Looking Back: Oscar de la Renta

As you may or may not know, this week is a sad one for the fashion world. One of the greatest has passed away at age 82 on Monday, Oscar de la Renta. He was truly an exquisite master of design and will forever be one of fashion's most treasured artists. Today, to honor Mr. de la Renta, we are looking at some of his pieces that rank high on my list of favorites.

This bohemian gown is to die for. The off-the-shoulder neckline and semi-sheer white fabric could not be more gorgeous on this tiered gown. Boy, what I'd do to get my hands on this masterpiece!

Hello FABULOUS! The detailed bodice on this piece is beyond! So delicate and beautiful in pattern and so bold and fierce in black! And the mastermind that de la Renta had to be to pair it with the voluminous skirt, be still my heart!

How fab does Zooey look in this red hot gown?! The sweetheart neckline will forever be my favorite! Not to mention the perfectly flattering shape of a fit bodice with a flared, voluminous skirt!

Lastly, I can't tell you how much I love this delicate gown. The detailing is beautifully feminine and just the right shade of baby pink. Accented with gold, this piece is gorgeously detailed.

Fabulous gowns, forever an icon, Oscar de la Renta,
