Looking back at the many, many beautiful fashions designed by Oscar de la Renta over the years, I found myself saying, over and over, "Oh, this one was a favourite"... Then I had a moment of recognition. You see, I have always thought that there are so many incredibly talented, unique fashion designers in the world that I could not possibly choose a favourite. But, now, I know I do have a favourite designer, and it would have to be the late Oscar de la Renta. His feminine, glamorous dresses make me swoon.
His passing this week has made me cherish his gifts of beauty to the world even more than ever before. I know I'm far from alone in saying that he was truly a great designer, one whose remarkable fashions will continue to inspire us for many years to come. He will be missed.
Here are 20 of my favourite Oscar de la Renta designs. I could have included many more images, but these will have to suffice as my tribute to this beloved fashion designer.
