12 Gorgeous Moments From Hollywoods Love Affair With Oscar de la Renta
Gowns by Oscar de la Renta, the iconic designer who died Monday, have been practically obligatory for Hollywood's most fashionable for decades. From the Academy Awards to Cannes to the Golden Globes, there was scarcely a red carpet in the past 15 years that didn't showcase a big star, or three, wearing his designs. Born in the Dominican Republic, de la Renta launched his first line in 1965 in New York by way of Madrid and Paris, where he studied fashion with legends at Lanvin and Balenciaga. Celebrities paid homage to the iconic designer across social media channels after news of his death from complications from cancer was confirmed by his wife, Annette. "I had the honor of wearing Mr. de la Renta's clothes at some of the most important moments of my life," Glee star Lea Michele told Mashable. In a film about the designer for a Bill Clinton Presidential Library exhibit last year, Vogue's Anna Wintour said de la Renta's "Success is wrapped up in his incredible joie de vivre." That joy was on display in the video below, in which de la Renta serenades Sex and the City star, and long-time de la Renta devotée, Sarah Jessica Parker with the help of a full mariachi band at an event in New York City in 2011. Below are 12 ultra-glamorous red carpet moments from the last 15 years, courtesy of Hollywood's biggest stars and the late, great Oscar de la Renta.
