From The Hollywood Reporter:
In September - just weeks before he passed away on Monday at the age of 82 - [we] named Oscar de la Renta one of 2014's most influential red-carpet designers. And that he was, with his graceful, modernly elegant gowns making an astounding 54 appearances on red carpets during the past 12 months.

"I feel very lucky to work with such extraordinary women. It is a tremendous honour and a great pleasure. My role as a designer is to make a woman feel her best. If I have made a woman feel beautiful, then that would be my ultimate contribution," [he said].
Favourite designer of such disparate bedfellows as Oprah Winfrey, Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Nancy Reagan, Mr de la Renta - an emigré to Spain from the Dominican Republic in the early 50s - was one of the world's most successful couturiers, eclipsing even his mentors Balenciago and Lanvin to preside over a $200m international empire.

He will be sadly missed by the ladies of the red carpet at events the world over.

To mark his passing, here's a little something from two ladies of fashion, RuPaul vs Madonna:
