"Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who dressed generations of celebrities in red carpet and evening gowns, has died after battling cancer at 82.
He first came to fame dressing Jackie Kennedy, and went on to dress well-known women of the 1960s through the present. Among the actresses who appreciated his red carpet gowns were Cameron Diaz, Oprah Winfrey, Kristen Stewart, Penelope Cruz and Jessica Chastain.
Born in the Dominican Republic to a powerful family, de la Renta went to study painting in Spain and became and apprenticed with Cristobal Balenciaga before moving to Paris to work at Lanvin and Balmain. He launched his ready-to-wear label in 1965 in New York.
He married Francois Langlade, editor of French Vogue, who died in 1983. His second wife, who survives him, is philanthropist Annette Reed.”
