Oscar de la Renta
Oscar de la Renta was the doyen of
American fashion. (Usually it's "doyenne," but that's because usually
it's a woman.) And as the doyen, he went out with a bangen. One of his last
acts was to clothe the bride of George Clooney. That's People magazine
Somehow, he knew all the right
moves. Who to know, who to marry, who to give dinner parties for, and
especially who to dress. (Yeah, I know it's "whom," but it just doesn't
feel right.) Four FLsOTUS wore his clothes, and only the present one did it
grudgingly. He knew the difference between runway fashion and real-life
fashion. He knew how to be a couturier for the ladies of Park Avenue. He knew
how to be a fashion icon on the red carpets of Hollywood. He knew how to use
gossip columnists and Twitter. He had a couple of great marriages (both came
with money and a great deal of it), a few great houses, and a ton of great
friends. He knew how to have a great time.
And most important of all, until the
day he died, he had a great tan.
