9 Oscar de la Renta gowns that will take your breath away

Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta passed away yesterday, but what he left behind was an absolutely stunning, untouchable legacy.

“The great thing about fashion is that it always moves forward.”

This quote from Oscar de la Renta is more poignant than ever, with his recent passing. And while, yes, fashion will continue to move forward, we thought it appropriate to take a moment and look at the past; at just a tiny slice of inimitable fashion moments brought to us by Oscar himself and the starlets who wore him so well.
