The legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta passed away last night at the age of 82 in his Connecticut home from complications with cancer, which he had been diagnosed with in 2006. The Dominican-American designer specialized in evening wear, having been famed with being the couturiers to dress Jackie Kennedy in the 1960’s. He worked for luxury brands Lanvin and Balmain, as well as under his own eponymous name.
Designer Marc Jacobs wrote: “We lost a fashion icon. Thoughts & prayers for family, friends, & all at Oscar de la Renta. We’ll miss you Oscar!”
It’s no surprise that Lana Del Rey has quickly become a modern fashion icon, with her signature pout and classic style, and fashion brands everywhere have taken notice (see the Mulberry Del Rey bag, duh!). Channel her retro look with a A-line style dress and cropped wool jacket. Complete the look with a pair of pumps and cat-eye eye frames (and don’t forget a swipe of red lipstick!).
Who else is hopeful Lana will create a fashion line in the future?
