After a long bout with cancer, famed fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has died and the cause is not totally clear. De la Renta was 82 and had reportedly battled the disease in 2006. However, later that same year, the legendary designer said that he was "totally clean." "The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die," he told an audience at New York's 92Y "Fashion Talks" series in June 2013. "We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life." CNN
The designer has dressed most of high society including every first lady since Jackie O, and even First lady Mrs. Obama. His final big event was the wedding of George Clooney's bride Amal. This extremely sought after designer has been around for nearly half a century. He was born on July 22, 1932 in the Dominica Republic, and was able to see his designs all over Europe and the World. De la Renta will be missed by all who knew him, and by the world of fashion.
