Fashion is just as important to us as diamonds and antique jewelry are, so as a result we’d like to note the passing of legendary designer Oscar De La Renta.

 

While his importance is mainly the result of his stature as an apparel artist, it is also undoubtedly due to his being the go-to dressmaker for stars and politicians (or wives of) alike. He has most recently made Amal Alamuddin’s gown for her wedding to George Clooney, and worked for former first ladies like Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton and Jackie Onassis (some fifty odd years ago for the last!) – as well as former secretary of state Madeleine Albright.
