Renta was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. He appeared frail in recent months, most recently during his women’s wear show in September, and the fashion house he founded named a successor last week.
