Oscar de la Renta once said, “walk like you have three men behind you.” Sound advice from a fashion legend and icon. While the fashion world is mourning the loss of 82-year-old, de la Renta, who passed away Monday, there have been floods of tributes from people around the world for the beloved designer. Oscar de la Renta was one of the first fashion designers I heard of when I was growing up. I loved looking at his incredible designs that were the epitome of femininity. You always knew Oscar night would be filled with his gowns and starlets would relish being asked who they were wearing.
It’s definitely a sad day, but we must celebrate his legacy and how he shaped decades of fashion. The Dominican Republic-born designer styled everyone from Audrey Hepburn to First Lady Michelle Obama and most recently, designed Amal Alamuddin’s wedding gown. He worked for Balenciaga, Dior and Elizabeth Arden before launching his namesake brand.
Reporters and industry folk often talked about how lovely and kind he was. A true gentleman. Farewell to this amazing gentleman.
